The Asset Management module page

Before we start setting up Asset Management, let’s take a look at how it is structured. You might have worked with a few of TOPdesk’s other modules already. If so, you will notice some differences in how the module page is set up.

The module page consists of two widgets: Asset Management and Information about Asset migration. The Asset Management widget contains buttons to the various sections of the module. The biggest part of setting up and maintaining Asset Management happens within one of these sections. The second widget gives a few tips where to learn more about migrating to Asset Management, in case you already have used Configuration Management. Learn more about migration in Migrating objects to Asset Management.

Sections of Asset Management

The Asset Management widget on the module page contains the following buttons:

  • Asset overview: view all your assets in a filterable list. This is also the section where you can create individual assets.

  • Template Designer: create and edit templates for your assets. Use this section to determine what your asset cards should look like.

  • Stock overview: design and create Stock cards, used for registering assets that are in your organization’s inventory.

  • Stock totals: see how many assets of each type are available in stock.

  • Asset actions: actions for Asset Management are currently configured and managed in a separate actions section, instead of via the Action Management module.

  • Asset migration: migrate your data from the old Configuration Management module to the newer Asset Management.

  • Asset Type Report: a reporting functionality for Asset Management.

remark

Unlike other modules in TOPdesk, Asset Management does not have a settings page under Module Settings. All relevant settings are integrated in the various sections, predominantly in the Template Designer.
