Hello,  We are a midsized hospital and we have a lot of different labels.  I'm creating our patching labels and annoucments to go out to the house.  Is there a way i can select multiple labels at the same time when i'm trying to add them to the list.  Or do i really have to select each label and hit the drop down again to add the next label.

If you will need to select the same set of labels multiple times then you could create a smart label that automatically gets applied when a machine has one of the labels you are targetting. Otherwise if you're just setting up the patch schedule and this is a one time thing, then yes, you need to select each label one at a time.

This isn't obvious, but you *can* type type (or start typing) the label names, use the down arrow to move down to the label you want (assuming more than one initial match), hit Enter to add it to the list, and repeat to continue - all without using the mouse and clicking on the drop-down list, etc.  I've been doing this since I ran across it by accident one day (incdentally, while rebuilding patching groups) and have found it to be a great time saver.  The only caveat is that you need to know the names of your labels beforehand (the beginning, anyways) - otherwise the usual way is (slower but) more effective.

Have you thought about using Label Group?

  • I actually am using Label Groups, but i just tie another Label to that group. So when i go to select what labels i want that script or patch or software to run on i can't select the label group as their are no computers tied to that label. Just other labels are tied to it.
  • Just be aware that you can't use Label Groups for some screens, such as patch subscriptions and replication shares.
