Re: Upgrade metrics



Wouldnt a small popup like the advise of new updates be usefull for smoltGui ?

Something like:
- "New survey is available"
- you click in it, do the survey and send it with the profile, it would also be nice to have a checkbox to disable the announcements.

It keeps trying as best as it can until network comes up.  If all that
fails (say a reboot is required before network comes up) the monthly
smolt checkin will start up and we'll get them a month after they
install.  The monthly checkin will also let us do queries on 'active'
users say people that have submitted in the last 6 months or 12 months.

Well we do have smoltGui available and we're working on adding a rating
system for the entire profile as well as individual devices.  The
question is how to get people to run it.
