Clone an Asset

Introduction

Cloning an asset essentially makes a complete copy of that asset. Cloning an asset will eliminate the time wasted on adding each asset individually. For instance, if your team inspects 50 cranes, you can add one crane, enter all of the consistent information, and then clone the asset 49 times.

Most information entered into the cloned asset will be copied over to the new asset(s) including:

  • Location
  • Area
  • Asset Attributes
  • Description
  • Status
  • Urgent Note

A few things are not copied over when you clone an asset including:

  • ID1
  • ID2
  • Coordinates
  • Photo
