Adding Racks

Racks (and shelves within them) contain assets.

Adding a rack

  1. Go to Assets → Add New → select “Rack” → enter details.
  2. Do either of the following:
    • Click Add → Add and Continue With New Values to start with blank fields for subsequent entries; or
    • Click Add → Add and Continue With Same Values to repeat the entered values (except for Name) for subsequent entries.

The rack will now appear in the hierarchy (Assets → Overview → click “Hierarchy” in the drop-down) under its parent location.


You can also create a rack from the right-click menu in the hierarchy (right-click on parent location → Add New Asset). Note that with this approach you can click on Add to simply add the location, in addition to being able to add and continue with new or same values (as described in step 3 above).

Adding a rack to a location layout

You can surface a rack on an existing location layout to visually interact with it.


The target location must have a layout and a grid.

  1. Browse to the target location in hierarchy.
  2. Click Layout tab → Edit.
  3. Drag the rack from the hierarchy to a grid tile in the layout.

The rack appear in the location layout.

Adding a shelf to a rack

You can add shelves to racks for fine-grained asset placement. Zero U and unplaced assets will appear in their own category in the rack layout view.

  1. Browse to the rack in the hierarchy.
  2. Click Layout tab → Add Shelf.
  3. Enter details and save.

The shelf will get added.
