  1. 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.

  2. Sharepoint API for K1000 inventory

    It would be nice to have an API to import the inventory from the k1000 to Sharepoint so I don't have to export a csv and then create a list that way.

  5. When importing assets, remove already mapped csv fields

    When importing assets, please remove already mapped csv fields. When you have many custom fields, scrolling through the lists each time you want to map a field can be extremely time consuming.

  6. Bar code scanning from custom made asset types other than the device asset type

    Right now you can only bar code scan to the device asset type. Everything has a bar code such as monitors, printers, scanners, etc..... can we have the ability to bar code scan from custom made asset types as well as the device asset type?

  7. 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.

  9. Ability to save field mapping as configuration item on Import Assets.

    When importing assets from CSV file, the wizard requires field mappings. we must check them.
    Because repeating the check is very complicated, it maybe causes mistake when many fields should be mapped.

    Can the wizard give mapping fields automatically to import fields that are assumed from headers of CSV?
    Or can K1000 save/use configurations parts of Import processes?

  11. 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.

  12. Upload barcode image into Kace with Kace Go

    As an admin, along with the ability to scan barcodes, I would like to be able to upload a picture of the asset's barcode image to the asset record directly from the app.

  14. in the asset types, be able to move asset types alphabetically in the asset type

    I can add asset subtypes to a specific asset but cannot change the order in the drop down menu alphabetically. If I get a new device for that asset type, it gets appended to the end of the list and I have no way to move it up in the list to be in proper alphabetical order. I'd like to be able to move it so that it is easy to search when adding an asset.

  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. 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"…

  17. 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…

  18. Is there a way to have someone only have add permissions to the assets piece?

    Basically right now you have Read, Write and Hide options. If you give Read you cannot add, if you give Write permissions you can both add and delete. How can we get a role setup to only be able to add but not deleted items from the Asset Management piece on the K1000?

  20. 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.
