ScreenConnect as a live Asset Inventory Tool

justin@imaginesystems.net 3 years ago updated by anonymous 3 years ago 2

It occurred to me today the ScreenConnect has the potential to be an extremely helpful live asset inventory tool given the addition of some basic CSV export functionality.


I maintain spreadsheet inventories of computer assets for multiple clients and keeping them updated is often a struggle as moves and changes happen without my involvement. SC has the info I need by nature of it's constant updating. It knows the current user account. It knows when a computer is no longer used (hasn't checked in in forever). I rename the agents in my portal according to this format "ASSET# / ASSIGNED USER" for ease of finding who (which computer) our support team needs to connect to when a support request comes in. Often SC will alert me to a PC user change that I am unaware of when the current user no longer matches the assigned user attributed to the SC agent name. SC helps me to self correct my inventory in this way. And since I'm updating in SC already, why maintain a separate spreadsheet if SC could export this data?


I also use custom properties in SC to define additional info such as company, site location, equipment make/model, etc. SC also automatically pulls in various computer specs.


I propose that an export funstionality be added for these fields of info (as well as last check in) so that I may export an asset inventory spreadsheet on demand. This would save a ton of time spent inputting and updating info that SC already has and it would be an inherently more accurate inventory.


This minimal addition would have a huge benefit and strongly add to what an already great product that SC is.


Please UPVOTE this people!!! Let's get it done!

Hey All,

It is possible to pull custom properties and general information displayed on the session detail panel with the Report Manager Extension. It'll be possible to generate Access session reports with the next iteration of the Reporting Extension, which is soon to release.

Hello,


I really really Would like SC to replace OCS or Fusion Inventory plugins... no need all the fields they provide... a very few of them is suffisant :

  • Computer Constructor
  • Computer Model
  • Computer Serial Number
  • HDD Constructor
  • HDD Model
  • HDD Size
  • HDD Free Space

Live update of this would be a GREAT functionnality... (also need to Export or connect to DB to extract ... MySQL ?!)


Thanks.
