There are three types of ways/views you can display Assets:
- List View: Lists down all your items. You can also customize the columns in this view. To learn more, click here.
- Thumbnail View: Shows the images of all your assets along with their asset #, name, group, availability and AIN.
- Compact View: This option combines all the assets with the same name. This can be turned on/off for both the List and Thumbnail view.
Similar to Compact View on Assets, there’s Location Stock View on Inventory and Asset Stock, and Current Checkout View on Asset Stock.
