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.
Please remove this built-in (asset subtypes, as well as location) crap ASAP
i don't care if we can't delete them but at least let us remove them from the asset since printers are not considered a computer subtype in my office. This is so annoying.
I understand that this is an attempt by Quest to enhance product functionality, which is great! Overall, Quest developers are doing a great job. However, we have noticed that the ability to customize KACE asset management is only decreasing, most recently with the addition of built-in Computer subtypes that cannot be deleted. Being able to at least hide built-in asset types and subtypes would be a nice feature.

We updated to v9.0.270 and mysteriously subtypes Laserprinter:Color & Laserprinter:Monochrome showed up under our "Computer" asset type. Now we have to select Asset Type, Computer, All Computer Subtypes to view our Computer Assets. Very annoying when we did not add or need this.

The addition of Printer color and monochrome subtypes n Devices is annoying. We have our own Printer Asset Type and do not need that under Devices
