Hi,

an interesting feature for the server would be to be able to display the battery level of the clients (under Client Resources).

BR,
Michael

Michael,

This feature is implemented now.
It will be available in the next server update (should be pushed tomorrow).


Thanks

Dont want to introduce another column but maybe we could use '+' character as an indicator for charging and '-' for discharging?

Sample for charging would be:
+33%

What do you think?

The minus might be confusing because it might be mistaken as kind of 'negative battery level', which doesn't exist.
Think the plus sign is good enough.

I think you are right - will go with '+' only (visible when battery is charging).

Thanks
