Network discovery progress indication

Discovering of large IP ranges takes a lot of time, and not having any progress indicator led to confusion at some point: is it still running or what? No such problem after this update. You’ll see the discovery progress and the IP that is currently being checked right there.

New fields in table reports

Table report constructor in TNI 2 contained hundreds of fields all the way, but there’s no such thing as too many table fields, now is there? Available now are: Workgroup/Domain, Storage Path and Group, Serial number, UUID, Date and time of the last scan attempt and Error message, Virtual platform name, etc.

Expand / Collapse all

And this one is very simple but handy. Hover your mouse over any group in your storage, and you’ll find buttons for expanding or collapsing all the groups inside it. Surprisingly highly requested feature.

    

And now it’s time to shed some light on what’s next.

First, this:  

Second, we’re busy redesigning the insides of our Software accounting tab. Some of the most wanted features will get implemented. It’s also going to work faster and look better.

Third, we’ve got a team working on Custom devices feature. You’ll be able to add anything to your inventory, even if it is not connected to the network. Even if it was never meant to. You know, even if it is a chair:  . Why not?

Finally, we’re going to boost the Configuration history feature development. So you’ll be able to see what has changed in every asset since it was first scanned: what software was added or removed, what hardware was replaced, etc. This will take some time to build, but we’ll make it worth it.

And some other tasty things. We won’t reveal everything at once. Stay with us!
