In this article, you will learn how to keep track of all of your dumpster rentals and other returnable items using the Asset Tracking add-on in Workiz.

Asset Tracking is a comprehensive solution designed to help you manage your rentable items — like dumpsters, portable AC units, or pumps. With Asset Tracking, you can create “assets” and easily determine their availability when assigning them to jobs.

Enabling the add-on

  1. From the navigation bar, select the Marketplace

  2. Under Most popular, select Asset Tracking

  3. Turn the toggle switch on to enable the add-on

Tip: Asset Tracking works best when the Tasks add-on is also enabled.
