Managing IT Asset Preferences

The My IT Asset Preferences page (Administration > IT Asset Management Settings > My IT Asset Preferences) enables you to personalize the interface of IT Asset Management by defining personal preferences such as time zone and currency. Until you define your own preferences, your IT Asset Management account uses the default settings defined on the Defaults page (Administration > IT Asset Management Settings > Defaults). The My IT Asset Preferences page enables you to customize the following settings:

Time Zone
Task Monitoring


You can change your language by making a selection from the Preferred language drop-down list and then clicking Save. The following languages are supported:


Note:Changing a preferred language does not translate any of the existing or incoming data that IT Asset Management collects. For example, an inventory record created in English displays in English, regardless of your language preference.


You can change your currency by making a selection from the Preferred currency drop-down list and clicking Save. Only currencies that are active on the Defaults page display in this list.

Note:IT Asset Management represents all currency values in the reference currency (typically the default currency as set in the Defaults page while producing reports. For this conversion, it uses the exchange rates defined in the current Exchange Rate Set (or, if none has been created yet, the default Exchange Rate Set). For more information, see the Currency Settings and Exchange Rates.

Time Zone

You can change your time zone by making a selection from the Preferred time zone drop-down list and clicking Save. IT Asset Management uses this time zone to translate the global time settings into your time zone equivalents.

Task Monitoring

You can choose which system tasks, if any, you monitor by selecting one or more check boxes associated with the Monitor the following tasks field and clicking Save.

All the tasks you choose to monitor are included in the status indicator, located in the right hand side of the navigation bar:

The status indicator changes color as follows:

Blue (animated)—Tasks are running
Blue (static)—There are no running tasks
Orange—Tasks completed, but errors have occurred when tasks are running
Red—One or more tasks have failed.

If an error or failure occurs, hover over the status indicator to see a tool tip with more information. For example:

Tasks in progress: 3

Tasks with errors: 1

Failed tasks: 1

To investigate an error or failure, click the status indicator to go to the System Tasks page.

You can also choose the time window from which the most recent result for your selected task(s) is/are merged into the monitor lights display. For example, if you select 15 days, only the results of the most recent run of each selected task(s) within the last 15 days are included. If a task failed 20 days ago, it does not trigger a red warning light (even if it has not run or succeeded since), because it is outside your selected time window. On the other hand, because only the most recent run of each task is included, a failure 12 days ago followed by a success 6 days ago does not contribute to a red warning light either, since the most recent run was successful.

Use these settings to configure your personal quick check monitor to your liking; and, because these settings have no impact on the System Tasks page, always click through to that listing for full details.
