    Me too.

    I have a daily report that sends out any new applications that may have somehow been installed on any of our computers that is not authorized. I'm in the process of updating the report to exclude things like new java/flash updates and any approved applications. After this the report is blank unless their is really something for me to look at.

    Thanks Andrew and Mmuni. I've added this to a feature request along with a sample use-case in addition to Mmuni's.

    Hello,

    Did this feature ever get added to Inventory?

    Following up on this as well.  I really need this ability. Or at the very least, give me a variable in auto-reports to show the record count for the report.   I know that is difficult since auto-reports can contain many reports, but could add a section in the variables drop down for each report.  

    Example:
    Auto-report has two reports.  Offline Computers and New Installations

    In the (x) drop down, there would be a folder called reports > and then some variables like:

    Offline Computers:Count

    New Installations:Count

    This way I could use $(Offline Computers:Count) in my report body or subject.

    Hi, 

     

    i'd LOVE to have this functionnality too.

     

    ThinK about it if you have that option you can pretty much turn PDQ inventory into PDQ System Monitoring (c) ^^

     

    I already have a lots of auto reports that only gets populated when there is something wrong about one of my servers, like an unplanned shared folder, an application installed and so on.

     

    Problem is i get a lot of empty reports everyday, if only i could receive only the one with actual data in tgem it would be veeeeery nice.

    This feature would be great!

    We have an auto report about open shares and users left logged in where they shouldnt be, it would be amazing to be able to have the auto report not send if the report/reports/collections that are attached to it are empty

    No updates. It's in our list of feature requests, but isn't currently on our internal roadmap.

    I agree, it should not be a difficult change. I'm pushing for us to add it to our roadmap, but I can't guarantee that'll happen.

    >is your features request list and or some roadmap available for consultation somewhere ?

    No. I would love to have something like that someday though!

    That's the PowerShell Scanner (write your own Scanner with a PowerShell script). Don't tell anyone I told you ;)

    REALLY ? 

     PowerShell Scanner ?

    is that for real or are you joking ? because i think I dreamed of something like this (mega powershell fanboy here)

    If it's a way to populate some custom attributes in PDQ with a custom Powershell script man I'm super impatient to see it !

    It is 100% for real. I believe you can still sign up for the private beta here: https://forms.gle/nFFVqfy2PqYrqP2h6

    Here's a sneak peak of the current alpha version:
