function Get-RDPUserReport {
        Function to extend the use of the QUser Command.

		This function can be used to extend the use of the QUser Command in order to levy some addition automation. This command will query the Server/s specified and output the session details ( ID, SessionName,LogonTime, IdleTime, Username, State, ServerName).

		These details are output as objects and can therefore be manipulated to use with additional commands.

		Get-RDPUserReport -ComputerName DANTOOINE

		ID          : 2
		SessionName : rdp-tcp#7
		LogonTime   : 25/03/2020 01:49
		IdleTime    : 2:41
		Username    : administrator
		State       : Active
		ServerName  : DANTOOINE

        Get-RDPUserReport -ComputerName DANTOOINE | Sort-Object IdleTime | Format-Table -AutoSize

		ID SessionName LogonTime        IdleTime Username      State  ServerName
		-- ----------- ---------        -------- --------      -----  ----------
