Documents library

The Documents Library allows you to manage files, such as equipment manuals, warranty information, and safety procedures, from inside your Asset Essentials account. Documents in your document library can quickly be added to records throughout Asset Essentials such as Assets and Work Orders.

Adding folders

You can add as many file storage folders as you need to your Asset Essentials account. You can also delete, move, and edit those folders after they have been created. Keeping the folder structure well organized within the Document Library is essential to increasing efficiency when searching for specific documents.

  • Click on the Admin menu icon then select Documents Library.
  • Select the name of an existing folder in the folder tree on the left side of the page. This will be the location of the new folder.
  • Click on the Folder button and select New.
  • Enter the Name of the folder and click OK.

  • If you selected URL from the Select Type drop down, enter the URL and the display Name. *Note: We recommend using URLs to link to user manuals or images, if available, instead of uploading the document directly to the library to maximize the available storage.
