Why do you need this report? Keep reading below!
Software licensing, specifically knowing what software is installed in your environment and when it was last used, is a big challenge. Wouldn’t it be nice to see in a SCCM report what software was recently used on an individual computer? If you had this information at your fingertips, you would know what additional software titles could be removed during a planned software uninstall.
If you recall, one of our monthly giveaway reports last year was Recently Used Application Details. That report tied the information provided by Installed Software and Asset Intelligence (AI) together, but unfortunately, there wasn’t a means to drill through to see what other applications were recently used on a specific computer. That is until now!
Solution: Computer Recently Used Application Details
Now you can see all of the applications recently used on an individual computer in the report, Computer Recently Used Application Details!
There are many uses for this report, including determining what software needs to be installed on a new computer, or seeing what software was last used by a user. These details, all in one handy report, will help you make the most out of your IT licensing budget by allowing you to recoup unused licenses.
All of the information for this report is tied directly to SCCM’s Asset Intelligence (AI). AI’s recently used application details (product name, product version, last used by user name, last date used and time, and the number of days since the product was last used) are reproduced and refined in this report.
Are you unsure if you have SCCM’s Asset Intelligence feature enabled? No problem. Read this easy step-by-step guide, How to Setup, Configure and Use SCCM’s Asset Intelligence, by our Chief Architect, Garth Jones. Garth says that, “This underused feature can be enabled within a few minutes.”
Note: By default, recently used application details are only stored for 90 days before being removed from the SCCM database. As such, if a software title is NOT listed in this report, it means that it has not been used in 90+ days.
In the screenshot below, you can see that this computer used 445 software titles in the last 90 days.
By the way, in the complete set found in Enhansoft Reporting, this report, Computer Recently Used Application Details, can either be directly executed, or you can drill through to it from the Recently Used Application Details report.
