Adding Racks

Racks (and shelves within them) contain assets.

To Add a Rack

  1. Go to Assets > Add New > Select “Rack” > Enter details, including the target location.
  2. Click Add, then either:
    • Add and Continue With New Values to start with blank fields for subsequent entries; or
    • Add and Continue With Same Values to repeat the entered values (except for Name) for subsequent entries.

The rack will appear in the Hierarchy tree under its parent location.

To Add a Rack to a Location Layout

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

Note

The target location must have a layout and a grid.

  1. Go to the target location in the Hierarchy tree > Layout tab > Edit.
  2. Expand the location in the Hierarchy tree > drag the rack to a grid tile in the location layout.

To Add 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 on the rack layout view.

  • Go to the rack in the Hierarchy tree > Layout tab > Add Shelf > Enter details and save.
