Asset Import

Level: System Administrator


The Asset Import is used to import asset data such as storage, lockers, and car parks. It can also be used to import other asset types like computer equipment that belongs to a person or a team.

This import can create new assets or update existing assets if they are referenced within the import file. You can also allocate people to assets using this import, which is achieved by including an Employee Number in the import file against an asset.

Asset imports are non-syncing, for example, if you have assets A, B, C and import C and D then you will end up with 4 assets.
