  9. Click Propagate to apply the default localization properties to any existing Customers or Sites within the Service Organization.
  10. Click the Options tab and set the default setting for automatically disconnecting agent-monitored laptop and workstation computers if they shut down or if they do not communicate with the N-able N-central server within a specified time frame.
  11. The option works in conjunction with the Unscheduled Downtime option for a device. This ensures that when a device is turned off, for example at the end of the day, the Agent Status, as well as all services on the device, changes to a disconnected state and does not inundate the technician with notifications that all the services went offline. To change the time before changing to a disconnected state, see Agent Status service.
