  1. Reports by asset type and location

    Allow the wizard to create a report by location for each asset type. For example I have several asset types. Devices, Mobile Devices, Printers, Network equipment, etc... For each of these asset types i would like to show which location they are at. The report is limited per asset type. The view for assets can show all assets by location but you can't add additional columns for users, serial number, model, etc. You also can't create a label for assets to use for reports.

  2. Cached Reporting

    I think it would be useful for the reporting system to create a cached copy that can be linked to in an email notification so that I am not loading up our exchange server with report files every time a scheduled report runs. The notification sends out that the report is ready and the user receiving the notification can click a link in the email and go to the readied report in either a selectable or preselected (during creation of schedule/notification) format.

  3. Report Schedules are missing the ability to create a schedule that runs every other week

    Report Schedules are missing the ability to create a schedule that runs every other week or a custom week schedule. It can be achieved using a high level crontab string. But the end user does not have the ability to use that custom string in the Custom option while creating the Reporting Job.

  4. Catalog Windows optional features (Optional Software)

    This data is available from powershell -
    Win10:
    Get-WindowsOptionalFeature -Online
    Server:
    Get-WindowsFeature

  6. Report for time to opened status

    It would be beneficial to have a canned report for time from new to open status that accounts for business hours to report on SLA based upon ticket type.

  7. Patching Snooze Report for agents/machines

    Please add a report that can show how many times a user snoozed the patch job. This can come in handy when a user complains about issues on the machine who refused to do the updates.

  8. Sortable Reports

    It is so frustrating that anytime a custom report is built, it is not exportable to a .xls format that is sortable. If I want a list of all PC's with the Dell Ship Date give it to me with each system AND ship date on a single row of data. As it is, the system information comes out on one row and below that is a "Ship Date" row as a header and then another row or two of ship dates. Please give us an option to get all of the information for 1 device on 1 row of…

  9. All needed patches per device

    I would love to see a report that lists each device and all applicable patches needed. This would include Windows and any 3rd party patches needed. Basically the opposite of the "Devices compliant by patch" report.

  10. Reporting - Definition of the CSV output file

    My use case was:
    I need an inventory report for the billing of licenses for our customers.
    Unfortunately the billing software only reads CSV files with the following definition:
    - semicolon separated (default is comma seperated)
    - UTF8 (default is )
    - only text fields are between quotation marks (default is all fields are between quotation marks)

    After my unsuccessful searching for an option to define the creation of a Reporting CSV file I contacted the support and I was told that there is no option to define the CSV output file. I was recommended to leave demand here.

  11. Allow configuration of PDF orientation when exporting reports

    Some reports could greatly benefit when exporting if they could come out landscape.

  12. cidc

    To get SAM Certified by Microsoft, it's needed to fill in a specific excel-template called Clead Inventory Data Contract (CIDC). Microsoft won't accept any other format. It would be great if the K1000 had a built in CIDC-Report, that fills in all data it can provide directly into the according field in that specific template.
    I think this woul be useful for many organization, because as of now it is the only way to get SAM-Certified.

  14. Put the preview back in the Report Wizard so you can see the results before saving it.

    The Report Wizard used to allow you to preview the results of your report before saving it so you can make changes. Would like this feature added back.

  15. Generate report via email without a schedule

    Currently we allow reports to be scheduled or generated via the UI. Sometimes I just want to generate as an attachment ad-hoc and email to a user or address. Adding a generate to Email button to the existing formats might open a dialogue and prompt for the address and report attachment type.

  16. Additional date formats in reports

    I would like to be able to set the date format in reports regardless of the locale. I use the SMA in German and when I create a report I get the date shown as follows: dd.mm.yyyy

    Anyone who has ever tried to sort something according to this format knows how suboptimal that is. Therefore, I would appreciate it if I could choose which format the date should be displayed in a report. This could certainly be implemented via a simple drop-down menu.

  17. Add the option to Disable Custom Inventory Fields so they can easily be reactivated when needed.

    Add the option to Disable Custom Inventory Fields so they can easily be reactivated when needed.
    Sometime it can take a lot of effort to obtain the Custom Inventory desired. Once the information is obtained, the cif needs to be deleted to stop the unnecessary processing.
    It would be nice if there was an option to Disable Custom Inventory Fields to stop the unnecessary processing when it is is not needed, but easily reactivated when needed.

  18. Reports saved to folder

    It would be very helpful to be able to have scheduled reports saved to a folder location (network share) as an additional option to e-mail.

  19. Create a report wizard for patching

    A simple report wizard that allows you to point to a patching label and outputs Machine name, number patches needed by that machines, # successes, # errors and %. Maybe the ability to specify severity level...

    Example output: Test-machine1 20 19 1 95%

    Seems like every org would need this without having someone with SQL scripting and SMA knowledge to have to create it.

  20. Add the option to use Report Wizard AFTER a report was created

    Need an option to use the Report Wizard (or SQL) after a report is created. We have reports that were created using the Wizard but that option is no longer available to edit/adjust the report.
