About Asset Items

Asset item records are created by either entering information manually or by applying audit records returned by the automated discovery process (TrakPC/TrakMac). When creating records manually, simply enter the information desired in the appropriate fields. You’ll want to establish values for your Lookup Tables before you actually begin to enter item records.

If you implement TrakPC/TrakMac, be aware that automated audit information may overwrite any manual record entries. Asset items will be updated when a match is found on at least 4 of 6 values (listed above in step four).

When the Asset Management menu option is selected, the Asset Summary page will appear as the main page for this option. The asset summary lists total counts for each Asset Type defined in your Asset Types lookup table, thus providing a quick overview of the status of your current inventory. Each total value is a link which will display a listing of the selected asset type.
