Tasks can be targeted to one or more clients. When you select an action to create a task, you are given an option to select the targets of the task.
The administrative console uses a queuing mechanism to gather the list of selected clients. The following options are available when targeting a task:
- Select individual clients in the list and select Add Clients to Queue to add the selected clients to the target clients queue. Add Clients to Queue will add any selected client on the current page to the target clients queue. Be sure to select Add Clients to Queue before paging forward or backward in the list of clients.
- Select all registered clients. The option to Add All Clients to Queue will target all registered clients. This will include any clients that register after the task is created.
- Select all clients in a filter. If you apply a filter to the clients list, the option to Add Filter to Queue can be selected. By selecting Add Filter to Queue, all clients that are included as part of the filter will be targeted. The members of the filter are updated dynamically when the filter is synchronized. See Filter synchronization for more information.
