When you say configuration, what do you mean exactly? My guess is that you mean maybe RAM? or something similar? If so, you would use business logic to do this.

Create a rule under the computer object using the following setup:

Event: On Modified
Criteria: RAM has been changed
Action: Email Notification

This will send an email notification to the person of your choice when the computer record is modified. You can also have it send emails when HDD Free goes below a certain level.

If I missed the mark on what you were asking, let me know.

And how to make the notification about all changes at once? For example, i want to get an emeil notifications with full information about maked changes?
sample:
"RAM was changed from 1024mb to 512mb on computer34
Program Acdsee was deleted on computer5
Computer34 name was changed to computer35
Windows license key was changed from jrhierht4543h4jk54h to jr84hgj4r78ru43ry73 on computer 76
"

In other words, how trace all changes without checking for each position separately?

I took a look at that application, but it seems that's more of a What's Up Gold type of application where it monitors uptime and notifies if a computer is up/down, etc. Maybe I missed it's abiliy to notify based on the changes you mentioned. I looked at it only for a few minutes.

As for the different items you'd want to be notified on, you wouldn't be able to have it notify you with a report what changed. You would only be able to have it notify you based on each change.

At the same time you could always have a very generic email that goes to you advising you that either RAM, Hard Drive, Software, etc was changed and you can then run the report to find that information if you wanted to.

I think it is important function of similar programs. It would be good if it has been improved.
In current version of program, history of changes maked is very bad. It is dificult to work with it, and it has many empty fileds.
Is it will be improved?

In this program there is a inventory module in which the notification is realized.
