Using Task Asset Fields

Learn how to use task asset fields to record additional asset information in AroFlo Office

Updated on May 16th, 2024

Task Asset Fields are a great way to keep track of the service history of assets, as you can record extra information via Custom Fields on assets added to tasks, based on that particular visit. Task Asset Fields are set up in Site Admin.

The great thing about this feature is that you can customize which fields appear for which assets depending on the asset type, task type, or both. You can then use this information on layouts to easily send your clients a service report, as well as use it for reporting purposes.

If an asset contains Task Asset Fields, these will display within the Custom Fields tab, in the Assets section of the task:

See Task Asset Fields for setup instructions and more information, including use cases and how you might use these to your advantage in your workflow.


Completing Asset Fields

Once an asset is added to a task and the task is saved, the applicable task asset fields will be available for each asset depending on the scenario, i.e. asset type, task type, or combination of these.


Fill out the fields as necessary from the Custom Fields tab before saving your task.

  • Fields that have been marked as required will automatically be displayed and must be completed in order to complete the task.
  • To show all custom fields for all assets, use the dropdown at the top of the assets list and select Show All Fields.
  • Alternatively, you can toggle this for each asset by clicking Show All Fields while on the Custom Fields tab of the asset.

Using task asset fields in layouts

To get you started with this feature, we've created a couple of standard task layouts available for you:

  • Asset Report Simple - Shows the Asset Name and Status (Pass/Fail/NA). 
  • Asset Report Detailed - Shows the applicable task asset fields indented underneath each asset.

Show layouts

Asset Report Simple


Asset Report Detailed


Both of these layouts contain a table called Task Asset Custom Fields.

For further customization, you can:

  • edit the table to add a few task asset fields, which will display vertically down the page (if using Asset Report Simple), and then save this custom layout, or
  • further customize the layout (if using Asset Report Detailed), and then save this custom layout, or alternatively
  • use an existing custom layout that you use in your business and add this table to it, and customise it further.

See Add or Edit a Table Element for more information.  

Currently not supported for RTF layouts

The Task Asset Custom Fields table is currently only available for standard layouts and is not supported for RTF layouts.



Using task asset fields in reports
