Select Which Fields to Display in Fixed Asset Browse

Asset Maintenance often involves working on one asset at a time to make any necessary changes. In order to find each asset, a row and column grid view of the data is very helpful. Bassets eDepreciation includes a very powerful drill-down feature to easily view detail behind any summary displayed on the Home Page. The format of this detail display is defined by the user with the Column Selection form:

Select Fields 1

On this form, you have the ability to select as many columns as you would like from the available list. The order in which you select each column will determine the display on the asset maintenance form:

Select Fields 2

The Row and Column View provides the user with many options, including:

    • Select only the necessary data columns required for the analysis
    • Store column selections for later use
    • Perform sorts on any selected column
    • Use a Push Pin icon to freeze a column in place when data is scrolled left or right
    • Perform additional data filtering
    • Export to an Excel spreadsheet
    • Print the grid

The browse feature is a great way to view and work with groups of assets. The column selection form offers complete flexibility to select the individual fields in the preferred order. To see more features of the browse, take a look at our earlier post here:

Dynamic Browse to View a Set of Fixed Asset Records

dynamic browseA spreadsheet is the perfect tool to “look” at fixed asset data. It easily organizes many rows and columns into a clean presentation of the key fields of information. Bassets eDepreciation includes many of the best features of a spreadsheet in our Dynamic Browse.

The Browse tab of the asset maintenance form provides the asset manager with a row and column view of the detail data. In addition, there is functionality to:

  • Sort: click on the title row of any column to sort all of the displayed data by the values in that column. The initial mouse click will create an ascending sort of the data. A second mouse click will create a descending sort of the data.
  • Filter: click the filter (funnel) icon to display a menu of options and column values to quickly limit the displayed rows to a smaller subset.
  • Move: “grab” any column to move it to another location.
  • Resize: any column can be narrowed or widened for better display.
  • Group By: drag one or more columns into the group area to easily collect  and sort the rows.
  • Export: click the export button to send all of the data to an Excel spreadsheet.
  • Print: click the print button to generate an ad hoc report of the selected data.

Mixing the excellent presentation qualities of a spreadsheet with the integrated controls of fixed asset software gives you the best of both worlds. Use the eDepreciation Browse feature to manage groups of fixed assets and then select individual records to perform any necessary maintenance tasks like edits, transfers or disposals.
