I use WebTracks "Peripherals" section sort of like an inventory for equipment we have.

This is where I put things like new Cisco switches, routers, etc. when we purchase them, and I will put the the "Warranty mo." as number of months left until a purchased Cisco SmartNet contract expires.

I will also set the "Expires" as the date for when the SmarNet contract expires.

Is there a way I could be emailed a notification when these things are going to expire so that I will know they need to be renewed? Maybe like 30, 60, or 90 days ahead of time or something.

Or is there a better way to do this that is already in Webtracks?

Thanks.

Hi,

There is not currently an automated way to do this.  For now I would recommend creating a report for this.  The report can be filtered on the date (in the report design--report fields tab--report filter section).  For example in the filter section....

Choose the field 'peripheral.Expires'
Choose the comparer 'In'
For the value you can choose...
'This Week'
'This Month'
'This Quarter'
'This Year'

These values are dynamically updated based on the current date.

I will leave this post in the suggestions section to have the ability to automatically email these reports without having to manually run them.  If this feature is implemented i will update this post.

Thanks for the suggestion.

An automated way to do this has been implemented in Web Tracks 2017.  You can setup any report or graph for Auto Delivery. 

For example you could create a report that shows items with maintenance expiring 'Next Month'.  You could then schedule this report to run on the 15th of every month.
