Accounts View & Actions
The Accounts View is an aggregated view of all users who have established sessions on all of your managed machines, grouped by the user name.
This view displays all users currently active in your environment, along with statistics that enable the identification of top resource consumers and other user-related trends in your enterprise.

These actions are principally equivalent to their counterparts on the Sessions View. When invoked from the Accounts View, these actions are performed in parallel on all the instances of the selected accounts.
By selecting an account and executing the “Log off” action, you will terminate all user sessions established by that account on all managed machines. This logic applies to all management actions on the Accounts View. Therefore you should use the Accounts actions with care.
The actions can be invoked using either the Ribbon Bar “Actions” button, the context menu (right-click), or the Actions Panel.
When invoked from the Accounts view, the Registry Controller enables viewing and editing the HKEY_CURRENT_USER registry hive(s) corresponding to all the user sessions established using the selected user account. For more information about the Registry Controller, please see the Controllers Pane chapter.
Manage Programs and Updates
When invoked from the Sessions view, the Programs and Updates Controller enables viewing the programs installed for the selected account, across all your managed machines. For more information about the Programs and Updates Controller, please see the Controllers Pane chapter.
Remote Desktop Services (accounts actions category)
This action Issues a disconnect command for all user sessions established using the selected account. The sessions will then be handled according to your Remote Desktop Services configuration and Group Policy (left disconnected or logged off after a timeout). The end user is not notified of this action.
Log Off Session
This action invokes a log off process for all user sessions established using the selected account, closing all currently open programs. The end user is not notified of this action.
A Super-Message is a rich-text message that can include graphics, text formatting, and various display options. Super Messages can be configured to allow user feedback, to disappear automatically after a configured period of time, or to be displayed on top of other windows.
This action sends a standard “net send”-style message to all user sessions established using the selected account.
Group Policy (sessions actions category)
This action removes any group policy restrictions applied to the target user(s) environment, such as start menu restrictions, blocked locations in Windows Explorer, etc. This can be useful during support sessions in order to allow a user to perform actions normally blocked by Group Policy.
Since the user’s shell (explorer.exe) is restarted when this action is performed, the user will experience a brief disappearance of the Start Manu and taskbar as well as the closing of any open Windows Explorer windows.
Reapply Group Policy
Reapplies Group Policy restrictions previously removed by the “Kill User Group Policy” action. The user’s shell will be restarted again when this action is performed.
