On December 7, 2021, in Projects, by Cubert aka (Cube Dweller)

It has been an especially good year for Habitat, our tool box for ConnectWise Automate. Habitat has seen some significant improvements and additions over this last year including the following new tools.

Habitat Application Manager

The new Habitat Application Manager is a deployment and update manager for third party applications running on Windows agents inside ConnectWise Automate. This allows the MSP the ability to install application if needed but better yet Habitat auto detects what applications maybe installed on the end agent and matches up packages in it’s approved applications list with installed software to update and manage the application moving forward. This tool replaces the “3rd Party Application” tool in Habitat.

Habitat OneDrive SYNC Status Tool

The new Habitat OneDrive tool collects and displays Agents business or personal OneDrive statuses. This tool is used to collect and monitor the the status of personal and business OneDrive directory syncs directly inside Automate.

Microsoft Safety Scanner Tool

The Microsoft Safety Scanner, formerly Emergency Response Tool is now fully integrated into Habitat for ConnectWise Automate plug-in. Microsoft Safety Scanner is a scan tool designed to find and remove malware from Windows computers. Simply Run scans to find malware and try to reverse changes made by identified threats.

Safety Scanner helps remove malicious software from computers running Windows 10, Windows 10 Tech Preview, Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Server 2019, Windows Server 2016, Windows Server Tech Preview, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2008 R2, or Windows Server 2008.
