Independent Tagging for Software with the Same Version and Build From Contracts

Idea created by on Oct 3, 2016
    Under Consideration

    Hello, all!


    In Inventory, if I view software installed on a specific computer and tag it according to an item I create in a contract (using FileMaker Pro 12 as an example), the tag will be automatically applied to ALL installations of FileMaker Pro 12, not just one.




    CURRENT FUNCTIONALITY (see last item):

    Since we have different serial numbers for different companies in our organization, as well as different serial numbers within a company, we need to be able to track installations according to the serial number in use.  This will assist with reconciliation, provided the specific tag in use can be acknowledged and accounted for properly in the contract.


    In the example below, XXXX(X) at the end of each row refers to different serial numbers (XXXX1, XXXX2, and XXXX3).



    DESIRED FUNCTIONALITY (see the last three items):

    Without this, we have no way of determining if our user base for a given serial number matches with what their company owns.
