  1. Advanced Search feature at Settings - Users

    It would be great to have the same Advanced Search under Settings -> Users tab, as we have under all tabs of Inventory

    • multiple snmp ip scan

      Allow for more than one SNMP community string in an IP Inventory Scan.

      we have thousands of devices and not all have the same SNMP community string, it would be nice to allow us to specify a list of community strings to attempt during the IP Inventory Scan. Simmilar to how we can specify multiple ports to scan.

      • Ability to separate Custom Inventory items from Software

        I have some Custom Inventory items that are not for software but informational purposes. I would like to be able to select a check box so that these items will not show up in the Installed Programs list for the computer inventory item.

        • Inventory - Server Detection

          It would be nice if the KACE agent when installed on a server could detect and report automatically on an enhanced range of settings. Ie, having the kace agent installed on a Server 2k8 R2 box it would be nice if another section appeared in the inventory called Server with sub headings of Shares, Roles, Configurations. Having it show active dhcp ranges etc would be great for keeping track of large environments where a great number of virtual servers are used.

          • security in Help Desk

            Have the possibility to block certain queues from certain help desk administrators. That way different helpdesk teams can only work with their own queues and don't see confidential information in tickets from other queues.

            • Track Asset Changes

              when performing a hardware refresh it would be nice to keep a running list of computers per user. Should I replace a computer, I want to be able to keep that in for tracking purposes

                We will implement improved asset tracking, archival, and assignment to users in a coming release.

              • Script dropdown from inventory list/summary page

                It would be nice to run a script from the inventory screen. I find myself looking at the device details than having to open up the scripting window, go to run now, than type in the computer name. It would be a lot more convenient to leave your inventory screen.

                • Mac Un-Install Wizard

                  Macs should have similar options to the PC where you can set up policies to have programs automatically removed (such as torrent clients, etc).

                  • Add WIFI NIC MAC Addresses to Computers: Detail screen

                    I have a lot of laptops (and even more every month). I don't document their MAC addresses anymore because the K1000 should do this. This is not so with WIFI NIC MACs. Please add this support.
