  1. The donation button will be there for ever.
  2. Dear Community, Almost two years ago we asked for donations and we have since used those funds to help bolster the community by investing in tools and technology to make it easier to collaborate, share content (like our forums) and also keep the servers and services that power our core infrastructure running. The breakdown of what that money was used for is below: - Server Hosting Fees - Email Services - Meeting Software for Geek Casts/Meetings - Forum Software and Support - Domain Costs - Trademark Registration We are once again asking for the community's help to keep the lights on. If you feel you have gained knowledge, assistance, or just fun times, please consider donating. We have added a donation button on the upper right of the forums, also accessible here CLICK HERE The admin staff want to add those who donate to a special donation group to mark your support but if you would prefer to keep the donation anonymous please donate here: CLICK HERE We are excited by how much we have grown and changed in the past year and a half, and hope the community continues to grow at its amazing pace. Thank you all for a being a part of this amazing journey. Don't forget to those going to IT Nation Explore in June that the entire admin staff (for the first time ever) will be all in attendance. That includes @Gavsto and @darrenwhite99 for those of you who owe adult beverages. Sincerely, Darren White (@DarrenWhite99), Gavin Stone (@Gavsto), Mendy Green (@MGreen), Josh Ishak (@josh.ishak), Martyn Keigher (@MartynKeigher), Kyle Spooner (@kspooner), Michael Priest (@Michael Priest)
  3. I would not utilize this as a plugin anymore. This was developed a long time ago and the Dashing backend has since been discontinued by Shopify. Smashing has replaced it but thats not by the same group. I would utilize Grafrana (also free) to do dashboards.
  4. This is not something this community will help you with as it gets into area's we don't want any responsibility with.
  5. I don't. I never got a script to rename working fully working on multiple machines.
  6. Its not labtech, its the machine. Make sure you have creds that are correct, you could also attempt to rename with CMD
  7. If this gets to a point where you are comfortable with it, let me know and we can give you permissions to the downloads section where you can upload this.
  8. That is for plugins made specifically by Shannon. At least that's what it has been i don't think its changed. We do not yet have a repo for plugins.
  9. For those who see this, please fill out this form. Thank you so much from the geekcast team! https://goo.gl/forms/EC2sPfxABaOZ8tfJ3
  10. We embark on journey to learn more about Malware and how it infects your systems! We also spend some time discussing points on social engineering and how to possibly fix some of these issues!
  11. 1) Don't learn SQL as it relates to LT. Learn it like you would anything else. Add it to LT after you know what you are doing. 2) LT's DB is badly designed. I'm not talking about MySQL. The table layouts and column names and what goes where and how a connects to b. I guess thats what you get when you don't have design requirements and 5,000 different people make changes 3) Monitors are SQL related, and I only mean related. If you plan to RAWSQL everything then it matches but LabTech likes to GUI everything so you have to learn how their GUI frontend will do what you want on the backend and sometimes it wont. 4) Be careful with scripting as that can have some unintended issues and loops. Just be comfortable prior to taking on LTScripts with SQL. https://www.w3schools.com/sql/ Start here. And experiment. SELECT is your friend, don't ever UPDATE/INSERT/DELETE without you knowing what is going to happen AND having backups.
  12. No, We really should get a section up for stuff like that. but Generally what you posted might get you some PM's anyway. I'd edit it to include what you are looking for.
  13. I've added this to the OP but just in case: LT12 Does not include the Dataview Creator. Keep a Lab of 11 so you can create DV's and export/import them.
  14. Thanks to everyone who joined us! We had a fantastic turn out and a fantastic engagement from the community. BIG thanks to our guests and I hope we can get another one of these done soon! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hHpF9bOo8HA
  15. ANOTHER LIVE STREAM YOU SAY? WHEN YOU SAY? WHO YOU SAY? We are on tonight for another live stream! Sorry for the late notice on this one community, but we wanted to make sure we had some special guests! (and boy are they special!) So for what we are dubbing currently the "GeekCast" is a podcast that will discuss all wide ranging things from what we do, how our thought processes work, how we accomplish task and other amazing things. Myself and Tyler (@hikato) will be running this for now and we will attempt to have guests on the show. Yes, this will be recorded and uploaded to our YouTube channel. We will also attempt to answer some questions from the twitch chat if possible and doesn't interrupt the show too much. GET ON WITH WHO'S GOING TO BE ON Fine...Fine.. At 7:30 PM Eastern Time, The GeekCast will host Darren White (@DarrenWhite99) and Chris Taylor (@CTaylor)! We look forward to you joining us on this momentous occasion at the same place (Twitch.tv/labtechgeek).
