Can I schedule a push out of upgrading clients?

Created: 03 Apr 2013 | 5 comments

I know I can upgrade clients by adding 10 or more to a list and have the setup.exe I made run and upgrade systems. I was wondering if there was a way to schedule upgrades to run overnight? I don’t want to interrupt users by installing it during the day since most systems are Windows 7 and need a reboot to complete the install to 12.1 from 11 SEP. And I don’t want to use bandwidth pushing it offsite during the day.

Thanks for any help/information.

Go to Clients page >> Install packages tab

Add a client install package and add a package to upgrade the clients.

Check the 'Upgrade Schedule' box and set it to what you need.
