I'm fairly certain this functionality is only available for the device asset type. You can add a user field to other types of assets and assign users, but the Choose Action, Assign functionality won't be available.

Top Answer

To assign "Ownership" to a non device Asset type, you will need to add a field in to the type that shows as a "User".


You will then be able to assign an owner in every asset record


And you will then be able to see in the User record what assets are assigned to each user.

Ownership data will then be able to be managed on mobile scanner apps such as Go or our own BarKode app so you can update data at the customer desk etc

  • In my testing this doesn't enable the specific function of selecting a row in the list view and assigning the owner via the Choose Action menu. Did that work in your environment? - chucksteel 1 year ago
