Send messages to users

From Director, send a message to a user who is connected to one or more machines. For example, use this feature to send immediate notices about administrative actions such as impending desktop maintenance, machine logoffs and restarts, and profile resets.

To send a message to a user, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Monitor > Filters > Machines > All Machines.

  2. Select a machine to which you want to send a message and click Send Message.

  3. Type your message and click Send.

If the message is sent successfully, a confirmation message appears in Director. If the user’s machine is connected, the message appears there.

If the message is not sent successfully, an error message appears in Director. Troubleshoot the problem according to the error message. When you have finished, type the subject and message text again and click Try again.
