This article discusses some of the common activities when managing assets:


When creating new asset, ensure that its asset type is already created in Loc8 via the web browser.

Scan asset

Using the barcode of an asset is the quickest way to:

  • View all the tasks associated with that asset the new step
  • Record a new asset in Loc8, followed by creating a task for the new asset.

The Scan asset option turns on the camera on your mobile device. Focus and hold on the barcode. Once the code is captured, its corresponding asset is displayed. If you are scanning a new asset, see Create asset (link to be updated when 'Finished') to add into Loc8.

Search asset

As an alternative to scanning the barcode of an asset, you can also look up an asset from a list that has already been recorded in Loc8.

If the asset you are searching for is not yet added in Loc8, you can add the asset yourself. See Create asset (link to be updated when 'Finished') for more information.

Create asset

You can create a new asset in Loc8 using either the Scan asset or the Search asset option.

 In the New asset window, fill in the asset details and save. 

NOTE: Please see that the asset type to which the new asset belongs to is already created in Loc8 via the web browser. 

Once you have filled in the new asset details, click the tick icon on the top-right corner of your mobile screen.

Change asset status

You can update the status of an asset to represent its actual physical state, for example if an asset is currently operating, it's status would be Active, and when it is out of order, the status would be changed to Inactive

Move asset

If an asset has been physically moved across locations or now is a subcomponent of another asset, you can easily update the asset associations in Loc8 by moving the asset under the new parent site or asset.

Tap YES to confirm the relocation of the asset. 

As informed by the message, if a maintenance schedule exists for the asset type this particular asset belongs to, and that schedule is active in the parent site, then the same schedule will automatically apply on the relocated asset.
