About Scheduling Software Update Installation Advertisements

The best schedule for running software update installation advertisements will vary depending on many factors. These include:

  • The amount of user interaction you are allowing.

  • The criticality of the updates contained in the package.

  • Whether the client computers are running the Advanced Client or the Legacy Client.

Consider the following principles when setting the advertisement schedule:

  • When advertising updates to computers that are running the Advanced Client, you can set the advertisement to recur less frequently (for example, once a day) and use the persistent notification feature.

  • When advertising updates to computers that are running the Legacy Client, set the advertisement to recur more frequently to ensure that end users can see and respond to the notifications.
