and receive an email notification when an update is available of the installed products.

(Now once in a while it’s necessary to start the SIM and see if there are updates available or subscribe to a product on kb.altiris.com)

of available updates is always a positive aspect. The only drawback I see here is that SIM might have to be launched, or open to receive such notifications. An automation policy, similar to what existed in NS6 would be useful as well.

Really good idea! Did you open a feature request for that? Go for it!

That is a very usefull idea. yes
It was perfect in the NS 6.0 console. That way customers could see that there were updates available.

Yes, please. We just installed at the beginning of the year and didn't pay attention to it for a while. We got behind in our updates. An email reminder would be nice.
