We can Remote client desktop 2. We can know If client device changed the IP 7 Neon-Geissler Admin May 11, 2016 13:18 Support to use one E-Mail Adress (Acount) for multiple Avast Business Portals would be cool. I am IT technician and that would help me a lot . 14 Manley Peterson May 13, 2016 16:50 Allow portal admins the ability to control if the Avast client asks user for a reboot. I would prefer the option to never ask for a reboot. At our school, the computers are shut off at night and the Avast installer can finish at that time. We have had several instances where the students are taking state tests and Avast pops up a message to "Please Reboot" and it has caused issues with students and testing in the secure testing programs.

You just added the MSI download but it is for paid version only. 11 Zac Graham May 18, 2016 18:25 Allow all client settings be controlled by dashboard. Currently there is no way i can set certain settings without being at the users pc. 3 Michelle Seipel May 23, 2016 17:11 Allow the cloud to set the Update > Details > Show notification box is an error occurs checkbox value (we would turn it off so users don't freak out). 3 Michelle Seipel May 23, 2016 17:12 Allow the cloud to set the Troubleshooting > Load Avast services only after loading other system services checkbox value. 3 Stephen Hogan June 01, 2016 11:41 "Billing Administrator" with the option to either log into the portal with only Account rights and download the invoice, or have the invoice emailed to them. Also, multiple email addresses allowed for "Payment Info". 5 Craig Huiting June 13, 2016 16:12 Allow the ability to not include the Safe Zone Browser in the install. At this point we have to uninstall it for each machine one by one from the console. 14 Manley Peterson June 15, 2016 13:10 Add the ability to run reports manually or have them emailed to you on a schedule. Everything from how many total viruses for a time frame or how many computers need attention, etc. 7 Charlie Gunz June 23, 2016 14:03 The popup for Reboot Computer pops up with the Reboot button selected. If this happens while typing, the Spacebar can activate the Reboot button and restart the computer. Please have Cancel selected by default. 10 Aaron Shuford June 29, 2016 20:12 Seconding the Remote Desktop Client. Additionally, allow the administrator to prompt for remote access. I manage computers in 3 different cities. 2 of those cities only have 2 or 3 computers, and are 30 minutes to an hour drive from here. Being able to troubleshoot computer and register issues from my office would be outstanding.Another feature that would be nice would be a dashboard app, or a mobile version of the dashboard. When I am out and about, this would allow me to quickly and easily activate an Avast install without locating a computer. (If you do an App, Android please.) Edited by Aaron Shuford June 29, 2016 20:16 7 Ryan Lewis August 25, 2016 08:21 Make a mobile friendly version of the dashboard. Currently, I attempt to use my Android phone with Chrome browser and the site is not usable. Contact me if you want details. 3 KZS DABAS August 25, 2016 13:08 - Allow portal admins the ability to control if the Avast client asks user for a reboot. I would prefer the option to never ask for a reboot. +1 - Make a mobile friendly version of the dashboard +1 - Remote client desktop +1 2 Martin LeRoy August 25, 2016 18:12 How about a way to download History log from admin portal for Avast for Ed free? 4 Darwis Erino August 26, 2016 02:54 Allowing export list of devices to pdf / xls format 3 Richard Christophe August 30, 2016 14:23 Need a system to centralize the program updates (with a update directory on general settings) and avoid each device download same update. 3 Heiko Wegener August 31, 2016 06:15 - Please allow to Upgrade a single Server / Workstations to Premium. THX 4 david.engle September 06, 2016 06:34 Ability to run reports by group that includes the machine name and threats blocked and sorted by machine and threat detail. With this, email ability to send report to third party from primary account holder. This helps validating the expense for the services to the client. 1 Mark Schoenberger September 07, 2016 18:47 Currently, Avast requires a password to temporarily disable Avast. Please make it possible for the end user to disable Avast temporarily without requiring a password. Some of our end users need to be able to install software and Avast interferes with some installs, especially Adobe products. 4 Matthieu Paret September 12, 2016 09:54 Add a linux client 1 Marco Banfi September 20, 2016 14:34 Web interface: would be nice to allow date format. 3 Egor Shumeyko September 21, 2016 13:43 Please add ability to "Disable" or "pause" devices. I have some pre-setup computers that sit offline until someone needs them and they show up as "in-danger" because they've been offline for too long. 4 Benoit Neil September 23, 2016 10:54 I agree with, and emphases what Egor Shumeyko said: the feature which "freezes / disables / pause" the device should turn off the protection (and billing of course) without removing the device from the list. The device should then be considered as "inactive" (or "disabled"). The device may either be reactivated : manually from the console, or automatically when the device goes online again. (Having the boolean choice to allow auto-reactivation would be very nice). Maybe you (I mean "Avast team") may want to : Wait for the device to go online to be tagged as "inactive" and thus disable the billing. Warn the administrator about disabled devices which are online (to encourage him/her to re-activate them). I would consider these as acceptable restrictions. This is especially useful for spare devices (= in a storage), waiting for a new user to grab them. 2 tcleland September 29, 2016 20:41 1. with the send a message would it possible to have it be able to be replied to? Not sure how much work that would take but it would be nice to have it be a 2 way communication. 2. also it would be nice to have a better way for Avast to update the DHCP name it shows. Because we have changed names of our machines to reflect a standard naming convention and it never seems to show up properly in Avast. 3. an easier way to download a default installer so we can have it on hand all the time. 8 Jordan Jasper October 04, 2016 15:57 Allow inherited settings in policies. So Building A has Policy A, Building B has policy B, but they receive trickle down settings. For example Lab 1 located in building A inherits settings from Labs policy which then inherits from Building A which inherits settings from the default policy but has options to manually override the inherited settings in each lower hierarchy policy (IE I want some exclusions across everything, but may want different general settings or Antivirus settings per location) Default Policy--Building A Policy----Labs---------Lab 1 Policy---------Lab 2 Policy----Offices---------Office 1--Building B Policy----Labs---------Lab 1 Policy---------Lab 2 Policy----Offices---------Office 1 Basically the same features that the Enterprise Administration Console allows. I understand I can copy policies, but then if I change the top policy that I copied it from those settings don't transfer over to the new, and I can't re-copy because I have modified settings on the second policy I created. 1 2 3 › » Please sign in to leave a comment.
