  1. Add multiple items to "Purchases"

    I would like to be able to assign multiple assets to a single "Purchase". That way when we buy consumables / Hardware / etc... we can add the entire purchase to one PO rather than generating a PO for every item.

  2. For the Asset Management Section, save/create fields that are pulling information from "Device"

    The asset management section where all the assets are kept. I am currently pulling information from computers that has the agent with all the hardware information into the assets section. Those are reading from Inventory>>Devices.

    The idea behind this is to let the hardware data save in the asset section with out typing it in , and if the agent was to get deleted. And those info is populating from what the agent is pulling from the computer.

    When the agent is removed from the computer, there is not any details in the asset management section about the device. It…

  3. The ability to delete built-in asset subtypes.

    New in v 9, they provide built-in subtypes for printers. We don't asset tag printers so we don't need those subtypes, but I'm not able to delete them or even edit them to remove the printer-specific fields to make it usable.

  4. Create smart label based on Asset Status

    It would be helpful to create a smart label based on Asset status. For instance, we could target assets/devices with the "missing" status and run a script against that label that pushes stronger security to it, like complete lockout.

  5. Add an "Exemption" Feature for Computers I don't want Auto-Archived

    If we have multiple segments of users within an organize, for example: team members, Board members and contractors and all are provided a domain computer, however the frequency in which each computer will connect with KACE will be different upon their organizational role. For example if I set Auto-Archiving (MIA) to 120 days intended for the team members segment and Board members dont use their computers within the 120 days, their computers are then scheduled to be Auto-Archived because they connect quarterly or they are unable to Connect for an extended period of time. This then causes an issue because…

  6. For "Contracts" Feature please add "Yearly" notification option

    Currently for Software-Contracts the "Frequency" available are 15mins, 30mins, Hourly, Daily, weekly, and Monthly. However there is no "Yearly" option. Please add Yearly option.

    Also this can all be fixed if there is an option while creating a Software-Contract to add are Yearly Notification Feature and an automated email is sent to the POCs of that specific Software-Contract via the email, and in addition add a reminder for a month or two prior to contract expiration date. So that way the POCs connect with me directly and can provide me software-contract changes/modification and I can then work towards creating a…

  9. Asset Management (Purchases) - Purchase Grouping, More Fields, Reporting & More!

    Hello. I think it would be awesome if multiple items could be added to a Purchase. It would also be great if there were fields for taxes and fees. Also having a total column would help identifying purchases when it comes time to budget. Currently I do not see any reporting for purchases. As an IT Manager, it would be awesome to have the ability to run reports to see what you have spent with a specific Vendor for specific date range. What would take that even further is the ability to run a report for a location. Say our…

  10. Asset permissions based on type

    It would be nice to be able to create a custom asset type and assign management of that asset to user labels. For instance, if I have fleet vehicles and would like to give management of those assets to our fleet department, I could create a user label for the fleet department and grant that label permissions to manage the asset types related to the fleet assets.

  11. Allow items to be marked as in storage and have the KACE agent license removed but keep all information about the device in assets.

    When items are sitting on a shelf in storage it would be nice to remove the agent as it is not being used and to also still be able to see the previously inventoried items similar to what you can see after you archive a device. This helps techs know what's on the shelves and if they can be re-purposed or need to be upgraded before reuse.

  12. Ability to Update asset status via KACE GO mobile app

    There seems to be no way to update (or view) an asset's status in the Kace Go mobile app. This field also is missing from 'Create Asset.'

    Although I'm fairly certain this was there in previous versions, I was directed to a feature request. This seems like it should be one of the most basic features for Asset Management via the mobile app.

  13. Smart labels for assets

    I would like to see smart labels for assets that are not devices. This will make filtering and reporting a lot easier for customers that use asset management in large environments

  14. Ability to map the user (owner) of an asset to the asset when importing

    When importing a csv file of assets, I need to be able to assign that asset to an existing user. To do this manually is very tedious and time consuming.

  15. We would like to suggest allowing the Kace Agent to show the asset type for servers instead of only computers.

    Currently our servers are showing with the asset type Computer under Assets.
    We had to create a sub-type called Server in order to differentiate the computer from the server.

  16. View by > No Subtype

    Add the option for viewing inventory items that do not have a subtype. The Advanced Search seems to not have the ability to filter out devices with a subtype using the built in operators including RegEx. At least it doesn't in Inventory.

  18. Asset import templates

    The ability to create a template which has field mappings set up would streamline the import asset process and reduce the chance of error in selecting the wrong field to map, for example prior to imaging with the K2000 we import new devices into our K1000 for naming etc. As each spreadsheet is from a separate school there are many identical imports, having a pre-determined template would save a lot of time.

  19. Ability to run Custom Inventory Rule on a selected group of computers

    If a Custom Inventory Rule is generated in Software it is possible to specify the operating system that gets this rule. But it would also be useful to specify a label with the computers that should run that rule.

  20. Category Field in the Contract Asset Type K1000

    In Asset Management one of the types is "Contracts" the default contract categories are Contract-Software, COntract-Other, and Contract Hardware. I want to add another category of contracts and when I duplicated the Contract Software I found that I could not change the Category field. And the duplicated Contract was not part of the Contract Category. I would find it very useful to be able to change that category for that asset type.
