DS Inventory Released


We are proud to announce that DeltaScripts Inventory Manager – or DS Inventory for short – is released. This is our first release on a new platform and it will be the foundation of our software to come. DS Inventory Manager is a very powerful asset and inventory software that lets you add any inventory of any type into a MariaDB-database. You install the program at a web host and your entire IT-department or other people may use it at the same time.

We have targeted it a bit against IT-departments, but it has unlimited support for extra fields, so it will work for most uses related to inventory management. IP Address list or software management is other uses for it.

We recommend you to create locations, categories, type of equipment (laptop, server, ipad etc) and a few tags before you add stuff. This is because it will pre filled values that is useful.

Creating Categories

The software should be fairly easy to use. The first time you log in, we suggest that you first create a category. A category can be whatever you want it to be, but for our example, we plan to have Desktop, Laptop and different categories like that.

Creating our first category

  1. Click Categories in the left menu as shown on illustration below (1) - a form showing all your categories (if any) in a list to the right.
  2. Click the button Create new.
  3. Type the name of the new category and push Submit - you will get a confirmation.
  4. Done.
 
Creating inventory, brands, locations, IP-address, people, tags etc. will follow the same path just described. Menu is always to the left and you always add a new inventory, category, brand etc. by pushing the Create new that is to the top right of the list everywhere. Easy? Yes, we hope so!

Introduction to tabs

Just to start easy, I will show you how tabs works. In this example, I just click pencil beside your category - just beside the red trash-can symbol. If you click on the tab named "Page 2", shown with the red number 1 in the picture below, you will get a lot of options in most screens. In this one, you just type in a font-awesome name and it will display a nice icon on the first page after you login. Just something to think about.

Creating inventory

Creating Inventory

  1. Click the menu item Inventory to the left (indicated by red number 1 below).
  2. Click + Create new, indicated by the red number 2.
     
     
  3. Now you are in a very powerful place! Please note that you have 5 pages on forms that you can optional fill out. Nothing is mandatory. If you have tags, just start typing the pre-setup tags you have added in advance. Tags needs to be already added before you can choose them.In Page 2, Page 3 etc, you choose brand and other useful information.

Extra Fields

You can add unlimited so called Pages and Fields throughout our Inventory Manager application. The way we have programmed it, it is very database friendly so that you will not get a slow database after adding many fields. Please note that you do need to be careful when using this function, as it works directly against your database. This is because we want it user friendly and fast. For the more technical people: Pages = Table in the mysql-terminology. Fields = Columns. You can add both from our application, but in this section we only deal with the Fields/Columns.

Customize a list - like the main Inventory

  1. Click Settings and then Fields - so you will get the opening screen similar to the screenshot below.
  2. Let us say you want to hide the Brand field from showing up in your main list - just click the orange "invent"-button to filter the fields on only the inventory-table. Now click the pencil-symbol beside invent_brand_id and remove the "List sort"-number in the form.
  3. Click Submit.
  4. Now, the Brand-information will not be shown in the list on the front-page. It will still be there, just not in the list.

Database and extra fields

Each field you add is stored in a very normalized database-model. This means that your database will look good and easy to read even after hundred of thousands of records. In many other solutions, extra fields is stored in a limited way – in our solution, your extra-field is stored just like native coding would do it. Click here to see a screenshot of the DB-field-editor.

Language friendly

All strings in our inventory-sofware are stored from admin-area and you can override all of our translations – or just some – and search on them. When we release new translations, your own will be kept intact as long as you wish. If you are happy with our language, you can be kept updated about new strings and auto-updated.

IP Address List Manager
