Cloning an asset

Our product allows you to copy an asset (including all the previously added field form information) and add it to your map. With this feature, you do not have to re-input information into a new asset. The ability to clone gives you the power to copy all information associated with an asset while creating a new asset that can be mapped. This will save you time you may have wasted drawing a net new asset and typing in each new field within its form. Here's how you clone an asset:

 

1. Find the asset you want to clone by locating it on the map or searching for it in Table View. Click on the asset to open its field form.
