General tab

The General tab contains the basic information about the Computer.

The information is organized in the following sections:

  • Upper untitled section - displays the Computer ID, status, name, the text description, and the date when it was "installed" or deployed.

  • Categorization section - shows the type and category of the Computer. The lists of Computer types and categories are configured by your Alloy Navigator Express administrator.

  • Ownership Information section - allows you to associate the Computer with the Person who is responsible for the Computer and also with their Organization and Location. When the Organization, Owner, or Location is chosen, the field label becomes hyperlinked. To view organization, person, or location details, click the link. The object record will appear in a fly-out preview form. To access its full form, click the hyperlinked field label with the wheel mouse button, or click the Edit icon in the fly-out preview form. The object record will be opened in a new tab.

  • Unnamed section - displays the Computer's picture. For details on managing the picture, see Adding, changing, or removing pictures for Computers and Inventory Item records.

  • Identification section - specifies the Computer's name and serial number. The fields in this section are auto-filled for the Computers created during audit data upload from Network Inventory.

  • Product section - specifies the Computer's manufacturer, model, and product name. The fields in this section are auto-filled for the Computers created during audit data upload from Network Inventory. The Computer's manufacturer can be chosen from the Brands reference table. When the manufacturer is specified, clicking the Manufacturer link opens the selected Manufacturer in the separate window.

The General tab may also display various user-defined fields in an additional section if your Alloy Navigator Express administrator has configured them accordingly. The default name of this section is Custom Data, although your Alloy Navigator Express administrator may have renamed this section.

NOTE: User-defined fields can appear also on the Custom Data (this is the default name of the tab; it can be renamed by your Alloy Navigator Express administrator).
