You can select one or more client devices in the list of devices, and then launch a previously created task for them. This allows you to run tasks created earlier for a specific set of devices.

This changes the devices to which the task was assigned to the list of devices that you select when you run the task.

To start a task for selected devices:

  1. In the main menu, go to Assets (Devices) → Managed devices. The list of managed devices is displayed.

In the list of managed devices, use the check boxes to select the devices to run the task for them. You can use the search and filter functions to find the devices you're looking for.

  1. Click the Run task button, and then select Apply existing task.

    The list of the existing tasks is displayed.
  2. The selected devices are displayed above the task list. If necessary, you can remove a device from this list. You can delete all but one device.
  3. Select the desired task in the list. You can use the search box above the list to search for the desired task by name. Only one task can be selected.
  4. Click Save and start task.

The selected task is immediately started for the selected devices. The scheduled start settings in the task are not changed.
