Hi Todd,

thanks a lot for your answer. I need a documentation about the settings and the
possibilities to change AssetTracker to fit my needs.

I tested some things with AssetTypes and found out that it is not possible to
generate two entrys with the same name. So i want to have not only one customer
use this system, it´s not really good if one customer can see the
software/hardware of the other one when i use one AssetType for Software /
Hardware Parts.

Next i search for the possibility to set own statuses and so on and so on.

Do you have sth for me that can explain that ?

Name is the name of the asset, not the user who’s assets they are.

You can either use a custom field for the asset’s user, or do what we
did which is uses the Owner field for the user.

Hi Michael,

So it´s necessary to make a really deep structure , right ? Like this :

Clients Company 1 Clients Company 2

                         Software / Parts for all Company´s (Office etc.)

Software / Parts only for Company1 Software/Parts
onlys for Company2
(Specials) (Specials)

.
.
.
.
.
.

So maybe, if i want to split Software and Hardware in own Asset Types it´s
necessary to set up 3 - 4 or more Types for one company ??!!

Well,

We only have the one company, so I can’t really speak to that. I do set
up Library Units and Locations custom fields to track which unit has the
asset and where it’s located.

You shouldn’t have to make software, workstation, monitor, printer, etc.
for each company. You just make the types. And the a company custom
field. If you want to search for software at company1 then you make
"type = ‘software’" and “Company = ‘Company1’” your query. Think tags,
not folders.
