software center custom notification
I often get questions from users saying "is this legit?" referring to the toast/balloon notifications presented on their desktop from Software Center. The notification states "Software changes are required. Your IT department requires changes to the software on your computer. click here for options." This could easily be confused with spoof antivirus popups claiming your computer needs to be fixed!
I would like the ability to customize these notifications in the Administration > Client Settings node > Computer Agent settings. The "Organization name displayed in Software Center" shows on the Title page AFTER you open SC, but it would be great if this would also appear on the toast/balloon notification when new software is required to be installed.
This will help reduce/remove the confusion that this notification could be malicious spyware/adware abusing your trust of system notifications.
Agree, we also have customers calling helpdesk because of those messages.

Sounds like a great idea!

I agree. As the ISO, I am constantly receiving calls or emails from our customers concerned that the popup may be malicious. David's suggestion would make it easier.
