I am trying to relate my computer inventory to my printer assets.  I would like if I click on a computer and scroll to the bottom where it says related assets, for all the printers installed on that machine to show up as a link to take me right to that printer.  And Vise versa, if I click on a printer, I would like all the computers that have that printer installed to show up in the rerlated assests field. Thanks.

Sorry I meant to add, I am trying to do this on Dell KACE K1000 Management Appliance

I am not aware of any way of doing exactly what you specify.  The only automated link between Inventory and Asset is for the Computer Asset type.

Albeit very manual, you could tie the Computer Assets with your Printer Assets.  This would likely be a multi-select on the Computer Asset type.  The selection would show the printers for that computer.  The printer record would have the computers listed under related assets.  If changes are rare, this could work.  If changes are frequent, this could be unwieldy.
