Every IT administrator would have to run through a handful of administrative tasks, which are repetitive. Many of those tasks needs to be performed every single day or at regular intervals. Desktop Central provides you with pre-defined configurations, which help you to perform these tasks. When the tasks are not straight forward, or unique, then you will have to use custom scripts to execute them. Scripts can be in form of a batch file, a command file, or a windows script host file. Desktop Central supports deploying scripts to computers running Windows and Mac operating system. The following script formats supported by Desktop Central: .vbs, .js, .php, ReXX, .bat, .cmd, .msi, . jse, .exe, .vbe, .wsf, .wsc, .wsh, .reg, .sh, .scpt, .pl and .py
There are many commonly used scripts, across various enterprises. Desktop Central, based on the customer interaction and support feedback has built a repository of scripts in form of templates. You can view the list of script templates from here : Desktop Central web console -> Configurations -> Script Repository -> Templates. You can choose the template based on your requirement and click on it, to add the script to your local script repository. These templates are updated periodically.
