Give us the ability to download and upload fixed asset databases

dliddle
Adding/correcting items in bulk is quite time consuming as each individual record must be accessed for information entry. Having the ability to update the database via a spreadsheet or CVS file would alleviate the much of the pain of record correction/entry. Not only would it save time for the customer, but it should also help reduce requests to your server and network traffic, as page requests would be reduced (albeit slightly overall, but still reduced.)

I understand that this ability may be restricted in order to help protect a customer from themselves, but if the contents of the databases are the customer's responsibility, then why not allow them to make changes in bulk if they want? Perhaps being able to restrict the ability through permissions would allow the prevention of untrustworthy users from uploading files.

Hi! We appreciate your feedback regarding updating assets through importing. This is a feature we are developing into our new product version. The bulk updating feature for assets will be expanded to include more fields and importing will be a part of that.  At this time, we haven't discussed whether this would be a Q Ware support function (importing) or if it would be a privilege for users.

Thanks,

Ryan N.
