    We are spending significant time and effort in cleansing and standardizing our user data to have accurate 'Site' and 'Department' data prior to importing into Samanage.  We are also planning on using the 'Owner' field in the computer and other assets objects to contain the user of the asset (i.e. Samanage user who the asset is provisioned to).  

     

    Since the 'User' in Samange contains respective 'Site' and 'Department' data, I would like the respective fields in the asset to be auto-populated based on the specific user entered in the asset 'Owner' field.  This would eliminate the need to re-enter the data manually and keep in synch.

    What problem will this feature solve?:
    Time saving Data accuracy Better, higher quality analytics
