This is the first task in the process of configuring asset management.

Assets are deployed to various locations throughout an enterprise. A location is assigned to each asset.

The following example shows how to create a location in Web Help Desk. The location will be assigned to an asset later in this guide.

  1. On the toolbar, click Setup.
  2. Click Locations > Locations and Rooms.
  3. Click New.
  4. Complete the remaining fields as needed and click Save.

    When you assign a location to an asset, you can generate preconfigured reports that count the number of assets for each location. In this scenario, two locations are created, and in a future topic, each location is assigned to assets.

Next task: Create an asset type, status type, and warranty type
