You can define extra fields for your assets. This allows you to store extra information about the asset that you want to keep track of. You could for example keep track of visible damages per asset. Or maybe you want to store when the asset was purchased and added to your stock.

Asset fields can be managed by Project managers only. Regular Team members can change the values of the fields per individual asset.

When creating an asset field you can give it a name, description, and a type. Here's what each of these fields do:

Name - Will appear when you create or editing an asset. This should be a short form name to quickly identify what this asset field is about.

Description - Will appear below the name when creating or editing an asset. This can contain a bit longer explanation on how the asset field should be used by you and your team.

Type - The type of the asset dictates what kind of values you can enter into the field when creating or editing an asset. Currently supported types are single line, multi line or date.

Deleting an asset field

An asset field can be permanently deleted when you have no use for it anymore.

Deleting a field will also permanently delete all stored values for that field on individual assets. So make sure you don't accidentally delete an important asset field with all kinds of important information.

Steps

  1. In your Firmhouse project, go to Settings > Asset fields in the sidebar.
  2. Click Asset fields under the Assets heading in the sidebar.
  3. Click Delete for the field you want to delete.

The deleted field will not appear on asset detail pages and on the asset edit pages anymore.
