    This is probably the MOST critical thing that I need out of Samanage right now. I need to be able to track non-active computer assets without using the Other Assets" category. I want to be able to manually create a Computer asset, manually pre-fill some information (such as serial number, etc), and then later when the computer is deployed, have the Agent populate the rest of the information without creating a duplicate. It would be important to have options to specify what field(s) I want the Agent to use to qualify whether the machine already exists when it calls in (such as, serial number).Without this feature I am unable to track non-deployed computer assets, otherwise I'd have to use the incredibly inefficient method of managing computers in the "Other Assets" category, which is absurd"

    What problem will this feature solve?:
