Create or edit Software License Group

Software License Groups are designed to assist in the identification of those items of software where you want to track the installed (license) count per Client.

They utilize our Software Catalog, so you can take the pre-emptive step of adding software to the license group that is not yet installed on any of the ClientÂ’s devices. This is particularly useful when creating a Software License Group for banned (unauthorized) software or when you are aware of an upcoming new software roll-out.

Software License Groups are intended for the categorization of software collections into vendor or product range bundles, rather than create a group for a specific software version. For example, create a Software License Group for all Microsoft office versions.

Software License Groups are managed via the Asset Tracking Dashboard.

Go to Settings > Software License Groups
