When publishing Software to the software portal every command-line (Install, Uninstall and Repair) creates an icon in the Software Portal.
For example, if you have a Software 7-Zip 18.05 and you are publishing three command-lines (Install, Uninstall and Repair) you end up with three icons.
It is not clear which icon represents Install, Uninstall and Repair. Only when you do a “Mouse-over” it will show you which command-line will be used.
It is confusing for the End-User to see three icons and don´t know how to proceed….
The second thing is – It is getting more and more confusing if you have published 100 Softwarepackages with an Install, Uninstall and Repair command-line – you end up with 300 Icons in the Software Portal.
Instead of displaying three icons, please only show one Icon for a published Software and on “Mouse-over” show the user if a Install, Uninstall and/or Repair Command-line is published for the Software.
Allow the user to select the command-line option. Only show if more than one command-line is published.
Another great Enhancement would be that the users only see the options that they actually can choose for example:
- If a software is not installed on a Computer – it does not make sense to show the uninstall option
- If a software is not installed on a Computer – it does not make sense to show the repair option
- If a software is already installed on a Computer – it does not make sense to show the install option
It would be cool if we can leverage Inventorydata to display the options dynamically on each software icon.
