  1. Inventory a standalone (non-network) kiosk type of Windows computer from a USB drive & upload the inventory through the K1000 web interface.

    To track assets as well as patch and bios version information for standalone (non-network) kiosk type of Windows computers in the K1000 it would be very useful to inventory such computer from a USB drive with an inventory executable & upload the inventory results via the K1000 web interface. It can be challenging to maintain inventory information (hardware, software, firmware versions) for devices that are never or almost never connected to a network. This would help prioritize asset security efforts by being able to see the inventory for such devices.

  2. Ability to Change Asset Type Name Field Properties

    It would be useful to be able to edit the properties of the NAME field within an Asset Type. For example, make it required, make it a single select field, default value, etc.

  3. Offline vba or other type of Inventory Tool

    I would like to have an Offline vba script or something that does not have to be installed on a system to get the inventory data to an XML file. We have several machines that are not allowed network access or additional software on them. It would help in managing any changes on a periodic basis when updates to those systems happen. Then we can track any changes from the last scan.

    It would be nice if the tool saved the XML file to the same location that the tool is run from. Such as USB drive, Desktop, etc...

  4. "Machine Actions" Button in Asset- and Contract-Items

    In the general options it is possible to define "machine actions" in order to do a VNC-Remote Session for example.

    Please "copy paste" this functionality also for Assets in Asset- and Contract-Management so that we can define Actions on the Asset or Contract page an run specific actions there...

    Background: I would like to implement a dependency-visualisation for assets and contracts and need to call a tool which reads out the dependencies of the Configuration Item (CI) and visualizes them.

    OR

    Even better for us users, Quest implements a solution to visualize dependencies of Assets.
    I wanted to use Graphviz…

  5. KACE should have the OOTB ability to search assets using various different asset attributes

    KACE should have the OOTB ability to search assets by various different attributes, for e.g. Serial#, Host name, User name, asset tag, etc. in the Asset Management module.

    Thank you!

  6. Automatically split multiple license entry into individual licenses

    Sometimes on needs to tie an individual license to either a device or a user.

    To individually enter each separate license is a nightmare to do either manually or using bulk import, especially where one has hundreds or thousands of entries to input.

    There should be a way to automatically duplicate the licensing information according to the quantity entered in the first record.

    For example, a button to press that says "convert to individual licenses"

    The routine would
    1) look at the quantity
    2) automatically duplicate the existing record the correct number of times
    3) Listing the quantity for each…

  7. Attach from cloud based storage

    I think it would be awesome to be able attach files from cloud based storage to assets.

    How we manage assets we typicaly get a quote, save it as a PDF, then get a PO which is also anothe PDF. Eventually we get a PDF of the actualy invoice and another PDF of the packing slip.

    We try to make this a single PDF, so it would be cool to just have an attachment feature allowing you to automatically link a file from a cloud storage service just by searching for the file name. Then we wouldn't have to delete…

  8. Allow Inherited fields to be "Required"

    I would like to have the option to make Inherited Fields such as location and Cost/Profit "Required". I'm forced to use a custom field which then places (2) "location" and "Cost/Profit" fields in the asset.

  9. I would like to see the hardcoded "Assigned To" field available for every asset type for easier searching

    Computers have a hard coded "Assigned To" field that populates the last user that logged in. All other assets don't have this field so when searching it creates discrepencies. I'd like an "Assigned To" field that can be searched for all devices.

    As of now, if I search for a users name under "All assets" it only returns the PC
    If I search the users name under "monitors" it returns their 2 monitors.

    I would like a search under "All Assets" to return both the computer AND the monitors.

  10. View by > No Subtype

    Add the option for viewing inventory items that do not have a subtype. The Advanced Search seems to not have the ability to filter out devices with a subtype using the built in operators including RegEx. At least it doesn't in Inventory.

  11. We would like to suggest allowing the Kace Agent to show the asset type for servers instead of only computers.

    Currently our servers are showing with the asset type Computer under Assets.
    We had to create a sub-type called Server in order to differentiate the computer from the server.

  12. Ability to map the user (owner) of an asset to the asset when importing

    When importing a csv file of assets, I need to be able to assign that asset to an existing user. To do this manually is very tedious and time consuming.

  14. For "Contracts" Feature please add "Yearly" notification option

    Currently for Software-Contracts the "Frequency" available are 15mins, 30mins, Hourly, Daily, weekly, and Monthly. However there is no "Yearly" option. Please add Yearly option.

    Also this can all be fixed if there is an option while creating a Software-Contract to add are Yearly Notification Feature and an automated email is sent to the POCs of that specific Software-Contract via the email, and in addition add a reminder for a month or two prior to contract expiration date. So that way the POCs connect with me directly and can provide me software-contract changes/modification and I can then work towards creating a…

  15. Add an "Exemption" Feature for Computers I don't want Auto-Archived

    If we have multiple segments of users within an organize, for example: team members, Board members and contractors and all are provided a domain computer, however the frequency in which each computer will connect with KACE will be different upon their organizational role. For example if I set Auto-Archiving (MIA) to 120 days intended for the team members segment and Board members dont use their computers within the 120 days, their computers are then scheduled to be Auto-Archived because they connect quarterly or they are unable to Connect for an extended period of time. This then causes an issue because…

  16. Data Validation on Asset entry

    There is validation available for tickets via approver.

    We find that our techs make a lot of errors in data entry and we need validation rules for asset management, that we define. Which prevents data entry with bad data.

    Thanks.

  18. Asset import delete file after import

    The new scheduled asset import is great, but would be better if I could have the option to delete the file from the share/FTP site after it successfully imports the data.

  19. A direct access to the provider menu in Asset management

    We usually access the asset management menu in order to search for a provider. Each time we have to do a selection in the submenu Asset Management › Assets > Provider.
    Can't we have a direct access from the Asset Management root folder ?

  20. Allow the option to hide categories in the category drop down.

    Allow the option to hide categories in the category drop down.

    I don’t want to delete them. I just want to hide them. Seem like such a simple functionality. Even Bridge track had this back 10 years ago
