Uninstall software directly from inventory list
Ability to mark unwanted software titles in the Inventory Software listing and having the following options in the Choose Action dropdown:
• uninstall from all computers
• uninstall from selected computers
It would be significantly easier to get rid of unwanted software instead of creating a new uninstall script for each software title and different versions of it in the worst case.
This was released with v13.0: Simplified Software Uninstallation: You can now quickly either add or remove a Software Catalog item from a Managed Installation using the Software Catalog Detail page.

Just updated to version 13 this is not what we where looking for.
Would have been great if the uninstall string would have populated in the field automatic.
Can this be reopened?
Michael Magill commented
I just installed version 13.0 and I agree with the other commenters - this should not be marked complete. It only includes the Software Catalog, not the regular software listing.
It is a helpful start as it ticks a lot of the boxes automatically for the new managed uninstall, but the catalog doesn't have the uninstall string that the regular software inventory does, so it doesn't fill that in. Unless you already know the uninstall string you still have to go back into the regular software inventory to find it.
Steve Lynch commented
That's a nice addition, but it isn't what I thought the request was for
I was under the impression the request was for uninstalling software from Inventory, not from the Catalog
The catalog feature is not as useful as it would be from Inventory
Based on your wording above, this may not actually be completed as requested. If the software was NOT installed via Managed Installations, can we still uninstall from the software inventory list? (Note: I have not yet read the v13.0 release notes or tested that version.)
Is anything still being developed for KACE?
Not seeing much going on and everything says under review.
The last release was a patch, Can we get a road map or something?

Add User Uninstall

The idea is very good and must be implemented
Daniel Stevenson commented
Love the idea, but wouldn't you want the ability to modify the uninstaller so that customers are not interrupted, or being ask to manually tell it "OK"?
I would add votes for implementing this, however, now that it was marked completed prematurely I cannot!
This isn't complete or even implemented. Fake news.
Guillaume Beauchamp commented
NOT FINISH - Please UPDATE
I don't think this request is finished yet. It is not possible to uninstall software directly via the software inventory list.
How do you do it ?
This has not been completed. The current implementation in SMA 9.0.270 is for "Application Control" which blacklists an application from being run. This request was for UNINSTALLING of specific software. I voted for this because I need software uninstalled.
Michael Magill commented
I also don't see the option. I am on 9.0 of SMA
Ken, i didn't find that option. What version will be updated?
any more word on when this is going to happen?
Todd Varde commented
Would also be nice to have application control setting in same place to prevent the application from being installed again (if it's one that IT wants to block from the environment).
From the software catalog it would be nice to bulk remove applications.
Along with the uninstall options the ability to create a rule to automatically remove. "When software 'xyz' detected run uninstall"
