  1. Add ability to export lists

    For any list that is generated, add the ability to export the results in various formats. For instance: Go into Software and locate a specific software title. The resulting page has a list of devices that software is installed on. Off the ability to export All or selected items, from the inventory list to CSV, TXT, XLSX, PDF, etc.

  2. Management of network interfaces

    In a high security network it is imperative that network interfaces (e.g. Wireless, Mobile, Bluetooth, etc.) be easily managed (e.g. disabled) to ensure that no internet or other network connection be made while connected to the secure network. In other words the only trusted network connection will be the primary wired network interface.
    It would be great if one can easily have all other network connections disabled while connected to the primary network and then re-enabled when a workstation is removed from the protected network.

  3. In the assets -> devices can you make it so the status field can be set to required?

    The new status field is great, can we have a checkbox to make this a required field? People add new assets and dont set the status is killing the point of asset management.

  4. Locations - Ability to Sort "View By:" "Locations" view

    Would like the ability to alphabetically sort the list of locations displayed when selecting "View By" and "Locations" from the Assets menu. The list is currently sorted by order entered, or asset unique ID. We have over 100 locations and it makes it very cumbersome to scroll through the list every time. A search field option would also help with this issue.

  5. Central index of files on workstations

    It'd be useful for many if the agent could upload an index of files from selected locations (Say My Docs, Desktop, etc) to the server so that admins could perform a search for missing documents etc.

    In the future, you could build on this to provide a sharepoint-style enterprise search centre that catalogs workstations aswell as servers.

  6. For the Asset Management Section, save/create fields that are pulling information from "Device"

    The asset management section where all the assets are kept. I am currently pulling information from computers that has the agent with all the hardware information into the assets section. Those are reading from Inventory>>Devices.

    The idea behind this is to let the hardware data save in the asset section with out typing it in , and if the agent was to get deleted. And those info is populating from what the agent is pulling from the computer.

    When the agent is removed from the computer, there is not any details in the asset management section about the device. It…

  7. Ability to run Custom Inventory Rule on a selected group of computers

    If a Custom Inventory Rule is generated in Software it is possible to specify the operating system that gets this rule. But it would also be useful to specify a label with the computers that should run that rule.

  8. Ability to set the default view

    Would like the ability for a service desk tech to set the default view of the assets page to a specific asset type or Active items rather than All items upon opening.

  9. Asset Rules Engine

    I would like to have a basic rules engine for the Asset portion of the tool so that we can update the Asset fields using the rules. For examples:

    If computer is a member of LDAP Label "HR" then apply Department value "HR"

    If computer is a member of Label "London" then apply Location Value "London"

    If the last login user was "Wayne Smith" apply the user value "Wayne Smith"

    If the last inventory was not within the last 30 days then set a custom asset status filed as "Missing"

    This could be built in the existing smart label /…

  10. Asset import templates

    The ability to create a template which has field mappings set up would streamline the import asset process and reduce the chance of error in selecting the wrong field to map, for example prior to imaging with the K2000 we import new devices into our K1000 for naming etc. As each spreadsheet is from a separate school there are many identical imports, having a pre-determined template would save a lot of time.

  11. Inventory - collect all IPs bound to a network interface

    In the Inventory, the network interfaces for a Windows machine only lists the "primary" IP address. This is confusing because inventory run on Linux machines list every IP address bound to each interface. The inventory should be configured to list all IP addresses bound to the network interface on Windows; not just the primary IP address.

  13. Add Errors to Asset Import Failures

    Include an entry-by-entry error that explains why an Asset Import from CSV failed (or include the ability to export one).

    I currently import upwards of 300 assets at a time into K1000 from csv and when a dozen succeed but 288 fail I'd like to see why, especially when they all have identical fields mapped. For example, if the asset is assigned a Location that can't be found in the K1000, put another (error) column on the output saying 'Location not found' against the attempted asset uploaded.

    Even better would be the ability to upload the Assets anyway, missing out…

  14. Primary Qwner

    I would like to see a field in the Device Inventory for "Primary Owner" of a Computer. It would be nice if settings could be available that work like this:


    1. If the "Primary Owner" field is empty and a user logs into a computer "X" number of times (consecutively), that user is listed in the "Primary Owner" field. If a user has not logged into the computer "X" number of times, the "Primary Owner" field remains empty.


    2. If the "Primary Owner" field is not empty and a user other than the "Primary Owner" logs into the computer, "X" number of…

  15. Give Options to Remove or Toggle off required fields in Assets

    I have items in the devices the licences that have fields implemented by the developer. Most of these I do not use and do not want to. It also confuses other members of my team that try to create new items and see all of these unnecessary fields. I also feel this way about location since it has permeated all assets. Can we please have an option to remove these completely or remove them from the new item and item editing view?

  16. Create smart label based on Asset Status

    It would be helpful to create a smart label based on Asset status. For instance, we could target assets/devices with the "missing" status and run a script against that label that pushes stronger security to it, like complete lockout.

  17. Capture networking related info

    Would be nice to have the K1100 capture all of an end-point's neworking related information on checkin - default gateway, DHCP server, DNS servers. This would be very useful in determining if you had some sort of rogue network services provider on your network - or if there were systems that needed to be looked at after an infrastructure change.

  18. Perminence of selections in Check Boxes (NOT reuqire holding CTRL)

    When, for example we have a license instance that is applied to 10 machines, in the software license management, you specify the machines you need the license to be aligned to, however I have 200 machines and a scroll box with 10 visible lines. To select multiple items, I have to hold CTRL, and scroll up and tick the boxes. If I let go of control, and press a check box, I loose all the other selections.

    This is especially annoying if I am trying to edit such an item, say a user leaves and the license is to aligned…

  19. script new asset

    It would be nice if we could pre-populate asset forms by the Address Bar variables.

    Example:

    http://IPADDRESS/adminui/asset.php?ASSETTYPEID=8&Name=ServerName01&Description=Test
    Server

    This would be great to pre-fill out asset from a scripting point of view.

  20. Update KACE GO app to only show the modules that are purchased

    We purchased KACE for Asset Management, however when logged into the KACE GO mobile app, it shows the other modules also for e.g. Service Desk, Monitoring Alerts, Create ticket, etc. These modules should be hidden instead of grayed out.
