    Very nice. Must create custom data fields. Bios Date, date-time value.

    Be aware, some BIOS updates do not update the released date. For instance testing with a Dell Optiplex 3050, the version of bios changes but the date does not.

    I guess there more to it that simply importing the procedure? If so, I would like those instructions.

    Hi Samuel,

    You'll need a custom field added called 'BIOS Date', and then when you run the procedure, it adds the data in there.

    Possible to change date format to something sort-able? An all numeric date wold be better. Like 01-31-2020

    I figured it out. I removed the day from the string. Now it sorts properly.

    ([datetime]::ParseExact(((Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_BIOS).ReleaseDate).Substring(0,14),'yyyyMMddHHmmss', $null)).ToString('yyyy-MM')
