How Can I Find Applications that Were Installed in the Last Few Days on Target Machines?

Purpose:

You wish to create a Report of any applications that have been installed xx days ago in your environment.

 

Resolution:

There are a few ways to write a Basic Report to find this information, but we’ll focus on a simple one. (Note: while you can create this in PDQ Inventory Free Mode, you won’t have the ability to save the report without a Pro or Enterprise license.)

 

  1. Add the columns you want to view in the report. In this case we are looking for the Computer Name, Application Name, and the Application Install Date.



  1. While there are multiple ways to set the Filters for this report, for this example we are using the Comparison of Between 5 Days Ago and 1 Second Ago.

  1. Once you have the Columns and Filters set, you are able to choose the computers you want to run this against by clicking Select Collection Source. In addition, if you have an Enterprise license, you can choose to Attach Auto Reports to email the report to you automatically.



Attached: Applications installed in the last 5 Days.xml (this Report was built using Inventory 9. Please be advised this report might not work with earlier version of Inventory). Download the xml file, open PDQ Inventory, and select File > Import. Navigate to the Applications Installed in the last 5 Days.xml and click Open.
