Power on after deployment missing in web client

Hi All

We are migrating from Vmware vsphere desktop client (esxi 5.5) to vmware vsphere web client (esxi 6.5, vcenter server 6.5).I was able to successfully deploy an ova file using the web client. But what i found is that one feature which was present in the desktop client is missing in the web client.In desktop client there is a check box "Power on after deployment" under "Ready to complete" in the "Deploy OVF Template " wizard. But i could not find the same in the web client screen.Without this option most of time we forget to power on the virtual machine.Attached is the screen shot in the desktop client.Please let me know if we can have some equivalent settings in the web client by which one need not explicitly go and power on the virtual machine after successful deployment

I'm afraid not. I miss that option as well, but there's not a way to "add checkbox here" to the web client. You could script the deployment with PowerCLI and then automate the deployment process, but that's about it.
