Change Asset History Retention
Inside the Asset history for each type I would like to have it changed so that the asset history retention can be individually controlled for each Asset type. For example, I have a "Branch Office" asset that shows address and internet provider info. I would like to keep any changes to this information forever because there's not many changes, but when there is, it's important to know when the change was made. However, I cannot set it to keep the history forever, because it bogs down the KACE appliance with keeping all changes for any Asset. I'm stuck with the longest time period, 12 months. I wish there were 2, 3, 4, 5 years available as well. The same thing could be said for the Software asset, a forever asset history could be important too for any license changes to be kept.
Another problem, the Computer type I don't need asset history changes for a year, instead 6 months is sufficient, but I can't set it to that because it gives me even less history for my Branch Office asset. Honestly, the Computer asset is the busiest of the assets, and it should be controlled totally separate from all other Assets.
This is under consideration but not planned for the next release, Please continue voting if you’d like to see this feature prioritized for a future release.

Ability to add Lifecycle status's instead of sub asset type. Lifecycle status would be used to filter inventory and reports. Devices in a disposed state should not count against the license count for an appliance. Or Create an unmanaged table that keeps all of the historical data of the computer/asset inventory
