1) As of today, you can't schedule / configure the backups from an endpoint through a central management solution. Soon we are launching a beta of Veeam Agent for Windows (new name for Veeam Endpoint Backup) that will have paid editions and will allow for central distribution / configuration etc through API's. Also, we will release the Veeam Availability Console (VAC) that will allow central management of these endpoints through a central console.
2) You can target your Endpoints to backup the data to a Veeam Backup & Replication repository. At that point, you will see the jobs appearing in Veeam Backup and Replication, and you will now success / failure on a daily basis (including email notifications if you want to) but as said, today no central configuration yet
Hope it helps
