Since we have to kick all employees out of TOM to run the updates, I can only do it after hours. I have 30+ office employees running TOM at any one time. It would take me at least 30 minutes to get everyone out, run the update on 4 companies, then set up and give out the new admin password so each person can run the update on his/her system. I can’t stop the company during office hours for that long every time a new update comes out. I typically wait a week or two after an update is released before I run it as well. The employees are not supposed to run an update until I tell them to do so.
Last week, we updated to 21.1.2000. The next day 21.1.2800 was released. This week I’ve had 4 employees try to run the newest one including an owner. Most of the time, I can just copy the old version everyone else is using to the computer trying to run the newest update. Sometimes, I have to uninstall and reinstall TOM for it to work. It’s a real headache.
It would be helpful to lock the update function until I want the employees to use it. I would unlock it for a day or two then lock it again until the next one.
