When I add packages to the self serve Sofware Library through the adminui on the K1000, the main item list shows the Notes.  When users go to the userui the notes are not shown which is a problem for me.

I have a bunch of scripts I am posting there for users to deploy their own printers and all they are seeing is the script name which is "Deploy printer X".  I would like them to see the notes that say "Deploys Printer X located on the 2nd floor reception area.  The printer is an HP Color Laserjet 2600"

Is this the way it is or is there a setting for that screen that allows the notes to be show?

The notes portion in the script doesn't come over as you are just selecting the script. If you want users to see your notes you are going to have to copy and paste them into one of the notes boxes when you create the software library.

  • Sorry, that is not exactly the issue. Even when I add the notes on the Software Library section they do not appear in the list view the users see when they select an item from the software library. This makes some items confusing.

    For instance, I am trying to let the users install their own printers. I have a naming convention Site-PRN-### so all my printers in the NY office are:


    I was hoping to show the notes so the selection shows something like:

    NYC-PRN-001 (HP Laserjet 4000 in Accounting)
    NYC-PRN-002 (Sharp 4100 MFP in Sales)
    NYC-PRN-003 (Brother MFP in Produciton)

    When I am view the list of selections in the Software Library from the Admin console it is perfect, but on the user console they only see script name, version, and MFG.
