Automatic Scripts

Not only do you have access scripts, but you can also automate them to run whenever you want. It’s actually brilliant. Because Scripts are often short and simple commands that automate processes and correct issues, you’ll want to schedule them ahead of time. So if there are tasks that you want to perform routinely, or on multiple systems, using a script along with automation is a smart and powerful option. This ensures that the actions you want to happen, will happen automatically, exactly when and where needed, and without you lifting a finger.


Shared Script Library

Get access to Atera’s comprehensive Shared Script Library with hundreds of useful scripts written by Atera and by the Atera community. The scripts can be used as a stand-alone, or through automation, to streamline your IT support processes and tasks. These Scripts can be cloned and modified so you have complete flexibility and absolute customization.

PowerShell is a super-power solution that combines command-line speed, the flexibility of scripting, and the force of a GUI-based admin tool, all in one, right inside of Atera. Microsoft developed Powershell for task automation and configuration management as an open-source project that can be installed on Windows, Mac OS, and Linux platforms. Powershell is a more powerful tool than the Command Prompt because it gives you more control over the Windows OS. It simplifies and automates tedious, repetitive tasks by creating scripts and combining multiple commands. Will you love it? Oh yes, yes you will.
