Send messages to users

Jun 21, 2013
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 log-offs and restarts, and profile resets.
  1. In the Activity Manager view, select the user and click Details.
  2. In the User Details view, locate the Session Details panel and click Send Message.
  3. Type your message information in the Subject and Message fields, 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.
