This article explains how your team admin can import or update assets in to UpKeep. You can add assets one at a time, but this will allow you to save a lot of time and import them all at once! You can even bulk update your assets as well.
We have Four levels on the Asset hierarchy. This includes our Parent Asset and our Child-Assets.
Child assets are components of the Parent asset where you may be completing work on or maintaining as well. Your assets may qualify as a child asset if your parent asset does not function without that asset.
