Our product team has been working to improve the asset lifecycle in the application and we plan on releasing feature sets that improve the mapping of the office workflow with that of our application’s. One of the features introduced a few weeks back was retiring assets.
Asset Retirement is archival of an asset, this is an asset that once was in ‘active service’ and now is either no longer in service and/or has been written off the books of the company. The advantage of retiring an asset over deleting is that it retains all the history associated with it.
A retired asset will not appear in searches or standard views. To view a retired asset the filter on the asset page will need to be used.
