Enhancements for Checklists

Save time diagnosing issues with Checklists by reducing the number of checklists agents need to navigate through. Now administrators can configure checklists by OS platform and only display those relevant to the OS of the device in question.

Additionally, make checklists easier to read with custom display labels for properties, and display them in the custom documentation section when the user clicks for more information.

These enhancements are available for checklists both in Device View and Amplify. The Amplify browser extension will be updated following the rollout of 2024.2 in all regions. Until then, Amplify will continue to show all checklists for all OS platforms.

Amplify is subject to an additional license. Contact your Nexthink representative for more information. 

Refer to the Checklists management documentation for more information.

Amplify: Automatically update ITSM tickets

Increase visibility by automatically updating ITSM ticket notes with the outcome of remediations when you execute remote actions using Amplify. Now, Amplify actions from ServiceNow are automatically written as notes into the source ticket to allow visibility into who did what and when, in the context of the full ticket history.

The Amplify browser extension will be updated following the rollout of 2024.2 in all regions.
