  1. Manage "AMPTools set host=FQDN" via Config Profile

    It would be great to be able to set the k1000's hostname on client macOS computers via a config profile instead of having to run a post install script

  2. Ability to filter all rules based on validation logic

    A client brought up the request of wanting to be able to see all rules applied to a given PC name. An example was: which shortcuts and drive mappings are applied to all devices named PC-Example*. This was outside of looking at an sltrace file or performing a database query.

  3. email signature plain text conversion

    I am using the Outlook element to set corporate email signatures in HTML format. It works well. However, when replying to a plain text email, then no signature gets displayed at all. At the very least, it should change the signature from HTML to plain text, but it doesn't. Or, it would be nice if we can force all replies to HTML, regardless of the format of the original email?

    In ref to SR Number:4545450

    If you would like to see a plain text conversion added to Desktop Authority you can submit the request to our User Voice forum and…

  4. USB Encryption

    Option to force USB encryption if DA allows a user to use USB.
    Option for administrator to set encryption password or allow the user to set their own password.
    Option to save those passwords in the DA database in case the user forget the password.

  5. Configure default applications in Windows 10

    Currently it is only possible to configure default applications (Browser, Mail, PDF viewer) in Windows 10 by using Group Policy Templates and Windows' DISM tool to generate an XML file that can be pushed using File Operations. There should be an easier feaure included to configure default applications for certain scenarios.

  6. Actually allow Admin Right Execution for Pre/Post Engine Scripting instead of lying in your Documentation

    The documentation for DA (at least back to version 9.3) specifically states that you can add a switch (in this case /admin) to the end of the file name for any pre or post engine script, but that's not how it actually works! DA won't let you add spaces or switches to the file name. So I guess my idea is maybe, just maybe, you should make the product actually function like your own documentation states it does. Can't wait to find out what else DA doesn't do that it should!

    I can’t blame you for your frustration that the product is not behaving as advertised! I will make sure that we link any Support case you may have in the system and also work with R&D to make sure we document the product pre/post scripting more accurately – or better yet, make sure we fix the switch capability you are looking for but could not find.

    Problems are opportunities – thanks for your feedback so we can improve our product for you and many others.

  9. GPO Deploment Fix with Windows 10 Pro Client workstations. Currently unable to push out minor GPO Scripts on Windows 10 Pro Clients.

    GPO Deploment Fix with Windows 10 Pro Client workstations. Currently unable to push out minor GPO Scripts on Windows 10 Pro Clients. It looks like with the new and updated versions of Windows 10 Pro we cannot push simple GPO through Desktop Authority. It looks like Microsoft changed the way some of these things are pushed out. A fix would be nice for Desktop Authority to push out even a simple wallpaper background or lock screen for Windows 10 Pro. My understanding is that it can be done inside Windows 10 Education or Enterprise, but NOT pro.

  10. Responsive Website and Dynamic Loading

    We all should be clear the Desktop Authority Console is due for a major refresh and not that little kick that happened to Archive Manager this needs a Major.

    First in particular I find often times entry boxes are to small and get mangled when entering multiple large items into setting boxes. particular GPO with multiple line items.

    Second that huge bold black bar at the top of the page is ridiculous. It eats up 1/8 of my total screen just to put your logo on it. Time for this to go.

    Third Really unless you have 1000s of items…

  11. Improve Group Policy Template Handling

    I like Desktop Authority but I find the handling of Group Policy Items to be frusterating.
    My First issue is that its a slow responding part of the website. The time that it takes to click in and out of the policy templates, add new ADMX Files and other aspects to making configurations here is painstakingly slow. To the point I'm about to abandon using the GPO Section of DA.

    The second is the difficulty of finding a specific policy item. Often I'm not sure what ADMX file I need to add in order to apply a GPO setting and…

  12. Update documentation and examples

    Much of the documentation and examples for things like Dynamic Variables are really outdated. For example, here is the documentation and examples given for a couple variables:

    $OsType
    Operating System type:
    95 - Windows 95
    98 - Windows 98
    NT - All versions of NT/2000

    $ProfileDirAU **This one isn't in the documentation
    Full path of the "All Users" profile
    "C:\WinNT\Profiles\All Users"
    "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users"

    Consider that there is a generation of support personnel that didn't use computers with the above operation systems or folder paths. I have to stop and thing about it for a second for some of…

  13. Expert Assist Power Options

    In the Menu, under Computer Management, is a Reboot option that allows for restarting EA and various options for restarting the computer (Normal, Emergency, Hard, and Scheduled).
    I would like to see options to shut the computer down and log a user off.

  14. Task Scheduler

    Though not very often, there are times that a task needs to be scheduled on every computer. In Windows 10, there are many scheduled tasks that I like to remove or disable.

    I would like to see a Task Scheduler section in DA that allows for the configuration of a new schedule or deletion of another. This would need the ability to also create/edit sub-folders in the Task Scheduler.

  15. Global Expert Assist repository/settings

    There needs to be some sort of way to configure settings and resources for Expert Assist globally. It's nice that there is a way to change the color scheme/theme for interface, create new scripts, configure SMTP settings, and setup system monitoring but, currently, this has to be done on each and every individual computer.

    If not a global repository, at least build out the Remote Management User Profile to include those settings and files. Then, when publishing the changed files, DA can sync those files and settings to the machines.

  17. Include reporting for USB Port Security of file deletions from USB devices.

    USBPS currently only records read and write access. If a malicious user finds another users USB or decides to clean out their company provided USB we will have no record of that.

  18. DA web interface refresh and number of items

    In the Client Configuration, User, MyProfile, Drive Mappings I have well over 50 items. While looking through them I am constantly frustrated by the page refreshing and going back to the top. I like the product, but hate the web UI. I would like it if it did not refresh automatically or if it remembered where I was when it refreshes.
    The default number of items to show in Drive Mappings is 50. Every time I log into the DA web interface I have to enter 99 in order to be able to scroll through my items. Again, I like…

  19. Manage Internet Explorer Compatibility view sites

    In the Web Browser configuration element, under Windows Internet Settings there are areas to enter URL's for Restricted Sites, Trusted Sites and Local Intranet Sites. I would like to also see below this Compatibility view sites. In IE 11, it breaks many if not most enterprise applications unless the URL is entered into compatibility mode. You click the gear icon, then click Compatibility View Settings and you can add websites in there. I would love to see DA have the ability to manage this on a global scale.

    Thank you.

  20. Exchange 2013 Support

    I would like to see DA have the ability to connect Outlook profiles to an Exchange 2013 server. Currently it does not do that since Exchange 2013 creates a random GUID in front of @domainname for the server address. Plus Exchange 2013 requires Outlook Anywhere as they no longer support straight MAPI.
