Uninstall software directly from inventory list
Ability to mark unwanted software titles in the Inventory Software listing and having the following options in the Choose Action dropdown:
• uninstall from all computers
• uninstall from selected computers
It would be significantly easier to get rid of unwanted software instead of creating a new uninstall script for each software title and different versions of it in the worst case.

Love the idea, but wouldn't you want the ability to modify the uninstaller so that customers are not interrupted, or being ask to manually tell it "OK"?
I would add votes for implementing this, however, now that it was marked completed prematurely I cannot!
This isn't complete or even implemented. Fake news.

NOT FINISH - Please UPDATE
I don't think this request is finished yet. It is not possible to uninstall software directly via the software inventory list.
How do you do it ?
This has not been completed. The current implementation in SMA 9.0.270 is for "Application Control" which blacklists an application from being run. This request was for UNINSTALLING of specific software. I voted for this because I need software uninstalled.

I also don't see the option. I am on 9.0 of SMA
Ken, i didn't find that option. What version will be updated?
any more word on when this is going to happen?
Todd Varde commented
Would also be nice to have application control setting in same place to prevent the application from being installed again (if it's one that IT wants to block from the environment).
From the software catalog it would be nice to bulk remove applications.
Along with the uninstall options the ability to create a rule to automatically remove. "When software 'xyz' detected run uninstall"

I agree, this seems to be a fairly straightforward request since the uninstall string is in ITNinja anyways.
