  1. Change format of "Updated Patches Available" report to show content inline (HTML)

    Since the upgrade to 6.3 the "Updated Patches Available" report mails no longer list the patches inline. Instead, the email contains a zip file, and this is very annoying.

      • automatically save scheduled reports to a network share

        Please add the ability to schedule automated reports that can be saved in CSV format (optionally TXT and HTML as well) to a network share. Currently, we can automatically email reports. it would very helpful to have reports saved to a network share so we may automate processes that act upon information on these reports.

        • Add charts to reporting.

          Need the ability to create reports that give a general overview of the results in the form of a few simple charts (bar, pie, ect). This would be well placed as an option for the only thing reported or as a header to the list of machines being reported on.

          • Add label names to the report wizard

            When creating reports, I frequently want to use labels to gather data about machines which only exist at a certain location(s) in our enterprise. Currently this is a huge pain, requiring manual SQL editing because there is no option to filter to machines which have a certain label otherwise.

              • Variable Field for Reports

                Allow it to be possible to have a report that is based on an end user's specific criteria so that the report doesn't have to be edited by KACE admin everytime an end user needs a report ran.

                      • Change the reporter email address

                        Change the reporter eMail Address

                        We want to have the possibility to change the sender address for the reports. We want to minimize unneeded email traffic (for example when somebody is on vacation there will be automatically generated an absence assistant message - and of course the email address isn't a valid one so the postmaster got's error messages)

                        BR & thx

                        • Driver Reporting

                          Driver reporting on a system would be very useful. Being able to identify which drivers are loaded on a system, their versions, and which are actively in use vs. all drivers present on a system as a starting point would be greatly appreciated. If possible, I see this being added as a link within a Machine view in the K1000 under Inventory -> Computers, similar to Installed Programs, Discovered Software etc.

                          • Allow custom SQL notifications to display more (or less) than the 4 default columns

                            When doing a custom SQL query in a notification, no matter what columns the query specifies, the K1000 only sends data for 4 columns:

                            Computer Name, System Description, MAC Address, and IP Address

                            Test with the query below:

                            SELECT MACHINE.NAME AS SYSTEM_NAME, MACHINE.USER_FULLNAME as USER_NAME, LAST_SYNC as CHECKIN_TIME FROM MACHINE WHERE (((TIMESTAMP(LAST_SYNC) > NOW() OR TIMESTAMP(LAST_SYNC) <= DATE_SUB(NOW(),INTERVAL 18 DAY))))

                            • Allow Kace admin to schedule notifications for a specific time

                              Within reporting I have a number of notifications that run daily or weekly. It appears that the "Next Run" time is based on when that notification is created. For example a notification is created to run daily at 3 PM, it will continue to run at 3 PM from then on. I would like to see a "time of day" setting for daily reports that allows the admin to say the notification runs daily at "x" time.

                              • Date sorting on reports

                                Date fields such as "Operating System Info.Installed On" can't be sorted in reports as date-times. They are handled as strings instead. Would be useful if they can be sorted.

                                • Include Date Range Options While Running Reports

                                  We need to see the option to dynamically change the date range of a report while running it. Adding and/or updating the SQL every time is not a usable option.

                                  • Change the 'keep alive' alert to not apply to machines that are off during the time of the alert run and the timeout period.

                                    I run an alert every Friday reminding users to log out of their computers at the end of business. When a computer is off during the time of the scheduled alert, the alert is displayed when the computer comes back on. This is fine, so long as the computer comes back on during the timeout period I allotted for the alert. This alert is useless if presented to the user outside of this time frame.

                                    • Customize reports

                                      We would really like the ability to customize reports, mainly to change header size, fonts, and colors. I've looked all over and don't believe we can currently do this.

                                      • Allow non-admin users run certain reports

                                        All of our assets are tied to users. It would be great if they could run a report to see what assets they have assigned to them. Also, they might want to see a brief summary of all their tickets, a list of all the installed programs on their computer, etc.

                                        • Ability to Run Very Large Custom Queries

                                          We prefer KACE to stick to what its good at (expertly managing clients), and graciously allow the admins the freedom to use Reporting tools that are good at what they do (massaging data and drawing pictures). Of course it is very appreciated to have some minimal reporting and KACE is doing well at that, no issues there. But when it comes to majorly working on data, blending data, trying to perform big-data type analysis with data from other sources (like vulnerability scanners, license databases, AntiVirus databases, etc - the patching relates to other Security databases!!), this requires getting the data…
