Moving Assets

In the event that an asset needs to be associated with a different account, this can be done through the Mobil Serv Move Asset function.

NOTE - If moving multiple assets the simplest way to complete this is via the excel add-in.

Steps to Move an Asset via the UI 

  1. Select the Assets tile from the Dashboard.
  2. Use the search bar to find an existing asset to move and select that asset.
  3. On the Asset Details page, select Edit.
    Asset Details 'Edit'
  4. Scroll to the bottom of the Asset Editor and select Move.
    Asset Editor 'Move'
  5. Select the New Account in the Move Asset screen.
  6. Select Yes to confirm the asset move.
    1. Users can also select to move the asset by itself or move it with any child assets to the new account.
    2. Users can opt to delete the asset history when moving an asset to a new account by checking the Delete History checkbox.
      Move Asset 'Yes'
  7. Select Save to complete the asset move.
    Users may only move assets to accounts to which they are assigned.

Steps to Move an Asset via the Excel Add-In

  1. Open up the Excel Add-In (Select link if download hasn't been completed)
  2. Select Get Assets


If you receive an error such as "This asset is part of an assembly and can not be moved":
Ensure the asset being moved is not a child asset of a different asset.
If it is a child asset, the parent asset will need to be moved.

Alternatively, the child asset can be disassociated from the parent asset. 
IMPORTANT: Please check with Technical Helpdesk before completing this process!

  1. First, ensure that this asset NEEDS to be removed from the parent asset.
  2. Open the parent asset and scroll down to the Relationships panel. You should see the child asset listed underneath the parent asset:
  3. Next, click the pencil icon in the top-right corner of the Relationships screen:
    Relationships 'Edit'
  4. Now, mouse over the asset you would like to remove, and a red X will appear to the right of the name of the asset:
    Relationships 'Red X'
  5. Click the red X to remove the child asset from the parent asset.
  6. Now, you should be able to move the asset to a different account.
