Assets in Projects

Assets determine billing for the project, and can be tracked through Asset Statuses
They can be assigned on a cross-business basis, to include local sub-hires.

Permissions Required


Adding Assets to Projects

Assets are assigned using the Asset Search functionality.
To select the project you are assigning assets to, either use the + Add Assets button on the project toolbar, or select a project when searching assets. You can also assign all assets to the project, using the add all button.

Select Project on the Project information page Shopping buttons are highlighted: Add All Assets to Project in blue, Add assets to this project in red

Asset List

The Asset list shows all assets associated with the project, organised by Category and Asset Type.

Asset List functions

There are a number of functions that can be used to alter project asset properties.
Some require additional permissions so may not be visible to you.

Project asset functions
Assignment Comment | Discount | Custom Price | Set asset Statuses | Swap Asset | Remove Asset | Expand List


Assignment comments can be used to highlight specific things about the asset assignment.
For example, requesting a particular DMX address or gel colour.

Discount & Custom Price

By default, AdamRMS calculates hire costs based on the asset's value.
You can override the hire price in two ways:

  1. Discounts
    • Set price based on a percentage of the asset's cost
  2. Custom Price
    • Set price using any value

Set Status for assets

This function allows you to set the asset status for selected assets or all assets (if no assets are selected) associated with the project.

Swap Assets

If you have multiple assets of the same type, you may want to swap assets to the ones picked rather than finding the exact asset listed by the Project Manager.
This function lists available assets to the project, and you can select a new asset based on the asset Tag.

Remove an asset from the project.
