For those trying out Datto RMM using a 14-day free trial, the resources below are designed to ensure a successful and thorough testing of the software to meet your requirements. Your engagement will also be supported by your Account Manager, who will provide appropriate resources as necessary.
Before you begin
We suggest deploying Datto RMM within a test environment. Your Account Manager can cover bulk deployment in more detail if there is a need to do so upon completion of your Success Criteria.
We ask that you define and document your Success Criteria as delineated below. These are the key components of testing that will allow you to determine if Datto RMM is the right solution for you. Consider examining your existing technician workflows to aid in establishing your Success Criteria.
Some suggestions to get you started are included below. We also encourage you to join our Solutions Engineers for a Jumpstart webinar, in which you will learn basic platform configuration and get your trial off to a strong start. We host these sessions weekly; simply select the day that works best for you.
|Device security/patching||Check for and install missing critical patches on Windows 10 devices. Use a Windows Update policy to control patching to Datto RMM, and then configure a Patch Management policy for relevant devices.|
|Ease of deployment||Download and install an Agent on a new device. There are various methods available to add devices in Datto RMM, including Network Discovery, Active Directory deployment, and email.|
|Visibility||Datto RMM automatically audits devices. View and check audit data against your environment. Check device activity for remote control, jobs, patch installations, and so forth.|
|Device & data organization||Configure new sites and custom filters and groups to target devices based on software, hardware, and other device attributes.|
|Software deployment||Deploy a component, either from the ComStore or one that you have created using jobs. Use a filter (for example, No Java, Win 7) to target the necessary devices.|
|Software Management policy||Configure third-party software application updates and define when those updates should be installed.|
|Support||Initiate a remote takeover session. In addition to using Web Remote/VNC/RDP/Splashtop, use the built-in tools such as command shell, Windows services, and task manager to carry out tasks behind the scenes on remote devices.||Web Remote|
|Monitoring||Set up monitors at the global and site level. Target relevant devices using filters and groups. Deploy a component as an auto-response where relevant to auto-resolve alerts.|
|Reporting||Schedule reports summarizing activity, asset information (for example, the Detailed Computer Audit report) and health (for example, the Executive Summary report).|
|User and security||Create a new security level and assign it to users.|
