+1 UI needs a massive revamp.

 

Please for the love of good choose a better 'default starting point' of the tab/cursor when you click connect - the cursor/prompt should start you in the 'username' section or password if remembered. In some versions (I think it was OSX) it starts on the 'cancel' button...

+1 for this.  It does look like a something I would have coded in 1998.  if they can pointlessly change the style of the management interface in 7.1.0, they can update the ui for GP.

+1.  This issue has slowed enthusiasm for a larger rollout at our institution.

Also, Why is it everytime I login to my Windows 10 computer Global Protect decides to pop up with a notification from the system tray telling me I'm disconnected. I know I'm disconnected, I just logged into my computer and didn't attempt to connect to the VPN (I'm using on-demand mode).

Thanks for all the feedback. Please check out the beta 2 drop of GlobalProtect 3.1.0 app which has few UI functional enhancements. Please sign-up for beta (contact your account team on how to sign up for beta access) to get access to release notes and the beta software

This can be configured in App configuration. I.e configure the notifications to be turned on or off.

The GP UI definetely need some improvements. One thing that frustrates me the most about this is the need of manually changing portal configurations when I need to connect to different portals. If you work providing support for different customers, a feature that enables you to have different portal configurations previously defined and connect to them by just choosing which one you want would be great.

Hi,

 

Just going to chime in here too. I've just posted a reply on melliot's thread about global protect profiles - I made a Windows app that will let you switch between portals.

 

I haven't tested it on v3 yet (going to grab the client shortly), but it works well on 2.x branch. I'm going to be putting some updates in to it over the weekend for some command line switches, will check/verify/fix so it works with v3, then post a new thread with details.

 

Post here:

Cheers

 

EDIT:

 

Can confirm it works with the 3.x client, I just tested it on 3.0.2-9 and it works fine
