Question:
I use signed PowerShell scripts in Deploy, which works great since the wrapper script is signed. Is there also a way to use PowerShell commands in Inventory tools when using the "AllSigned" setting? :29

Question: How can I remove a package from the auto downloads? If I once downloaded a package but no longer need/push It out, how can I stop it downloading the latest version every time there’s an update?

Question:
What's the best way to create a dynamic collection of a specific version of software, so that we can link a package to the collection?
5:27

Question:
Is there a way to create a package in Deploy that runs the Uninstall CMD from Inventory, using the name of the application from the Applications listing? In the case that an application has a different Uninstall CMD from each version. Curious for use on an in-house application.

Question:
Any chance of adding an agent for remote computers without VPN?

Question:
Couple of quickie questions: 1) On collections in Inventory, is there an easy way to test for BLANK-FIELDS, ie, PCs that have NO IP Address in that field? I cannot seem to get that to work. 2) Can you give an example of using an "OR" statement in collections?

Question:
In a PDQ Deploy package, is there a way to create a "scan step"? It would be very useful for those machines that were woke using WOL and then shut down. In those cases, there's no time to scan after deployment because the computer is shutting down as last step (package scan is triggered when the last step finishes right?) Thanks.

Question:
Is it possible to create a collection in Inventory to find if a domain user or group is a member of a specific local user group? i.e., if a domain IT support group is a member of the local remote desktop users group?
23:13

Question:
Can you make a single report showing multiple counts? Ie. BitLocker laptops, nonbitlockered laptops, BitLocker desktops, nonbitlockered desktops.
26:11

Question:
Is there a way to see dependent objects for PDQ collections? Specifically to see which Deploy schedules are attached to a specific collection, but potentially other info.
27:32

Question:
What's the best way to find PCs with IPv6 enabled (or have an IPv6 address)? IPv6 is disabled in our images, servers, and all network hardware but recently we started seeing clients with it enabled (breaking file shares among other problems).

Question:
Is there a way that I can set up a deployment to turn off SNMP in PDQ Deploy?

Question:
With the latest version of Citrix Receiver, I cannot seem to get the parameters to pass thru on install. It will not install silently, nor will it apply the storefront. The only way I can get it to install is interactive. Suggestions all knowing PDQ gods?

Question:
Can we create a collection based on a particular version of Windows 10?
