Creating objects in zenworks


I am a zenworks newbie an so far I love the product. I have been tasked to perform an full inventory of all IT assets my company. Do we have the ability to create dynamic objects in zenworks for asset management/tracking purposes. I would like to add all our monitors, phones, cell phones, and printers to zenworks for asset tracking. I would like to run reports on who has what and even transfer the assests from user to user. Is this possible? Any help would be appreciated.

Yes, you can create categories and sub-categories for the devices that are not already categorized. And you can add product names for those devices, so you have some consistancy in reporting.

Just remember that if you are going to enter that data into your database, you will need to have processes in place to manage that data effectively though change processes or it will not be reliable to report on in the future.

Monitors and printers should be captured already, but phones and cell phones would have to be added.
