  1. 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.

    under review  ·  Dean Wade responded

    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.

  3. 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.

  4. Custom Logo on Admin UI

    Could we please have the ability to replace the Admin UI logo as we have the ability to do so on the User UI and Reports.

  5. 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…

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Smart user labels

    Smart user 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.

  9. Drill Down Based On Labels

    It would be nice if you could choose an option that instead of using the labels to be completely inclusive you can use the labels to be more exclusive. For instance, you could use a label for Windows XP machines and then another label for machines that have Firefox 3.x installed. Instead of having to make a brand new label for windows xp machines with firefox installed you could use both in conjunction to drill down to what you're looking for. This would allow you to create more broad labels that could be used over and over again.

  10. Improve Advanced Search Logic

    Currently, as of version 7.1, the Advanced Search (which is leveraged by labels, etc) uses a graphical line-based approach to scope your search, with only basic OR/AND operators and very confusing (visually) "grouping", and this makes following or adjusting the logic of a search extremely difficult and confusing.

    A simple fix would be to change 'grouping' to include parenthesis on either side of each respective line item to provide visible boundaries for our constraints. Additionally, or alternatively, you could provide the summarized search logic below all of the advanced search lines to get a better idea of what the logic…

  11. Integrate notes in Label wizards

    The ability to define notes (and edit notes) via the wizard would be ideal. Also having a mouseover event that shows notes in the UI in places other than the label management screen.

  13. Create Smart label from Inventory

    The option to create a smart label from any process, software, or service. Say i drill down to the process iexplore.exe. It would be nice if there was button/link that would automatically create a smart label based on the process, service, or software you had pulled up

  14. Allow sorting by column under security>Detect and deploy patches>(schedulename)>Show All

    I have more systems in a patch schedule than are visible on one page and it would be helpful in monitoring progress if I could sort them by status, name, or other collumn.

  16. Stop wasting space at the top of the page

    The static frame at the top of the web UI wastes a lot of space. Please make it much smaller.

  17. Navigation Menu - pop-out when hidden instead of unhide on navigation

    I would love to use the hide Nav Menu feature, it would improve crucial horizontal screen real estate, but I never do because every time I click on something in the menu it just un-hides it.

    It would be markedly better if when toggled hidden the menu just stayed hidden and becomes a pop-out instead. This functionality isn't new, may sites do this. KACE's "View by:" also does something similar though has overlapping issues.

    I brought this up at the last conference.

    This issue may be fixed in the next major release. The plan is to let you click (without expanding) to get to any dashboard page, and it will remember the fact that you’ve hidden the main nav panel when you get to the next page. However, I believe you may be asking specifically for a “hover” functionality which would auto-show the nav (and hide it). Please let me know if what we are planning does not meet your needs so we can change it back from “started” status and re-release the votes

  18. Refresh button in single computer inventory view

    In order to track dell updates etc this would be a nice feature. Refresh web-page (F5) triggers re-login and returns to home screen so there is no way to refresh the single computer inventory page without going back to inventory listing

  19. Clickable links in Asset management

    Item(s) in assets should be CLICKABLE links especially if the item(s) have pages/information related that is located on the KBOX.

    This enables MUCH faster navigation when seeking information in the Asset database or within the kbox.

  20. Update survey emails to streamline feedback submission

    Would like to see the survey emails contain the 1-5 star rating as a hyperlink, so that the user can just click on a rating and have the survey result logged with a single click. Then the user can be directed to the website so they can add comments as well if they so chose.

    My company is looking to drive survey engagement and we think that streamlining the feedback process could increase the number of responses we are seeing.

    Thank you,
