Alert when user logs off
Is it possible using PDQ to setup an alert when a user locks or logs off their computer? In my ideal scenario I would right click on a computer in pdq inventory and start a notify me when user locks their computer or logs off program. Once a user locks their computer, I would get a notification telling me they are offline. Failing that some sort of script that looks like ping but for the computers logged in status that I could glance at to check the status.
My current strategy is to add the computers to a Static collection and do a scan of 'Users and Groups' but that is limited to a single scan every 30 minutes.
Inventory isn't designed for reactionary tasks like that. The closest thing I can think of is:
This setup uses Deploy to notify you whenever a computer enters that Collection. Auto Reports can't be used for this since they still send when the Collection is empty.
If you need an instant notification, I recommend looking into an NMS like PRTG or CheckMK, or a log management system like Graylog or Splunk.
