Adding New Software

Information

If you purchase new software, you have two options for adding it.


Steps

Method A:

  1. Add a record to the Software Titles table.

  2. Add a record to the Software Purchases table.

  3. Install the software on the PCs.

  4. Run an audit with TrakPC (or TrakMac if this is on a Mac), then apply the audit. This will create the registry record.

  5. Go to the Software Registry screen, and associate the registry record with the Software Title by selecting Copy to Titles.

Method B:

Method B is preferred if the description from the registry is appropriate to be the official software title. Method A is the one to use if the registry description is not worded in a way to be useful in software reporting.

  1. Install the software on the PCs.

  2. Run an audit with TrakPC, then apply the audit. This will create the registry record.

  3. Go to the Software Registry screen and select Copy to Titles.

  4. When the list populates, check the registry name of the software you want to create.

  5. Click Copy Records.

  6. Add a record to the Software Purchases table.
