- Trigger updates
Different bugs during processing of conditions (date/time) have been removed
Following conditions have been changed:
- Date/time - additional input Day of Week is possible
Following actions have been added:
- Notify via e-mail () - will notify you via e-mail if the defined conditions are true (e.g. if some programm has been started or some user is logged in)
- Create screenshot immediately () - creates a screenshot if the the defined conditions are true
Now you can find the SDA Settings in your My account
- User monitoring
If the user monitoring is on, you will be notified via e-mail nightly about processes, which has been executed by the users on the registered computers
Now you can setup the number of days, how long the data, collected by user monitoring, must be saved.
- Download of screenshots
You can download and save the uploaded screenshots for your documentation (this option is only available for Test and Premium users)
- Shut down at the specified time
In the new version, you can enter the time when the computer should be shut down or restarted, or put into hibernation or stand-by mode.
- Automatic wake-up (good-night feature)
If the computer hardware supports scheduled wake-up events (the most modern computer), so it is possible for example to turn off the computer and let it automatically start again for example at 08:00 o'clock.
A message box will be shown to the new users with the informations what should be checked after successful installation
- Performance improvement
The protocol of regular maintenance calls has been changed from TCP to UDP, the overhead of which is 20 times less than the overhead of TCP. In addition, this reduces the processor effort and network traffic, that is especially important if you have a slower internet connection.
- The user interface for browser of mobile devices
The mobile user interface is more faster and simpler to use. Specially the loading time of the controls is pretty short now.
- User monitoring can be switched off
The user monitoring features are optional now and can be switched on or off in the user interface. After the user monitoring has been turned off, the screenshots and window titles are not more available - they will be neither saved nor transferred to the server.
- Managed Save-Energy-Mode
Many computer users leave their computers at home running all day, for example to access certain files while traveling. The problem is that these computers wait without to do something for user's input and consume unnecessary power. Of course, you could put the computer in standby or hibernate mode, but then this computer is no longer reachable from the outside.
The new feature allows you to save energy and to reach the computer simultaneously. The computer will be put in standby mode for 10 minutes and then automatically wakes up to check whether in between the user has switched this mode off. If not, the computer will sleep for 10 minutes other minutes.
Actually you can simple uninstall the ShutDownApp service immediately from the web interface. That's the easiest way to do it: login, select the computer and click on the link for uninstalling
Some antivirus software detects spuriously malware in the NSIS installer. Therefore I had to remove the modern NSIS UI and to change the compression algorithm. More details you can find in the report
