Status bar indicators, new assistants & errors highlight

The network tree just got a little fancier and a little more convenient. Take a look at this screenshot here.

The first figure on the status bar is the number of scanned nodes you have and your license capacity. The progress bar shows how close you are to the license limitation. Note how assets with scanning errors and manually added ones are not taken into account and are shown separately.

The new OS architecture assistant provides “x32” and “x64” labels. You may use filtering by architecture type as well.

Athena and Zeus there have been unfortunate at scantime, which is indicated by the little error icons.

Another new assistant enables you to filter the tree by Asset kind: that is, “scanned”, “failed to scan” and “manually added”. That’s basically what status bar counters stand for. Do you know that feel when you want everything but scanning errors out of the way so you could deal with them? Possible now.

Date format options

Go to Options / General and you’ll find this in Format options section:

Unchecking Use relative dates will help you if you never ever want to see “Today” or “Monday” instead of the actual date.

And the second option speaks for itself allowing you to format your dates to your heart’s desire.

 

Software installations report

While the next version of our Software accounting tab is still WIP, the current one constantly needs some little tweaks and additions which we try to provide ASAP. A short time ago we discovered that Software accounting tab was actually missing the most basic and useful report. Now it’s in place.

This table features every installation of software items that you select. It can be easily searched, printed or exported to Excel for further processing.
