Child Asset (web)

    What it is

    Child assets are a way to link multiple assets together by assigning a hierarchy.

    Where I can find it

    When creating an asset, there is a drop down for “Parent”. This will list all assets that can be assigned as a parent to the child asset. In the bottom tabs, there is also a section “Child Assets” which will list all child assets of the asset you are currently viewing.


    Required licensing

    Any account with an Asset Management license and the proper permissions

    Use case

    A lifting and rigging company rents out cranes to construction crews. They track the entire crane for their customer, but also want to track each piece for when they need to be replaced or re-certified. By making each piece of the crane a child asset to the parent crane asset, they can do that.
