Coming Soon to MSP RMM… Run Single Checks on Demand, Site Concentrator Update

We’re pleased to announce a couple of feature enhancements in the first MSP Remote Monitoring & Management release of the new year, due out in the next few days. In this update, we’re adding the ability for you to run single checks on demand, instead of having to always run all checks, and we also have an improvement to Site Concentrator so you can see if there’s an issue with upstream proxies.

In addition, there’s a Windows Agent update with a new Take Control ‘host’ module that uses TeamViewer’s latest v12 version. This follows on from the recent update to the ‘viewer’ module, and means Take Control is now running on TeamViewer’s very latest version. We’re currently working on an equivalent update to the Mac Agent and will release this as soon as it’s ready to go.

All the details…

Run a Single Check
Here’s a screenshot of the new single Run Check option. It means you can inspect a specific bit of a system without having to run all the 24×7 and Daily Safety Checks, making it faster and less resource intensive. You can run just one check or use CTRL+Click or Shift+Click to select a few specific checks and run those.


See Upstream Proxy Issues

In this release we’re also introducing the ability for our Dashboard to detect when Agents cannot upload due to upstream proxy issues. This enhancement to Site Concentrator shows up in the Summary Tab of a device, here’s a little screenshot to show you an example…

Technical Support – Telephone connectivity issues – RESOLVED

We have now received confirmation from our Telephony engineers that full phone service has been restored. Global MSP Technical Support is now able to receive telephone calls as usual.

The issue was identified as a connectivity issue, where the connection failover had not functioned as intended, causing a temporary inbound call outage which was mentioned in this previous post.

Thank you for your patience, and please accept our apologies for any inconvenience which this may have caused.

Technical Support – Telephone connectivity issues

We are currently experiencing a phone system outage that is impacting inbound calls to our Technical Support service.  At this time it is not possible to connect to Technical Support via the phone.

We are working on this with the highest priority and will post a status update as soon as we know more.
In the meantime, if you need to get in touch, you can still use the Live Chat, or the Customer Support Portal to log a case. As the phones are presently unavailable, there may be a slightly greater hold time with Live Chat than usual.
