Alert for "not seen recently"

I use Datto RMM along with Webroot. I found that when a device has been decommissioned or reloaded my engineers do not deactivate the Webroot license which results in unnecessary license cost. I would like the ability to be able to receive an alert for all devices that have "not been seen recently". This way I can have it send the email alert to my helpdesk which will create a ticket within Autotask which will force my engineers to resolve the issue therefore saving me unnecessary license cost.

I've submitted a similar request for the same type of alert. It wouldn't hurt if we were voting on the same feature request so that Webroot knows users like us need these. Here's a link to the feature request if you want to vote on it. I voted on yours just in case.

Thanks Nic. I have voted on it accordingly. I have an NFR license of Avast and I just received an alert that one of my pc's has not been seen for more than 14 days. Avast is not as advanced as Webroot but it has this alert straight out of the box which makes this a very basic and obvious feature so I cant see why Webroot cannot see the need.

Thanks @rdocrat! I agree with you completely that this is a basic feature that should already be there. Let's hope that they get it added soon.

Hi thanks a lot for your suggestion. The not seen recently alert is something that we have in the backlog for a future release so please look out for updates on when this new alert will be available. Kind regards Bruce

@BruceR, please shake this up a little and move it up the list. Getting pressure from clients because we cannot possibly keep up with all of the devices we manage manually. We need some automated alerts we can create for this. I am also a Datto/RMM MSP.

The way this is now, it would take someone running the management console full time to keep track of or remove clients that are no longer functioning, replaced, etc., and like it was mentioned, customers are getting charged for licenses they no longer use!

Not sure if you have seen this happen before, but we just had a client that for some reason had over 30 devices in their realm that stopped reporting or connecting to your servers over the past few months (not all of the devices) on the same network. When this happens, the CPU usage goes up dramatically on the workstations with the WR agent trying to phone home., which causes other issues like programs freezing and webpages loading extremely slow. just to name a couple.

Hello @GaryB1212  Bruce is not with Webroot anymore so it’s best to contact Business support and let them know!
