    • Exclude based on label

      Having the ability to use labels to exclude from, as well as, include systems in an MI etc. would be helpful.

        Over the coming releases, we will be revamping our targeting and scheduling pages. This a great example of where we will extend your ability to control what you are targeting and when it should be delivered.

      • Allow to test smart label on edit, and to add more criteria fields from the GUI. (as opp. to mySQL)

        When creating smart labels, you can only preview the smart label when creating it. After it's been created, modification is only possible by modifying the actual SQL query. (hardly user friendly).

        Also, in addition to editing a smart label, allowing additional criteria fields to be added within the GUI would help, otherwise, the user would really know how to write either MySQL RegEx or MySql queries (both of which aren't that easy for the casual user)

          • Ability to rename "name" field for assets

            Enable us to rename the "name" field for assets. For example, if I have a "Purchase Order" asset type, I want the "name" field to hold the PO number. I can instruct the users to use it in that way, but it would be much more intuitive if I could rename it. I understand that it's a mandatory index field, that's fine. let me rename it though so it's more appropriate for the asset type.

            • Consistency in OS Selection, Alert Messaging, and Scheduling

              Currently, there are several variations on common components in the K1000 admin interface that cause confusion & force workarounds. Some implementations of the OS selection force you to go in and revise all Custom Inventory Rules every time a OS update is released. Some instances of scheduling force the creation of multiple items (alerts & Wake on LAN events, for example) because they are needed multiple times in 1 week to match a patch schedule. These are the different implementations I have seen:

              1) OS Selection-
              Software Inventory: (also used for custom inventory rules) forces admins to select supported OS…

                We are investigating some changes to the UI that will ensure a more consistent experience across the K1 for each of these areas.

                Considering there are three different areas listed in this idea, we may look to implement these separately to focus on the most urgent needs. Based on the comments, the biggest issue here appears to be related to the OS selection for software inventory not allowing the ability to select all OS versions for Mac or Windows.

                These are all valid ideas that would improve consistency so these have all been added to the backlog but they are not currently planned for our next release. Please continue to vote if you’d like to see this prioritized for a future release.

              • Include scripts, distributions, WOL, and patch schedules as machine action options

                This way we could easily and quickly run a script, deploy a software package, or initiate a patch schedule (for just that machine) right from the machine list or machine detail page. Would be extremely handy, browser-agnostic, and save a lot of time.

                For example, if you have the two free Bomgar licenses and chose the hosted option you could initiate a Bomgar session with one or two clicks from the machine page without sending an e-mail message. Or if you are working on getting your patches up-to-date you could focus on one machine and kick off a patch schedule…

                • Team Viewer Machine Action

                  A TeamViewer Machine Action would be ideal. Another option is the ability to pass an asset field as a variable to the machine action. This would allow us to use ANY machine action as you could simply use an asset field to define the command line switch you wish to send.

                      • LDAP imported User info - Change Field Names

                        I would like to be able to rename the fields since i will be importing different info, e.g. i don't need "Budget Code" but i would like "Manager's Name". I could use the Custom fields, but I want to have the wording clearly define the data in the field.

                        • Add support for custom logos in other image formats.

                          The K1000 will only allow uploading of JPG files for the User Portal and Reports. JPG does not support transparency. Uploading a JPG with a white background looks very ugly.

                          • Better Alert Scheduling

                            Under Reports/Alerts, it would be nice if the scheduling were better. As it is now, you can only schedule an alert to run every day or once a week. It would be nice if you could schedule an alert bi-weekly, monthly, yearly, etc.

                            • Allow saving of common LDAP credentials to apply to many filters.

                              This would allow a central place to create and save LDAP credentials to then apply to things like smart labels. Currently with over 100+ LDAP Labels, if we need to change the password on the account it requires manually changing all 100+ labels.

                                  Now it is not possible to add an smart label for users.
                                  In the budget code, I have an number that is connected to the organisational structure. By using the seach function i can give a label to users based on a search on this budget code, but I have to relabel my users white every move inside the organisation. White smart user labels, I have to do this only once.

                                  • Merge computers

                                    Assets and Inventory tend to have duplicate computers for different reasons. Reports can tell you the name of the duplicates but the ability to Merge the computer by Host name, Mac Address or Bios SN would be helpful.

                                    • Change behavior of smart label after being created, to update the "View by" from existing DB.

                                      When a smart label is created, and even though testing it returns a close to accurate result directly from the database query, the "View By" drop down in the inventory for that smart label, doesn't start to get populated until the next agent checkin.
                                      Since the information is mostly in the DB, I would suggest that the View By would get populated from the existing database, and update the contents of the smart label as needed upon next agent checkin.

                                      (currently, if testing a smart label, after actually creating it, you would have to wait some 15 minutes at least…

                                        Ability to edit the custom fields in the user accounts. I would like to name the custom field in the user account (Settings > Users) on which attribute I associate to it. For example Custom 1 associated with attribute manager. I would like Custom 1 to specify Manager: instead of Custom 1:.

                                        • Make smart labels Contextual

                                          When building a smart label, queries are done independant of each other. So If I make a label that says look for This program and this version, it will check the full mahcine inventory for that software, and then check the full inventory for that version number. Instead, it should only check the version number of the software I selected. This cause issues when more then one program has the same version number as another you want to check for.
                                          Example. A machine has 32bit java version X and 64bit java version Y. I want to see if a machine…
