Default Quick Delivery Task Settings

Created: 09 Feb 2010 • Updated: 12 Aug 2010 | 5 comments

How do I change the default Quick Delivery Task settings.  I want to set them a certain way so I don't need to modify every single quick delivery task I setup.

There is no separte page to define global settings for the SWM tasks. You need to configure the settings for individual task.

The thought behind this can be:

When we say a task, it's just a single instance running at time.

Policy is something which is ongoing and that's why administrator has to define some global settings in order to achieve the compliance for all clients. However we can override the global settings anytime.

I don't buy that explanation for a minute...There should be a way to set defaults, for example I generally want a task to run whether or not a user is logged on, yet when you create a Quick Delivery task it defaults to only when a user is logged on.

Why would that be a default, if I'm delivering files to a PC, why do I care if they're logged on or not?

Create a template task with your default settings, copy it when you're wanting to make a new one, and go from there.
