What's new in Management Center?
Management Database Scheduled Computer Maintenance
In the 10.1 FR4 release we introduced a Maintenance section to the console. This facilitates the creation, modification and status toggling of event housekeeping jobs from the Management console. In the 2018.3 release of the Management Center this maintenance functionality has been extended to allow for the scheduled removal of machines, to simplify ongoing administration.
For more information, see Maintenance
Deployment Group Computer Count
Prior to 10.1 FR2 it was possible from within the Management console to easily see the number of machines per Deployment Group. Following feedback from existing customers, we have reinstated this count allowing an administrator to see how many machines are present within a Deployment Group, for example, when filtering.
For more information, see Deployment Group Computers.
Version 10.1 FR4
New UI for Scheduled Event Maintenance in Home > [Server] > Maintenance.
Create maintenance schedules to remove events from the Management Server database using a range of scheduling options.
Clone Deployment Group

Scheduled Event Maintenance
New functionality to allow the administrator to schedule event maintenance on the Management Server database.
The functionality is availale as Management Server Powershell cmdlets providing the administrators the ability to target different selection of events and alerts on specified days and times based on criteria such as age of events, event ID or deployment group.
Version 10.1 FR2
Product rebrand to User Workspace Manager (UWM)
The Management Center branding has been updated to reflect that it is now part of the User Workspace Manager (UWM) suite of products, formerly known as DesktopNow.
There may still be references to DesktopNow in certain components, for example in the Registry or Windows Services.
New functionality to allow the administrator to remove events and related alerts from the Management Server database. This allows easier management of the size of the database to ensure a high level of console performance.
