The process of adding new assets on the mobile device is almost identical to how it is done on the web. To begin, click Identify. Next you need to choose if you want to "Identify Single Asset", "Identify Multiple Assets" or "Mass Update Assets".
Identify Single Asset
The information that you enter for the asset will be the same as if you were doing it on the web. The main difference is the order in which the fields are displayed. Asset Types and Asset Type Groups work a little differently on the mobile. Firstly they appear at the bottom of the page. Secondly you can select the asset type group to narrow down your options when you are choosing an asset type. Once you have filled out the necessary fields and selected an asset type click next to proceed to the next page. On this page you will be able to enter all of the custom attribute that have been configured for this asset type. Once you have filled in the necessary fields click next. The next screen will allow you to enter any comments about this asset, and as before click next when you have completed that. Once you have clicked next you will be presented with four options. The only option that you will be seeing for the first time is "Go back and make changes" and as it suggests it allows you to go back and make changes. Once you are satisfied with the information you entered either "save" or "save and start event". If you save it will take you to the asset summary page but if you save and start event it will ask you to chose an event type so you can perform an event.
Identify Multiple Assets
When you identify multiple assets on the handheld the first screen you see is identical to the first one when identifying a single asset with the exclusion of the identifiers (serial, RFID & reference). Just like before once you have filled in the appropriate fields click next. The same goes for the asset details screen. Fill in the information and click next. The comment page is also the same so when you have entered the necessary information click next. This next page is where you can enter the identifiers. You need to at least enter the serial number and then press "Create" if you are going to be attaching RFID tags then you can check the box marked "Create on Scan". This will automatically create the entry once you have scanned the RFID tag with the reader but you must have a Serial number entered first. Once you have created your assets click next to proceed. Like before you can save now, go back and make changes or cancel the process. NOTE: You cannot save and start an event on multi-add on the mobile.
Mass Update Assets
Mass updating assets is where you select a number of assets that you want to make the exact same changes to. In Field ID Mobile you can only mass update the location field. When you click Mass Update you will be presented with a Find box. Here you will either enter the serial or reference number of the assets (one asset at a time) that you want to mass update, or you can scan the RFID tag (if applicable). Click next when you have added all the assets you want to update and at the next screen you can enter the location that you want to assign these assets to. Click "Mass Update Now" to make the change and the assets will be removed from the following screen once it is complete.
