Firstly, new Job Sub-Types under the "Hardware – Non-Warranty" type to provide more information than the existing 'Replacement Device' type. These new sub-types would be:

  • Device Stolen
  • Device Lost

Secondly, an extra field for Devices to complement 'DecommissionedDate' – perhaps 'DecommissionedReason.'
So that metrics could be collected, this field would map to a well-defined list (as is the case with job types/sub-types). When decommissioning a device, a drop-down-list would ask for the reason. That list would be:

  • Damaged
  • Donated
  • End of Life (default)
  • Lost
  • Sold
  • Stolen

Current thinking is that 'End of Life' would be the default – and would be entered for all previously-decommissioned devices during database migration when the field is added.

  • Add Sub-Types
  • Add Decommissioned Reason & UI
