Software Version Charts

Chart Software

Using the ‘Not Latest Version’ report methodology, here are some chart reports to make a software compliance dashboard that quickly shows you the different software versions, as well as the latest version installed. I will provide one for a Version/Major/Minor scenario (like Zoom – 5.17.11) as well as a standard Version/Major/Minor/Hotfix scenario (Like Chrome). You can take these reports and simply pick the appropriate versioning report and change the application name to what you want to see. You can find more info about this topic in Pro Tips 52.

To use this in a chart widget, prefix the report name with “Chart:” and select it in the chart report widget found on a dashboard.
