    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.

  2. Asset - Ability to do bulk edits

    From within the Asset tab be able to select multiple assets and then assign a value such as "Move all my assets into the location X"

    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.

  4. Ability to edit Descriptions

    In the default Inventory view, there is a field called description. On Windows boxes, it picks up what each machine is labeled as but on Macs, it remains empty. As we typically have the user listed, it would be helpful if this field were editable or if the same information could be pulled from Macs from one of their custom fields.

  5. Print asset labels

    The ability to print asset labels would be a great addition to the asset portion.

    It would allow you to take fields from the asset management system already and create a label with it to add to the devices.

    Also being able to turn some of the field into a barcode for the label would also be great.

  6. Show mapped network drives in computer inventory

    Would love to have a way to see the mapped network drives for each system in the inventory. We use the inventory when it comes time to replace computer systems and right now we have to call individuals to find out what mapped network drives they have and what mapped network printers they have. This requires us to explain in a lot of cases where to go to look and the network path. It is something we would use on a daily basis.

    This was added to the development backlog. We encourage others to vote as we use this input for prioritizing our release plans.

  7. Add Hard Disk Drive model to computer inventory detail

    It would be very helpful if we could determine the hard drive model installed in our PC's without having to manually search.

    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.

  8. Asset Management of computer peripherals, monitors, printers, scanners, usb devices

    Asset Management of computer peripherals, monitors, printers, scanners, usb devices as part of the computer inventory.

    In the inventory of the computer if you could see the ports that the printer is connected to. Right now it just shows the name of the printers installed but if it showed the port also this would help out Help Desk Techs. They wouldn't have to remote the computer to get this information. They could just add printers for a new/rebuild of a machine.

  9. Synchronize physical inventory from the barcode scanner with automatically discovered assets

    We have a handheld bar-code scanner that we use to inventory all of our physical devices. Before adopting the K1000 we were using Numara Track-it system to do the inventory. The great thing about Track-it was the fact that it synced up very nicely with the bardcode scanner and automatically updated the database over the network once the scanner had been placed in it's docking station. This ultimately eliminated the need to constantly import scanned inventory because there was constant synchronization between the handheld scanner and Numara Track-it System. It would be nice if Kace was able to automatically sync…

  11. Improve the process of linking purchased software licenses to the Software Catalog

    Linking licenses to the software catalog in Kace is an excruciating process:
    1. The description from the vendor and the name in the software catalog are never the same
    2. The software catalog does not seem to provide the manufacturers part number
    3. You can only link licenses to the catalog if the software has been discovered (used in inventory). This forces you to monitor each license and its first use to make sure that you link it. Only this way can you ensure that your licensing picture is correct.
    4. You can only export the titles of the software…

  12. Express Code

    As Dell Support now require Express code with their phone support it would be ideal to see if possible to get the Express code details for a machine and record this on KACE 1100.
    Handy..

  13. K1000 blacklist should have a feature able to divided.

    K1000 blacklist should have a feature able to divided.

    K1000 cannot apply separated blacklists for Application Control to many devices.
    An user want to configure both below:
    1. block only  'appA'  on devices labeled 'A'
    2. block only  'appB'  on devices labeled 'B'.
    for 1, the user assigns one computer to a device label 'A'  which has application control marked.
    for 2, the user assigns other computer to a device label 'B' which has application control marked. 
    And user checks  'Not Allowed'  on to 'appA' and 'appB'.
    However both appA and appB will be blocked on 'A' devices and 'B'…

  14. Allow custom selection of criteria for duplicate machine detection algorithm

    The duplicate machine detection alogirithm is not very good and is certainly NOT once-size-fits-all even though it attempts to be.

    Different items are unique in different customers environments. please provide a way for us to choose which inventory fields drive what is a primary Key in our environment. ps. it would be BIOS Serial number for us, although i know that doesn't work for everyone.

    Fortunately, this is true for our dell hardware

  15. Computer Inventory: Compare Selected Machines

    Allow the ability to compare selected machines. Searches can do this in a limited fashion now, but you have to already know what you are looking for. This would be a way to pick two or more machines and basically do a diff on them. The idea is to make it easy to say, "I know these three machines are seeing the same error. What do they have in common?" or "I know this machine has an issue, and this one doesn't, so what's different?"

    Customizable list views will be part of the 6.0 release late this year.

  18. Loaner Pool for checking out any Asset item

    There should be a section for a "Loaner Pool" or some such, that shows all assets that are available to be checked out whether they are a laptop, projector, software license, tablet or any other item. Users should be able to access this section, see what is listed and which items are available or when they will become available.

  19. Ability to show only models from the manufacturer chosen in asset management

    When creating a new asset, with fields Manufacturer and Model, and they are set with field type “single select” it would be nice if when choosing a manufacturer only that manufacturer’s models show up in the model field. Example: Create an asset type “monitor” with fields “Manufacturer” and ”Model”, both fields set as single select and have it set up so if I choose Dell for the manufacturer drop down only Dell models show up as choices in the model field drop down. If HP is chosen, only HP models appear.

  20. On-board password manager

    It would be nice to have an on-board password manager with encrypted passwords with local password encryption. Passwords copied from the field maintain their "hidden" attribute when copied/pasted to another field allowing users to logon to services who need access to a resource, but not necessarily the ability to view/change the password.
    * by default, only users with the 'admin' level role should be able to add, remove or change password entries

    In addition to this feature request, it would also be nice to have the ability to create separate password groups that are only viewable to the labels you…
