Lenovo Dock Manager : Suggestions

2021-02-22, 22:08 PM

Couple suggestions:
1)  The uninstall command should be /VERYSILENT (tested and it works).  Documentation says "/SILENT" but that displays a pop-up and does not run silently.
2)  Would be nice to hide the system tray icon without stopping the service.  
3)  Would be nice to be able to have neither the service, nor the application running to query the Dock data.  Currently you need the service running and dockmgr.exe open to query Dock data through WMI.
4)  A PowerShell module that allows us to query the dock data would be just as good.
5)  Would be nice to be able to have command line options to run dock updates when we want, not on a schedule like your current program implies is the norm. (like tvsu.exe)
6)  Why not just roll this product up into TVSU?  If a dock is detected, update drivers and firmware for it as well.
7)  The SerialNumber field is empty/not working.

Hello @tanielson

 

Thanks for posting your thoughts which I will pass on to the software team who develop maintain the tool for their consideration. I'm unfortunately not in a position to say your suggestions will be implemented or whether or not they already are but they strike me as useful to have.

That's fine, they are just suggestions.  Who am I?  The boss?! :)
