I have some laptops that are in a Asset Group. These laptops are borrowed for presentations , or work in travel etc. What I need is an notification (alert or email or report etc) that can notify me when the borrowed time/date has expired so I can call the user to return the laptop.

Thank you

To achieve the behaviour that you are after we would recommend using an asset custom field to give in a date.

We can then create a report where we give back only the assets who have a 'Return Date' value that is lower than the current date with the following code, Where tblAssetCustom.Custom1 > Convert(nvarchar(10),GetDate(),103). Do make sure that the date given in follows the DD/MM/YYYY format.

Instructions for adding this report to your Lansweeper installation can be found here. If you are interested in building or modifying reports, we do recommend:
  • Reviewing some SQL tutorials, as the Lansweeper report builder is a standard SQL editor. If you know SQL, you know how to build Lansweeper reports as well. This seems like a good tutorial.
  • Making use of our database dictionary, which explains in great detail what each database table and field stores. More information on the dictionary can be found here.


Code:
Select Top 1000000 tblAssets.AssetID,
  tblAssets.AssetName,
  tsysAssetTypes.AssetTypename,
  tsysAssetTypes.AssetTypeIcon10 As icon,
  tblAssets.IPAddress,
  tblAssetCustom.Custom1 As DueDate,
  tblAssets.Lastseen,
  tblAssets.Lasttried
From tblAssets
  Inner Join tblAssetCustom On tblAssets.AssetID = tblAssetCustom.AssetID
  Inner Join tsysAssetTypes On tsysAssetTypes.AssetType = tblAssets.Assettype
Where tblAssetCustom.Custom1 < Convert(nvarchar(10),GetDate(),103) And
  tblAssetCustom.Custom1 Is Not Null And tblAssetCustom.Custom1 != '' And
  tblAssetCustom.State = 1

Thank you for help Nick, but right now I have some issues with this SQL querry. If I enter a date in the valid format date MM/DD/YYYY will show me the laptops in the report. The issue is that is showing all the laptops , and this was supposed to show me only the laptops that has the date expired or at least the same.

We did a small test and found that the date should be added in DD/MM/YYYY format instead of MM/DD/YYY and then it did work correctly in our environment. We would recommend doing the same for your assets.
