To locate an asset, either scroll through the list or enter part of its code or description into the Search key field. The list will update itself with only those assets matching the search text as you type. If you select a group, branch or department in the Groupings fields the list will limit itself to assets that match the grouping you've selected.

 

To view an asset's details, click on the appropriate tab. Part of the list is displayed on each tab, so you can continue searching through the list while viewing details if necessary.
