Updated Asset Permission to where buttons at buttom of asset can be added or removed based on job requirements, etc.
For example: If employee only make updates to assigned assets but does not have rights to delete make permissions to remove Delete Button in assigned role or make it grayed out.
Since 10.0, there is a new setting per asset type that allows restriction of deletion of assets to only admin users.
Would love to see an increase in granularity with asset management roles. Allowing techs in different divisions to update differet asset info for different asset types would be incredibly useful.

I have a very large customer transitioning to Kace and Kace Service Desk functions that is adamant that the ability to delete Assets (and by extension Devices) should be a function that can be specifically denied or allowed on a user or Role level.
Requested Sept. 2013, Planned Jan. 2015. New versions have come but this feature is still missing. We have not allowed field techs to modify the software license asset records so therefore they cannot update any asset records! Summer 2016 and still waiting.
Ugh... I see that this was "Planned" over 1 year ago... Is this still planned? If so, approx. when?
The feature should include the ability to assign Asset Types to Queue's so that only items within an Asset Type is displayed. Currently we have thousands of Assets that are shown when a user selects an Asset, we would like to limit this to only one Asset Type.

This is a very important aspect of asset management and most other solutions already include. I would love to see this implemented and soon.
My help desk folks need to be able to make changes to assets statuses and who the asset is assigned to, etc... But those people do not EVER need to have the right to delete an asset from the database.
I second that.

i really think this idea would be very beneficial if it was implemented in asset permission.
