Asset Types

The Asset Type allows you to create a list of company-issued property that is distributed to contingent and SOW workers such as badges and laptops.

Asset types allow you to keep track of company assets that are distributed to workers, such as laptops, mobile devices, or any company-owned equipment that is required for the worker to perform their duties.

Users can manually add assets to workers by selecting ‘+Add Assets’ from the ‘Rates & Assets’ tab on the worker record.

If Assets are assigned to a worker, they appear on the Rates & Assets tab of the worker's record.

Navigating the Asset Type Admin Object

Select the Asset Type admin object from the Worker section of the admin menu to view a list of asset types associated to WorkingNet’s tenant.

Create an Asset Type

WorkingNet provided their contingent worker Joe with a cell-enable tablet. The tablet was assigned an Asset Type so that SAP Fieldglass could track its allocation to Joe.

Here’s how you would create and assign the Asset Type to the tablet assigned to Joe.
