FAQs about the Package Library
How quickly are packages updated when a new version comes out?
Short answer, within 24 hours of a new release. Some applications make take longer if the application is a lower priority. For example, a Flash critical patch would have higher priority over a non-critical update of a lesser known application.
What Mode of PDQ Deploy Do I Need to use the Package Library?
Do You Test Your Deployment Packages?
Of course. What kind of shop do you think we run? However, we still recommend doing small scale deployments as environments can vary widely. While we’re very confident of our deployment packages, we can’t speak for the various application vendors. Make sure your computers are compatible with the latest updates before deploying.
Can I Make Changes/Customizations to Packages?
Go nuts! Just remember, any changes you make to current packages will not be reflected in new updates to packages. You can also create your own packages. You aren’t limited to what we have in the library.
