RTA Web - Adding an Asset using a Template

🥳 Use templates when adding assets of the same make and model. This greatly speeds up the process of adding assets into the system because all the data from the template asset, including PM schedules and warranties, is copied to the asset being added.

The only information that doesn't come across from the template is the information unique to each asset such as meter readings, VIN/ serial numbers, license plate numbers, and PM histories.

To use another asset as a template for one being added, the desired template vehicle must already exist in the RTA software. Refer to Adding an Asset for information on adding an asset.

Does the template asset have its PM Schedules and Warranty Tracking set up already? If not, be sure that these items are included to make the most of the software and help you save money. Refer to Asset Warranty Set Up and Preventive Maintenance Schedules for more information.
