We’re pleased to announce the second beta release of PDQ Inventory 1.0.1. It’s available now for download now. This beta focuses mainly on bug fixes but there are a couple of small new features.
When the console starts it will check the PDQ Inventory’s credentials and make sure that they are set correctly, restarting the service if needed.
Added a description to collections. The description shows up in the header on the collection page.
Renamed the Scan Date column on computers to Attempted Scan Date to better reflect the value. The next beta will include Successful Scan Date which will contain the date of the last successful scan.
Added collection filters for Local Users, Local Groups, Local Group Members, and Shares.
The big new feature, however is SQL Reports. Now there are 2 types of report: Basic, using the report builder, and SQL which allows for reports to be created using any valid SQL. Please give it a try and let us know what you think.
Our next scheduled beta will be Beta 2 of PDQ Deploy and Deploy Pro. This beta is taking a bit longer because of one large change. This new version will combine PDQ Deploy and PDQ Deploy Pro into one product. It will work like PDQ Inventory in that it will have a Free and Pro mode. We’re going to use the PDQ Deploy product name and it will actually be released as version 1.5.0 (Beta 1).
It’s taking some more time to test because the software needs to upgrade both PDQ Deploy and PDQ Deploy Pro. Since it’s using the PDQ Deploy name it will install over PDQ Deploy and along side PDQ Deploy Pro, so that you can still run PDQ Deploy Pro while testing PDQ Deploy 1.5.
Thanks again for all of your help with testing the betas.
