Room Field

I wanted to add a "Room" UDF to get the room number from an environment
variable, but found that "Room" was already a field in the database.
Where is the application getting the information to fill the room field?

Thanks for any help

Open an option set, it can be the default or one that you have defined,
and look at the collection editor tab, open configure for "Workstation
Tab". You can see that ROOM is part of the workstation.

You can edit the room attribute and specify from where the information
should be pulled.

I have outlined how to edit fields like ROOM here.

Re: Room Field

Thanks! How can I get the Asset Tag field to pull that information from
the DELL nvram (cmos)?

It should do that automatically. ZAM is able to pull Dells asset tag.

You might should set the field to update when empty?

Oh wait... You are wanting the ROOM to be the Asset Tag?

Re: Room Field

Roger,

Is the asset tag value being populated on any machines?

Re: Room Field

Disregard the Asset Tag question. It is not filled in on the machines.
Thanks.

Re: Room Field

Jared, your link to the page on your website explaining customizing fields does not work.

Please advise. Thanks
