Progress bar on patch deployment + Summary of patching
This idea is already published. It is marked as 'Completed', but there is still no progress bar, so I decided to create a new idea, because I don't know another way to respond to the status, so it will be recognized by Kace.
I would like to see a progress bar on the client while patching for the current patching job.
I think it would be enough for example if there are 10 patches to deploy, 6 are already finished, the progress bar would show 60% finished.
Maybe it is also a good idea to see a short summary which patches were successful, which not.
8 years later and being able to track patching on an individual end point easier is still a needed feature. Only way to do it now if run a repot or manually refresh inventory on the device and check under the security tab.

Why even bother voting here really?
Any chance that this could be completed sometime this decade?
We need more info on the client notification popup.
A summary of patching, and expanded patching information in the device inventory would be fantastic. Currently, it's very difficult to determine which patches are running on a system and when they installed. The "Patches reported as installed" list is virtually useless for tracking deployments or issues with patches - seeing this expanded out with install dates/times

Not just a progress bar on the client but a progress bar on the k1000 as well.
This uservoice: https://kace.uservoice.com/forums/82699-k1000/suggestions/1883957-progress-bar-when-deploying-patches is flagged as "Completed" but this is not the case.

Agree. and similar to this: https://kace.uservoice.com/forums/82699-k1000/suggestions/3987437-allow-a-user-to-patch-on-demand
Lots of complaints. So, my votes count as representative of 700+ users :)

Also having the End users be able to see how many patches are completed versus how many are left to install. either with a # of # or a progress bar.

The patch status is lacking visual reporting. This is a need for those who manage device patching. Reporting is all well and good, but to be able to see real time status updates is a time saver. The 6.3 update did add some limited patch status numbers on the scheduling page. This is limited and not very helpful. I will say it's better than nothing. Other products do have real time status updates which allows for better strategic planning throughout the day. I do ask the KACE dev team to dive a little deeper and provide real time patch status info.

This would be so nice to have.
