jba,

Could you be a bit more specific? Machine Labels, Software Labels, Patch Labels, LDAP Labels, User Labels, etc.? r2

Some of the more common ones are below. You can also assign labels for specific purposes or if certain apps are installed on them

- machines -
1. Location
2. Department
3. OS
4. Desktop, Laptop or Server
5. Need to updates to SP1
6. Needs Reader 10.1.2
7. SQL server installed
8. CRM installed


- Users -

1. Location
2. Department
3. Helpdesk Ticket Owners
4. Position


there are just some idea but the though behind Labels is that they can be used for anything you may be wanting to do or organize.

Thanks for taking the time to reply.

One of the things I am uncertain about is how to filter Software Inventories.

Is it 'best' to use a hierarchy or it that OTT? For example ..

Adobe .. Label Group

Adobe Reader .. Label Group in above group

Adobe Reader 7.0 .. label in aboce group
Adobe Reader 8.1.0 .. label in aboce group
Adobe Reader 8.1.2 .. label in aboce group

Thanks again

jba,

it is best to think of Label Groups as merely a way to organise your labels, and not as a way to functionally "tier" them together. But overall your thoughts are on track.

Of course, it will depend on what your end goal is with these labels, and what you want to ultimately do with them. Do you mind sharing your plans?

jba,

Just to clarify something scottlutz mentioned, since it sounds like this is new territory to you: There is a difference between Label Groups and nested Labels. Grouping labels is simply a navigational aid, which may help when sorting and viewing your labels. Nested Labels, however, is actually using one (or more) label(s) to populate another label. I also agree with him, that it would be helpful if you could tell us what you need to accomplish, in order for us to best make suggestions. r2
