Working with Tools

Tools are popular sys admin utilities (built-in and non PDQ) that can be run remotely against individual computers, or in some cases, against groups of computers. In addition to the default tools included with PDQ Inventory, you can create your own tools to integrate your favorite sys admin utilities with PDQ Inventory (Enterprise mode is required to create and edit Tools) or import tools from the Tools Library (Enterprise mode required). The default tools allow you to inspect certain elements of a computer, manage a computer, deploy a package using PDQ Deploy, remotely connect to a computer, or wake a machine that is Wake-on-LAN capable (Enterprise mode required for distributed Wake-on-LAN).
