Edit Your Assets’ Location and Information

Any assets that have been added to a Project can be edited to revise details, information, or location on the map.

You can edit any asset that you have added to the map (except for View-Only and Limited users). That includes the asset’s location and information about the asset. It's easy to change the location of an asset if it was placed incorrectly or needs to be altered based on its place within your live site. 


To edit information about the asset, start by locating the asset that needs to be moved. To do that, you can either click on the asset on the map or find the asset within Table View. 

  1. When you click on the asset in the map, a card will appear where you can click the name of the asset to view the field form, edit the asset on the map, add a comment, and add a linked asset or file. Click the option to "Edit on Map":edit asset location 1
  2. "Edit on Map" will open the field form and place circle vertices on the asset, indicating that the location can be altered. Manually drag and move the point(s) of the asset to alter its position on your site. edit asset location 2
  3. For polygon or line assets, you can add or remove vertices to further refine the shape of the asset. First, click "Edit on Map."  
    1. To add a vertex, click along the edge of the shape where you would like to add the vertex. A "+" icon will appear - clicking this will add a vertex along the edge, which can then be moved around by clicking and dragging.
