With the Maintenance List, you can view your Sage assets needing maintenance, create maintenance work orders, export data to Excel, or modify your maintenance events. Save time by updating multiple assets at once or create and use SmartLists for your maintenance fields.

Want to go more in depth? The Asset Detail screens help you track cumulative maintenance costs and view a complete log of maintenance events. For at-a-glance maintenance updates, turn to the Asset Review. This handy, color-coded screen keeps you up to date on overdue checked-out assets and upcoming maintenance events.

Video 3: How to Customize Maintenance Fields

This video helps you:

  • Set up custom fields to meet your organization’s unique requirements
  • Choose which fields to view or hide, and determine data-entry rules
  • Reorder your screens to view maintenance event information your way

Expert tip: Before you create any maintenance events for your Sage assets, customize your maintenance fields to meet your organization’s specific requirements. Spending a few hours on this task before you start using Asset Maintenance will save you many hours for years to come.

You have a total of 26 custom fields available for Asset Maintenance. For each of these, you will want to customize the field’s title, select whether you want to hide or show the field, and set up your data-entry rules. The Maintenance Due Date and Maintenance Description fields are required and cannot be changed.

Make sure you leverage the Entry Order dropdown to specify where your custom field will show up on your Maintenance Events screen. For example, a custom field that tracks mileage for a maintenance event should probably display at the end of your Maintenance Events screen, not as the first item.

Video 4: Navigate the Maintenance Event Screens

This video helps you:

  • Understand how and where custom maintenance fields display, so you know what your end goal is
  • Discover the top 3 recommended custom fields you should create
  • Close events the correct way

The Maintenance Event screens provide key details on the various tasks and updates required for each of your Sage assets. These screens display how many events you have per asset, as well as the status of each event. Status can be either upcoming, overdue, completed, or closed.

Use the Notes section to track and record lengthier information about each maintenance event. We recommend recording things like maintenance instructions, observations, or updates regarding the current state of the asset.

These event screens are where the magic of your custom maintenance fields really start to shine. If you create custom fields like Maintenance Complete Date, Maintenance Estimated Cost, and Actual Cost, your company will have the power to track your fixed asset maintenance like never before.
