I’m re activating this one based on the fact that we don’t show the intrusive reboot countdown after the software was installed. We still have some work to do here to make this experience meet the requested behavior.Jason Darst commented
I concur with this. Our users are extremely unhappy with the update process, to the point that we may have to look at deploying defined maintenance windows for the entire population so they know exactly when updates will occur. No one notices the toast notifications. Unless it is extremely obvious, and almost impossible to ignore, they have other things they are worried about and then when updates close things or reboots happen, they are surprised and upset. I also would like to see a lot more possible customizations on notifications.
An option to set nag reminder periods
An option to have a notification window that was top of screen and obvious
An option to specify a must acknowledge as the deadline approaches for the install
An effective way to defer the installation once the deadline is reached that works (we've had a bug in with the current implementation)
Options to allow the user to specify a time for the installation to happen would be great. With an option to have the reboot happen immediately if they want.
These options should apply to any type of push be it software update, application object, or package
It would be nice if these options had a default for the client but also allowed configuration per deployment in case we need to do something different with an urgent deployment
