My Account - Devices
« on: September 27, 2012, 12:15:22 PM »
I'm wondering if it is possible to view the program and definition update status of the computers I have linked to my Avast account, without having to click the "View Details" button and open a new window.

Why? I have been linking my client's computers to a "monitoring" account that I have created. That way, I can verify that my clients have the latest Avast updates installed. I can readily see if they are secured, but unfortunately, I have to open each and every device's View Details to determine the update status.
Is there any way to add the update status to the main "Devices" page?

Thank you.

You have posted this in "avast! Free/Pro/Suite", it looks to me you either posted it in the wrong forum or you should get a network version of avast!

This isn't within a network. I'm simply being creative with the unique tools that Avast supplies within their AV.
For each home and business customer's computer where I have Avast installed, I connect them to an Avast account that I have created.
This way, I can simply check on the status of all of my customers Avast installs. It shows the paid and free installs. It shows the current version, and if the latest update has been applied, among other things in regards to their Avast install.
This way, I can contact a customer before their subscription runs out, or to make sure they apply the latest update, etc.

The Avast account opens within a web browser, and right now, there is a "summary" page that lists all of the computers connected to the account. A quick glance down the page shows the current status of every Avast install, but, it does not show whether Avast is updated to the latest version. I have to open a "details" screen on each and every account for that information.
It would be great if the "latest updated" version info was also on the summary page.

Since each customer knows from the UI when there is a new program update available, that isn't something that's needed.
I don't think that's what the Avast's My Account was intended for even though I give you credit for your ingenuity.  :)
