Feature Req: Category for Hardware

1Password has become my one-stop place for all critical information. You've done a great job of enhancing the 1Password database capabilities to include everything from bank accounts, social security, passports, and software registrations. The only thing missing that I wish for is a 'Hardware' category. I need a place to keep hardware serial numbers (lot of computer equipment, but also household items like bikes, appliances etc.), purchase and warranty data. I suppose I could fashion one of my own out of the Secure Notes category, but that seems awkward as there is other non-hardware stuff there.

So please will you make a 'Hardware' category in the next release?

Thank you.

    I totally agree - would also like ones for stuff like Insurance policies, frequent flier accounts, etc. Or, how about just allowing users to create their own categories with fields of their choosing?

    Thanks for listening

    Hi @bobcarr@me.com‌ and @randy_m,

    Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts here! New categories for 1Password is always a hot topic in the forums. I'm happy to add your suggestions to the request in our internal tracker. :)

    I bought the Windows and IOS versions a week ago, and have been moving my items across from Keepass. The missing category for equipment/hardware as suggested is one of the shortcomings I've noted.

    I would like to know if this is coming, before risking to register many items in a substitute category, with the risk to have to do it again should the category be implemented.

    Thanks!

  • Hi @Tompro,

    Thanks for the feedback! I will add your vote for a hardware category. :)

    I'm not sure if/when we will be adding a category for hardware. I would recommend entering the information into a different category.

    ...and have been moving my items across from Keepass.

    In case you have not imported all of your Keepass items, these links may help:

  • @randy_m : I quite like the idea of having the ability to create your own categories with fields of your choosing. :smile:

    Please add my vote for both hardware category as well as the possibility to add own categories. These features sure are overdue ...
