Updates marked as 'needed' when already installed
Thanks for this great app, it is really useful.
Can I ask you how you check for updates to be available on a machine ? only on the SCCM server or by checking the client machine too ?
I asked that because I tried, as a test, to patch a machine from the app; to do this I looked at the tab Available Updates and saw 4 updates, I then click on Install All and waited.
Everything was running fine until one of the update status was 'requires restart' (in Software Center), for the other updates the status was installed.
The update that needed a restart was always marked as 'available' in Available Updates in the Remote Manage App.
Isn't it possible to change the behaviour of the detection to remove the installed updates requiring a reboot and also add in the Actions & Tools / Available Updates / Installed Updates a line showing that a reboot is needed due to updates installation ?
As a small request, could you please add a refresh button on the Other tab ?
I ask that because the reboot pending status in the Agent Information is never updated unless you reconnect to the machine. So even after the installation of multiple updates (needing a reboot), the reboot status always stays on false.