  16. Thanks to everyone who came out and joined us, we peaked at 50 concurrent viewers! Thats amazing for our first run through! Again, as stated in the video (posted below) we want to do this more. We want your help in doing so. Do you want to run a livestream? Do you want a specific topic covered? Would you watch a podcast with members of the community? Let us know here. Since some of you skipped most of the above, here is the video!
  17. Not right after, but they will be uploaded to our youtube channel.
  18. Good (Time Of Day) Everyone! I personally will be host a LTG livestream tonight at 6:30 PM Eastern Time. I will be covering how the REST API works in ConnectWise Manage utilizing Python 3.6. We will be gathering data and updating tickets and information from that data. I will go over the basics of how to interact with CWM so you can get the best out of your Manage Solution. We may even do some stuff with CWAutomate as well! So stop on by and learn something! https://go.twitch.tv/labtechgeek TIME CONVERSION:https://imgur.com/a/rv0Bc
  19. Version 1.0.0


    This will find a dead service. SC is not in the software tab, but is present in the services as "stopped". It will remove that service itself, and issue a reinstall command.
  20. I've looked into it, and we are fine from a Tax-Liability standpoint, with the amount we are looking to raise. PM me these "Deep Pocket" numbers you are looking at donating, as that might throw us into another category altogether. We will continue to accept donations to host contests and meetups along with some other idea's we are looking into which would require more than we are asking, just let me know on those numbers.
  21. Thanks for the links. However, since both Martyn and I are US based, I don't think those apply to us. I'll look into from the US standpoint. Thanks for the assistance!
  22. Honest Question. I'll add my part and when Martyn is next available, I'll point him here. There is no company formed for "LabTechGeek". Martyn and I are the only ones with access to the account with the donation funds. While in theory either of us could do what you mentioned, I don't think either of us have a desire, or need, to do such a thing. We both have worked hard on this community and to see it immediately fragment and become worthless overnight is not worth a years salary. Considering the time both of us, and the rest of the admin staff and community as a whole have spent during work hours and after work hours making things that everyone else can enjoy and profit from is just astounding. If you have any suggestions, feel free to PM me or Martyn or post here. There is a reason why we are posting our plans to spend the money (thanks all who've donated so far!) is because we don't want people to feel we are taking anything away from them. We have been looking at ways and things to improve the community and how its information is digested and consumed, and when looking deeper at what we wanted to do, it was either spend the weeks/months of personal time. Drop a good bit of personal cash, or ask the community for assistance. We want to be as open as possible, and if I didn't answer your question properly, please let me know.
  23. Dear LabTechGeek Community, The LTG Admin staff have been planning and working on improving our community. While evaluating our current situation, we discovered that the current software and systems we have in place are no longer serving our community adequately. As some may have noticed, there is now a donation button present on the home page of our lovely community. We are planning to update our forum software along with our hardware, and to do that requires additional funds. With our upgrades, we calculated $1,000 to function for one year. As we are also members of this community, we are going to be transparent with our purchases. I will outline our plans below: New Forum Software Includes built in Blog, Downloads Section, and others More secure system that’s not fully open source. New Hardware Cloud based system running in Digital Ocean No longer running at @MartynKeigher’s Mom’s Basement, considering Brexit the power costs are becoming problematic. Additional Community Rewards Any additional funds over the “Run for a Year” amount we plan to put back into the community as additional awards Such as Scripts, Plugins, Monitors, SQL Codes, ect. LTG Funded get together at ITN/AN Others as needed or better ideas (since we are a community) We are excited to bring these changes to the community for the better. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to reach out to Kyle Spooner (@kspooner) or Martyn Keigher (@martynkeigher). To donate, you may click on the "Donate" button on the left navigation on the main page of the Forums, or visit here: DONATE NOW Sincerely, Gavin Stone (@gavsto), Mendy Green (@Mendy Green), Tyler Blanchard (@hikato), Josh Ishak (@josh_stack), Martyn Keigher (@martynkeigher), Kyle Spooner (@kspooner), P.S. We are not changing the name. *EDIT* At this time we have reached our goal. Thanks to everyone who donated! You don't have to stop there. We plan to give any extra donations BACK to the community in the form of contests and get-togethers.
