You will probably have noticed the 'Remark' column in Snow Licence Manager when you are viewing a list of applications associated with a computer and may have wondered what all the small coloured remarks mean? 

 

Remarks are another example of the excellent Software Recognition Service (SRS) we provide here at Snow and they essentially take the guess work out of application recognition and provide useful information on discovered applications - eg - if you see a it means this application is part of a Software Bundle such as Microsoft Office as in the screen grab below - conversely this is also useful information to find applications that have not been installed as part of a bundle and may have been installed using the wrong media? (eg - you are licensed for Office but have installed Word as a standalone copy)

You can hover over the remark when you are in the SLM Portal for a brief description but just in case you want to see the full list and details of what they mean I have enclosed the table taken from the current Snow Licence Manager User guide
