  1. Some end users are security conscious, and would like to be notified the entire time a tech is logged in, instead of the window that disappears 20 seconds after the connection starts. Ideally, the notification would stay visible the entire duration of the remote session. TeamViewer has this feature in the bottom right corner, showing who is connected, and their TV ID. Simple click of the arrow minimizes the connection notification, but is still visible to show that a connection is ongoing.

    Alternatively, a notice that the tech is no longer connected might make the end user more comfortable.

  2. Currently the Atera agent on Windows is configured as a service that has a startup type of "Automatic (Delayed Start)". This means that after a reboot, it can take the agent more than 5min to show up as online in the console.

    I don't know about everyone else, but I like to work quickly and this is a real holdup. There are times that I'll be connected via Splashtop and it will quickly reconnect upon reboot. However, other times Windows may have pending updates to install, in which case Splashtop will disconnect because it times out waiting for the agent…

  3. You currently describe how to install by GPO. However GPO is old school and a lot of people are moving cloud only. How about providing instructions to install with current MDM platforms that people are using like Intune (Microsoft Endpoint Manager), Jumpcloud, JAMF etc.

  4. Use FIPS 140 compliant cryptographic algorithms for Agent Communications. Customers that have Compliancy requirements are unable to work with Atera Limiting our use case.

  5. We have a few users that are disabling or uninstalling Atera and Splashtop services.
    Do you have a script that will prevent them from doing this?
    Or at least password protection to prevent disable or uninstall.

  6. We would like to use the Chat using the agent rather than the chat/messaging used in Splashtop as its very basic. It would be great to be able to use this to engage with the end user before connecting to their device. Where permission can be granted to connect. I feel the chat feature should just be enabled, without the need for the end user to register it or accept the chat, nor need to activate using a token. More customization also, such as the length of time the chat stays open before disconnecting. The ability to disable uploading/adding files…

  9. We have recently being having issues where when servers reboot for Windows updates the Atera service doe snot start up in a timely manner, this results in constant alerts for the servers and unable to access them to resolve this issue.

    We set the startup type of the agent to "Automatic (Delayed Start)" however when the service is started again it appears to overwrite this setting and reverts to simply "Automatic" which means we are back to square one.

    I appreciate that other Atera users prefer the Automatic startup type for speed however for us it is simply not reliable…

  10. The device display shows the "Last Logged User". But this information does not clearly indicate if the user is still logged in. It is often stale or incorrect, especially if more than one user is logged in.

    Ideally, it should show the currently logged in user (the one that's active). And it should show their status (Active, Idle, etc...)

  11. Show hard drive active time in the metrics window. Helps to know that some process is using the disk drive at a high percentage and this might be slowing the computer for the end user.

  12. Have the ability to block certain websites from being loaded or block all but the whitelisted ones from the agent. IE Block Tiktok on corporate PC's.

  13. When running down the device list and doing manual reboots it would be really helpful having the Reboot Status known, if you manually already sent the Restart request (Clicked Restart) maybe the Reboot Needed can change to Restart Sent or something like that. Knowing if I already clicked restart on a specific machine is big!! Please Please Please!!! Thanks!!

  14. Currently, the Apple Mac agent is not uninstalled, when a device is deleted in Atera.
    Deleted devices keep popping up as new devices.
    This is a no-go, especially when a service contract ends. There has to be a simple solution for uninstalling Mac agents automatically .

  15. Hi Atera Team,

    Good Day!

    I would like to suggest you for atera agent version upgrade, while installing .msi file or Running CURL command it is removed older atera agent and installing new one most of the time only removed old version not installing new one. So i asked Atera support chat they suggest me to run Powershell command to remove Atera agent completely and run CURL command for new installation. I believe this is not a correct method , please make a new method once i run a CURL command or .MSI file it will upgrade old version to…

  16. Within Atera it asks that we define the business Public IP. What would be nice is to view if a user is working at the office or remotely when looking at devices under the customer name.
    One could have a simple reference point to the Public IP that is defined and display a "true statement" if the user is at the office or remotely.

  17. Have an option that can be selected to notify the technician when an agent is online. This would be handy for laptop users who have requested help but are in-between offices where WOL isn't an option but you would like to know when they do come back online.

    Currently I temporarily monitor the device then remove the monitoring once I have completed the work.

  18. I would very much like to setup dependent alerts. In one scenario I might have a WAN device setup as a primary monitor for a site, and all agents (Windows, Mac, TCP, SNMP, HTTP, and Generic) devices that are under that (ie: on the same network) would be dependent on that primary monitor.

    This way, when internet connectivity is lost I don't get flooded with alerts from all monitored devices when they're offline or can't be reached.

  19. Enable the ability to record Splashtop session. Splashtop already has it but Atera version that employees use, doesn't show the ability to record.

  20. There have been many instances where I need to reliably reboot a Windows endpoint into Safe Mode with Networking so that I can run scripts and/or remotely connect to it.

    I have a script that will do this now, but it would be excellent if Atera could build this into the agent so it isn't a guessing game. Rebooting into Safe Mode remotely can break my access if something goes wrong, and since 95% of what I do is entirely remote, having a reliable way to do this is really important.
