LANDESK has decided (in version 2016, aka 10.0) to drop the use of summary counts when viewing a Scheduled Task, in favor of using charts.
To clarify, when you highlight a task (prior to 10.0), the right side of the console shows either charts or counts.
Here's an example of the counts:
Here's an example of the charts:
There are several problems with the charts:
- There is no total count.
- You cannot drag/drop anything onto the the right side of the screen when you're viewing charts. It's safer to drag targets onto the right side of the screen than onto the task name (because if you miss the task name, you might drag onto the wrong task).
- The return codes are meaningless unless you memorize what they represent. This could be fixed by adding a flyover description (e.g. when you point at something, it shows the description).
Even if these problems were fixed, I would still prefer the simpler view. Did LANDESK poll everyone and I missed it? If not, they should have.
The only caveat is that existing console users (during an upgrade from 9.x to 10.0) will keep their summary counts (for now). But any new console users will get the charts.
