    We are looking at changes to help avoid large numbers of reboot related alerts. This work is not yet planned, so I can’t provide a date, but the proposed implementation would be as below.

    For urgent reboots, e.g. to complete removal of a competitor product being replaced, users will see a notification immediately.

    For non-urgent reboots (i.e. where protection is maintained), users will not see a reboot for the first 2 weeks (typically they will reboot in this time anyway, e.g. for windows updates).

    If not rebooted for 2 weeks they will see a notification they can dismiss.

    The reboot notification be persistent on an endpoint; it will require acknowledgement by the user to clear it. We would expect to have a registry key to be able to prevent this behaviour for systems like shop tills, advertising displays and so on.

    If a further week goes by without a reboot…

    THis is a requirement! Give the option for these alerts. Allow it to be turned on globally or via policy and allow the frequency to be selected, such as once a day, every 2 days, 3 days, or whatever, 30 min, 10min 2 hours, etc.

    This is a required feature for us. Please simply make a global option to enable reboot reminders for Sophos clients. This is by far the number one thing that clogs up our sophos central alerts is clients that have not rebooted after updates. Even after telling users to reboot, they still don't, because the forget. If sophos would simply alert the user to reboot everyday until they reboot this would be nice. But of course make it an option, as I'm sure some customers wouldn't want the pop ups.
