    Weekly Notifications

    jcfarmer

      Hi, I'm new to this site (and to ePO) and I hope you can help me.

       

      I have just started working for a company that has ePO (4.5) installed on one of their test networks but has never been managed before.

       

      The company would like to start utilising ePO and have given me a list of tasks they would like it to be able to do.

       

      I am however new to the software and no one else has used it before so I am in need of some help.

       

      The current task they would like ePO to do is to send out a weekly notification (via email) updating admins of the number of existing incompliant machines. Is this possible?

       

      I have had a good look and can only see a way of setting up a notification to trigger when a number of 'new' incompliant machines are detected but not for existing machines.

       

      If you require any further information please ask and thanks in advance for the help.

       

      Thanks

          Hi...

           

          This is certainly possible - what you want to be looking at are Server Tasks. Please have a look at the relevant section of the product guide if you haven't already done so.

          In a nutshell the process would be:

           

          1) Create a new query that returns the information you want - in this case, the non-compliant machines

          2) Create a server task where the first action is to run this query, and the sub-action is to email the results to the admins

          3) Schedule the task to run once a week.

           

          HTH -
