+1 for this as well. All of my customers have a hard time when it comes to using the current menu. Although I'm not sure about
"4 button panel" (god help me, like win8 metro), with big text labelled "Clean Me", "Update Me", "Scan Me", "Send for help"
I would like to see something similar however. Like the above idea, a simple interface handful of buttons, nothing fancy.
Clean Me - basic cleaning (excluding: history, clnmgr, and a defrag)
Update Me - basic updates (Ninite Installer for Java, .Net, Reader, and an updater for Adobe Flash, then have it switch once finished to running Windows Updates)
Ask for help - your basic email support (with a personal profile pic of yourself perhaps? So they get a visual representation of who they're emailing.)
Connect - Configured how you want it, your .exe, or a url w/e (I'm still looking for a way to integrate Logmein rescue's form api so the customer can put in their name, phone, and email then connect...can you include a html/css form?)
Extra Features - a separate GUI opens up (or a dashboard that starts always hidden, below the main GUI) that displays added features like; System Restore, Run Custom Apps, Fix Internet, Fix Printer Spooler, Reboot into Safemode w/Networking, etc.
A Schedule Now button - Allows the customer to hop onto their PC and schedule dSS on their own, immediately creating a scheduled event for that time, on that day, every week, etc. Alternatively present a clickable menu for Daily, Weekly, Monthly, and Hours of the day so they don't have to type it in.
A Get Report button - Run a report with your business logo, custom html/css branding etc, with an option to print to the default printer...output to html so it opens in their browser.
At the top, include rectangular space for a Banner/Logo that clicks through to your website.
Add Social Media Links via html/css
Add a scrolling message on a bottom bar, like in d7, that we can customize and update via dCloud Console
