Add a NOTE to each Audit?

Nov 2, 2016 at 10:12 PM
It would be nice to search the Audit_Master table for a Note/Reference that was added at the time WinAudit was run from the commandline or gui.

Is this feature already available?

I could see adding notes like "Update", "New Install", "Troubleshooting Outlook", then later comparing the audit for "New Install" to "Troubleshooting Outlook" and get a list of all the changes, updates and other software installed.

Another useful item to have would be which parameters were used for that audit, so I can look only at audits that did a software inventory or only full audits.

Thanks for such a great program.

Hi mattreade,

Unfortunately, that's not possible at present. WinAudit is a small utility with a simple database design using fixed stored procedures. To add a new column would require WinAudit to query then possibly modify the database's meta-data before attempting to post a record depending on the presence of a user specified message/note. With hindsight that would have been a good idea, I'll add that to the TODO feature list for the next design change.
