Warning: If you are removing a vehicle asset from service, you might consider renaming it rather than deleting it, such as adding "-retired" after its former name ("103-retired"). This way, all its data history is easy to access using Tracking - Asset History (via the new name), whereas if you delete it, you will only be able to see its past data using reports.


We recommend deleting a vehicle asset only if it was added by mistake. You can more readily delete other types of assets whose movement history is perhaps less necessary for you to track.

 

To delete an asset, follow these steps:


  1. Click  >> Admin >> Assets.
     
    The Admin - Assets screen will appear and display the Manage Assets list.
       
  2. If the asset is in a subgroup of the one you have selected in the Group Chooser, click Include Subgroups at the bottom of the screen.
     
  3. Scroll down to the asset you need to delete or filter the Asset Name column to find it. (See Sorting and Filtering Column Data if needed.)
     
  4. In the row of the asset, click  under Actions.
    Note: Alternatively, you can select the asset's check box and then click at the bottom of the screen. You actually can delete multiple assets this way (by selecting all of their check boxes before clicking ).
    A warning dialog box will be displayed. This is how it will appear if you clicked  in the asset's row:
      
    And this is what it will look like if you clicked multiple assets and then clicked  at the bottom of the screen:
     
    Note: If a device is assigned to the asset, the confirmation dialog box will also tell you that the LMU will be dissociated from the asset (and that the unit itself won't be deleted).
  5. Click Confirm.
