Package Download Tree Location

I am wondering how PDQ Deploy decides where a downloaded package ends up in the Package hierarchy. It seems like whenever we download a new package, we then have to play a little game and figure out where it went. It doesn't seem to be alphabetical, or the last package/folder we had highlighted or updated. I am wondering if there is a trick to this and if there is a way to have all new package downloads always download to a "Recently Downloaded Packages" folder as an example.

I believe the new Auto Downloads will help with this a little as I assume the Packages will not move in the hierarchy when they are auto downloaded. However, from time to time we still do download a new package that we've never used before and it would be good to not have to look around trying to find it.

  • If you enable Auto Sort it should place new packages into the Packages folder alphabetically. Right-click on the Packages folder and click "Auto Sort".

    Please let me know if the odd behavior continues with Auto Sort enabled.

    As far as choosing another folder, we have an existing internal feature request ticket for this. I have no ETA on when it could be implemented.

    Also, you can click on the link in the "Package Library --> Download History" tab to jump to the package.

  • We didn't have Auto Sort enabled at the root level. After turning it on at the root level it looks like the downloads are being placed in the tree alphabetically. Thanks!
