Asset Master List Overview

The asset list displays all assets that have been added to the RTA software. This list can be viewed as a whole or can be sorted/adjusted for specific views. The ability to sort and customize columns as well as to export the master list are available.

Refer to Master List Functions TOC for instructions.

Refer to Adding an Asset for instructions to add assets to RTA.

This article will cover the various columns that can appear on the Asset Master List as well as actions that can be taken while viewing the list.

Searching the Asset Master List

The search bar at the top of the master list will allow the user to search by specific datasets.

Search does not exclude fields and may have multiple results. For example, if an asset is numbered as 1234 and that sequence also appears in the plate number on another asset, the system will return both results

To search for an asset number or any other applicable asset data from the list, do the following:

  1. Enter the data to search in the search bar

  2. Press Enter

  3. The list will re-display with all the line items that contain a matching result

Refer to Customizing Lists for instructions on using filters.

Columns appearing on the Asset Master List

There are 51 columns available for display on the Asset Master List. Most of these fields are driven by the information that has been added to the asset file. If it is not entered, it will not display on the list. Users can use the “Column Chooser” option to remove or add columns from those four. Refer to Customizing Master List Columns for instructions on doing so if needed. The description of each is listed below.
