Using Configuration Summary Tables:
1. Software inventory and stock-keeping. You can create reports on the availability of particular programs and number of copies installed on computers. Create reports on versions of operating system, installed updates and bug-fixes, codecs or entries in the automatic startup group.
2. Planning and preparation of hardware upgrades. Create reports on computers with insufficient RAM size or disk space (e.g., all computers with less than 512 MB of RAM). Similarly, you can create reports on computers with particular CPU models, video cards or printers.
To create a configuration summary, click the toolbar button "Main -> Summary Table".
The new window that appears will display the computers that match the specified terms. During the first launch, the program will display computers' hardware configuration summaries.
At the bottom-left, you can see the button for saving the summary to file. The drop-down list by the button allows selecting the format for saving the summary to file.
The following file formats are available:
- MS Word
- MS Excel
- Comma separated values (CSV)
- Plain text
The button "Columns" selects the data to be displayed in the summary table columns.
The button "Filter" allows specifying terms for selecting computers. For instance, you can select computers with a specific program on the installed software list, or computers with a particular RAM size.
You can use several filters simultaneously. When creating filtering terms, you can use the following conditions:
- More than (>)
- Less than (<)
- Equal (=)
