Automator and Remote Desktop 3


As you may know, the US online Apple Store went down briefly this morning, and returned to reveal Apple Remote Desktop 3 (RD3). As we pointed out, this is a major update with a slew of changes. Automator World is pointing to a page at Apple's site that details the Automator-specific changes to RD3. Available actions include:

  • Choose remote computer (sort of a no-brainer)
  • Copy items to computers (nice)
  • Execute new UNIX task (again, nice)
  • Restart computers
  • Send text message
There's more, of course. I've already begged the finance department at my day job to let me order this. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
