When reviewing application metering data in the console you may notice that the last used date is earlier than the installed date. For example, Last Used Date: 5/19/2022 and the Install Date is 5/23/22. How is this possible?
This can happen when the software vendor has received a security patch. For example, Microsoft Visio. If the software is patched, the inventory data returned may show the Install Date as a more recent date. This is working as designed and should happen with software that receives security updates.
