Subassets are a powerful feature of ServiceTrade that allow you to make an asset a "child" of another asset -- that is, to indicate that it's a component of, or dependent on, another asset.
Some example uses for this feature are: to link alarm devices to the alarm system or alarm panel to which they're connected, or to associate components of a large piece of equipment such as a generator or an HVAC unit.
To create a Subasset from an existing asset:
1. Click the pencil icon next to the asset you wish to edit. Then choose the asset's parent asset in the "Parent Asset" dropdown:
2. All assets that can be parents of the asset you select will be shown -- for instance, if you are editing an alarm device, then all alarm systems at this location will be available for selection.
You can see the list of Subassets associated with any asset by viewing the parent asset and opening the new "Subassets" section.
Technicians who have access to view asset information can also view any asset's Subassets through the tablet web application.
