Defining an Asset Type

Objectives

After completing this lesson, you will be able to:

  • Create an Asset Type in SAP Fieldglass.

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.

3To view the details of an asset type, select an appropriate link in the Code column.

Asset Type Details page

An asset type record requires few characteristics: just the asset’s code, name, and an optional description. Since it is a data object that is used primarily to establish associations, the associations tree displays the important information about the asset. In this case, the Workers tile links to the page listing the workers who were assigned that asset.

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.
