It would be nice to be able to add or change Asset status. There are not enough default status to suit our needs.
I agree, need to have at least a few more values. My use case is that I would like a status of "decommissioned," to be used mostly for VMs taken out of production use. To me, "disposed" means it has been thrown away, deleted, recycled, etc.
I would really like to be able to edit the Status of an Asset. If I could add my own custom labels or edit existing names. For example I would like to add a status of 'decommissioned' as well as 'depreciated asset' along with other options. If this is a feature you guys are thinking about implementing I believe the community as a whole could benefit from it greatly. I believe it would be awesome to be able to add my own custom status labels for assets.
As always you guys rock,
I too would like to see this Asset Status list modifiable. Would like to have something like "To be returned" , Loaned out", replaced (not the same as Replacement)
I would like to see "in storage" or "in store," loaned out," and "decommissioned." We buy our PC's in bulk so they sit in a locked room "in store" before we start to image them. We also have a pile of decommissioned PC's that are waiting to be e-wasted, but have not yet been disposed of.
This feature would also help with Samanage licensing audits.
I definitely a decommissioned status or an awaiting disposal status. We only dispose of equipment once or twice a year so often have many items that don't fit any of the standard statuses.
What we did for this same issue - we set the asset status to disposed, but in a location of "waiting for disposal". Then we can report on items that are at the site "Waiting for disposal" when we want to generate a list for an e-waste pickup, or to give to accounting to take off the books. When they get picked up, we change it over to a location of Disposed. It's not perfect, but it got us to where we needed to be in the meantime until we can add a "decomissioned" or "Awaiting disposal" status.
I would love this as well. We often sell some equipment so being able to report on what was sold vs what was disposed of would be great for us.
This is a huge issue for us when we do asset analysis as the current statuses are extremely vague. Having at least 10-15 customized statuses would really help us maintain and track where our assets actually are. "In Transit" and "Received" would be 2 that we could really benefit from.
**I see this idea was originally posted in 2015, any chance in 2018 we will see traction on this request?**
It would be great to be able to add or change Asset statuses to fit our organizations needs. There are not enough default statuses today to really get a clear picture where our assets are.
Lets Vote Up!
A custom status for assets under "legal hold". I don't think that status really requires much more explaining
Same here, we need to be able to create custom statuses such as "loaned out". We also wanted to combine "lost" with "stolen" as a new "lost or stolen" status since in many case we never really know which it is when we have a missing item. It makes it a little more cumbersome trying to run numbers on how many we've had with those statuses each year.
