The closest I've come to something like this is sending Message: along with whatever text I want to delivered. There's a couple of problems with this:
- It only works with scripts as far as I know
- It's sort of a kludge since the text that you pass along to Message: appears in the green info box under Component Status. It will appear immediately after the status of the component.
You can get an idea from the second screenshot in Re: Windows Script Monitor - Return/Display message output (in alerts/email/etc).
Clever way of doing it but that would be very hard to report on?
I think that the end users I have would need something slighly more visible :(
I'll keep it in mind for emergencies though! :)
