Anyone have a script to email users post patch installs? Shavlik doesn't do this well. There appears to be no way of sending users automated emails at the end of each patch cycle. The built in canned reports aren't suited for this... would be preferable to have a customizable notification template . I opened a support ticket last week, and was informed Shavlik Protect has no way to handle custom email notifications!
The Deployment template only offers specific canned reports (doesn't allow the tech to customize the report or message body / subject
I've asked around and I couldn't come up with solution in the current version of Protect. The only method of sending emails are through scan, deployments, manually or from scheduled reports. Hopefully someone else will chime in with ideas.
