Schedule PC restart
There is the option to restart computer but none to schedule a restart (without using an automation script) it would be nice to have the ability to schedule a restart.

This would be good, however we have a workaround. Add a tag for 'reboot'. And create a task that reboots any devices with that tag, at 6am. Only issue is removing the tag. We are running a window schedule task that runs at startup. It is monitored, and automation triggers the removal of the tag.
This is a must for any RMM IMO
Not sure if this helps. But you can also send the shutdown command through the terminal with a couple of switches..
Shutdown -r will reboot the computer
Shutdown -r -f will forcefully reboot the computer (open applications that prevents a reboot will be overruled by the -f switch)
Shutdown -r -f -t 120 will forcefully reboot the computer after 120 seconds.
Just add the amount of seconds to the third command above to your liking (ie replace 120 with whatever amount of seconds you want), and the reboot will occur when that time has run out. If you want to abort for some reason, simply send Shutdown -a to do so.
A combination of these commands, a script and input/output variables in Pulseway might get the result you want, but I agree that managing this from the GUI would be way easier (and also preferable).
Not only Reboot but also shutdown, lock and logout would be amazing!
