The selection will filter all reports except for SQL reports. Checking all checkboxes will select all assets, as will clearing all checkboxes. This is a way of choosing either locations to report on, or individual assets.
Use the buttons to export the current data set to PDF, Excel or Microsoft XPS formats.
There are four major types of reports:
- Canned reports for rapid, pre-programmed reporting on common themes
- Compliance reports that return the percentage of items that do or do not meet a defined criterion
- Custom reports where a wide range of available fields can be selected
- SQL reports, where specific queries can be used to provide results that cannot be obtained with the other types of reports.
Hardware Reports (Canned)
Most of these reports present the data in both a chart and grid layout. These reports focus on the hardware itself.
Software Reports (Canned)
Software reports focus on installed applications and operating systems.
Asset Management Reports (Canned)
Simple breakdowns of data relating to asset-management tasks.
Audit Status Reports (Canned)
Reports relating to the auditing of computers.
Choose a criterion from the available fields, select a condition and the report will return the assets that do meet the criterion and those that don't. Useful for determining yes/no scenarios, such as "Is Firefox installed?". Multiple report definitions can be saved and run at a later time.
This type of report presents all the fields that have been audited, e.g. Asset Details/Asset Name, Operating System/Version, Hardware/Adapters/Network/Network Adapter/Name. Choose the ones you want and a grid is returned with those fields as columns. Multiple report definitions can be saved and run at a later time.
User-Defined SQL Reports
Any SELECT statement can be entered. Multiple report definitions can be saved and run at a later time.
