upgrade software from dashboard context menu - set time

Recommended Posts

There is a very handy feature on the dashboard which allow you to right click and update out of date software versions.

However I would like to schedule these updates, so they take place out of office hours.

Is there a way to right click and schedule for a later time?

regards

EDIT: esmc 7.0.577.0 on win 2012r2

I believe you could set time for the tasks to run in the Client Tasks , where you just make a new client task and assign it to software installation and assign the software you want , and I believe there you have somewhere an option to put time where you could update.

When you click on the context menu from dashbaord, it does create a new client task, but is set to run ASAP.

My question is "is it possible to set a scheduled time from the context menu". When using context menu there are a number of options to click to accept, but time of schedule is not one of them.

btw my mistake, is not "right click", here is what I mean:

Try to go to Clients' Tasks on your left hand , Make a new task and see if there is a time for execution

That only makes sense if there is a delay in "start ASAP"

Yes there is a new task created, but by the time you get to it, might already have started.

So, do you know if there is a delay with the default for tasks created this way? How long is that delay for?

Most of the software upgrades need a reboot, this is not something that you want to happen on many machines during the working day so wouldn't it be better to be able to select a scheduled time when using context menu?

The reason why I use the context menu is to save time (as targets automatically selected), please ESET can you add an option to schedule from here.

@roga This is actually not possible as of now. The "one click" upgrade triggers the task right away, with the ASAP trigger. ASAP trigger means, the task is started as soon as it reaches the client / computer (after successful replication attempt).  We can create improvement request, to add a "fork" in the journey, to "upgrade right away" & "schedule for later". I have to say, that I really like the IDEA, so thanks for reporting.

Thanks MichalJ, the "one click" is a helpful idea, will be even better if we can schedule.
