Asset Category Tags

Create Asset Category Tags to Further Characterized School Property

Asset Category Tags are defined by the school. They are optional additional identifying characteristics. They include descriptors that will help you to further categorize assets (school property) within a category.

or instance, you may have a category called iPads. For this category you could add the following tags:

  • 16GB
  • 32GB
  • 64GB
  • A5
  • A5x
  • Wi-Fi Only
  • Wi-Fi + Cellular

Once you've created tags, those tags can be associated with individual assets in the system to better define the asset among other assets in the category.

Here are a few more examples:

  • Category Name: Baseball Uniform

Category Tags:

  • Pants
  • Jersey
  • Size S
  • Size M
  • Size L
  • Size XL
  • Red
  • White
  • Category Name: Athletic Equipment

Category Tags:

  • Baseball
  • Basketball
  • Soccer
  • Football
  • Tennis
  • Lacrosse
  • Category Name: Textbooks

Category Tags:

  • History
  • Chemistry
  • Fiction
  • Poetry
  • Writing
  • Literature
  • Composition
  • Biology
  • Category Name: A/V Equipment

Category Tags:

  • Projector Cart
  • TV / DVD Player Cart
  • CD / MP3 Player
  • Digital Camcorder
  • Digital Camera
  • Web-Cam

You can make as many or as few categories of assets and asset category tags as are necessary for your school to best characterize and identify property.
