Asset categories are managed by clicking on 'Asset categories' in the Master data section.

Figure 1: Asset categories

You can add a new asset category by clicking on the 'Name' field in the first row of the grid. You can optionally enter a description and then save the row. After saving, the new category is added to the grid.

You can edit an asset category by double clicking on the category. Now the row is in edit mode and you can edit the name and/or description.

You can delete an asset category by checking the checkbox in front of the category. An action bar is shown at the bottom of the screen. Click on delete and the category will be deleted from the grid. 

Asset categories are used on the following places in the application:

  • When adding an asset type in the settings, you need to link that asset type to an asset category.
  • The presets are ordered by asset categories.
  • When adding an object, you need to pick an asset type. These types are grouped based on the asset category they belong to.
  • The construction programme on your dashboard is summarized based on asset categories.
