Multiple schedules - Notifications when finished

    Hi Michael,

    I know this comes late, but I wanted to answer this in case you're still wanting to do this or if someone else would like to accomplish this.

    If I’m understanding correctly, one thing that might work is to create a collection where all machines that have received the baseline software go. So, once your deployments have completed and meet all of the conditions (e.g. installed Java, Flash, Office, iTunes, etc.), they show up in that collection.

    At a scheduled time, you would then run a deployment against that collection; it could be something as simple as a “dir” command, but nothing that would alter the configuration of the machine. Have the deployment notify on success and you would then get an email with the machines that had the “dir” command (and thus were part of the ‘completed’ collection).

    Obviously, every time this schedule is run, it’s going to show you current and past computers that meet the collection conditions. This isn’t ideal since now you need to review which computers are new and which are old. What you could do to mitigate this inelegance is to create an additional condition that sets |Application|Install Date|Between|X Days ago|1 Second ago| or some other value that makes sense with your scheduled “dir” command, your baseline installations, etc. (for more information on how to do this, please see this forum post: http://support.adminarsenal.com/entries/96121768-Reports-relative-dates-only-in-the-future- )
