Hi, i think there is no automated update when the WU is 100% done. Some team member complained about thiss cause they are abusing their family pc's, :D, and they have to reach out and do a click on the update to see some results done.

Is there a way to automate this?

Kindest Regards

Workunits are batched together in uploads to make server communications less stressful. This will happen automatically, all you have to do is let BOINC do its job.

It doesn't need to be done after every single work unit completes. BOINC will automatically update every so often, so nothing needs to be done.

Reporting work happens at the first of:

1) 24 hours before deadline
2) COnnect Every X before deadline.
3) Immediately if it is later than either 1 or 2 upon completion of the task.
4) 24 hours after completion.
5) On a trickle up message (CPDN only, I believe).
6) On a trickle down request (not used by any project?)
7) On a server scheduled connection. Used, but I am not certain by which project.
8) On a request for new work.
9) When the user pushes the update button.
