Weekly Dynamic: Fixed Asset Modifier

Paraphrasing a well know commercial “Fixed Assets are messy, clean ‘em up”
Over time fixed asset numbering can get kind of messy, especially if you’re trying to keep some kind of logic to it. May you want your FA numbers to all be 5 digits and someone keys the asset with 4 digits. Well the Fixed Asset Modifier, part of the now free Professional Service Tools, will let you rename an asset with minimal fuss.
It’s about a straightforward as you can get, enter or lookup the old number, key in the new number. The system retains the suffix which could be a challenge if you’re trying to cluster multiple assets based on an asset ID but it’s better than nothing.
