When your team is looking to keep track of the usage of your Assets, you can go to our Meters section. This way you can track historical usage over time. You also have the ability to use Meters to set-up Work Order Triggers.
If you already have your list of Meters that you want to set-up, you can import these into UpKeep quickly!
