MAX RM Release… Next set of 28 new Automated Tasks (RC) now live

We’re pleased to announce that further to our update a few weeks ago, we’re now ready with the next set of Automated Tasks, bringing the total up to 60 new tasks. The new scripts expand the tool set available at your disposal for offering proactive maintenance, faster remediation, and greater automation across the devices you manage.

Note that the new tasks are Release Candidate scripts that require the RC Agent (v10.3.0 an up) to run. We recommend you try them out locally on test machines first.

The new Automated Tasks…
Here is the full list of new tasks we’re adding. It includes a new ‘Uninstall Application (MSI)’ script allowing you to uninstall software. We also have a set of Hyper-V tasks in the list. The rest of the list (the light grey scripts) are now in progress and we hope to release those in the weeks ahead.
