Our thoughts on this feature are evolving. The ability to construct a floor map, plot different objects (people, printers, fire extinguisher, etc) and have links back into the asset management module are all concepts we are starting to think through. This will be a longer term deliverable but please continue providing your feedback.

    Is this still being though about? We have found another product that will do this for software license monitoring. I would love to have this tie into all the work and history that we have in the K1

    Another product I use has this capability and it is extremely useful for my staff on the networking side of things.

    Please provide an update on the progess

    This could also help those of us that have smaller departments and a larger office space if we could map out the data drops/jack numbers at each desk in the event a jack or port needs to be troubleshot.

    I think most organizations would benefit from having a floor plan and being able to tie assets and people to locations for easy finding. An really recent example where this would be beneficial to my team is a new team member has just joined the organization and he needs to quickly be able to locate a requestor as tickets get assigned to him. Being able to click the requestor or asset name and see it on a map would be awesome. Our workstations and rooms are already labeled with identifiers, so it should be a straight forward project once supported by the Kace interface.

    I love this idea. We use maps for Meraki's and Ubiquiti devices, and being able to map end-user devices would be great. For us, it would allow a visual way to see what each user has assigned to them, and where the equipment is. (IE - tagged PC, Monitors, peripherals, etc.. at a desk)...

    I agree with Sasha. Start basic with png's. Ubiquity's UniFi software works like Meraki. It uses Google maps or a uploaded image and drag and drop items linked to inventory.

    meraki has been doing it with their wifi heatmap interface for years... One doesn't need to be able to 'contrust' a floor map, just import a png/whatever, and place dots that correspond to assets. Just go with a lean approach; give us the very basics and we'll give feedback

    Im glad to see Kace is now looking into this feature. It would be a great asset to the k1000 applicance.

    This would be a good feature. Would need a high resolution picture to use to zoom into. Also would be a good feature is the icons are connected to assets and show information when hovering over icon.

    this would be good, but what would be better is if you could assign desk numbers, or office locations to the asset and then they show on the map

  • Jason Lazerus commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    It would be great too if we could move assets to different locations by dragging them to rooms on the map and have it update the asset details.

    Think this would be brilliant for troubleshooting and keeping a check on your assets a location

    This would be nice, We currently have a good sysem in place that maps our corporate directory (web based) to a pdf with seat numbers. It links to the floor map (pdf), searches and highlights the location based on the hyperlink. It's pretty awesome and quite useful. Having this feature built-in to Kace would be nice.

    Any update on this? I have been using Visio and Excel to track floor plans for a while now and I would love to have an integration with our Inventory system. Would save me time from updating two different sources.
