Adding lifecycle status values

You can add more lifecycle status values if the predefined ones are not explicit enough or do not fit your requirements. Any status values that you add can be applied to all your assets.

Before you begin

Make sure you have the Evaluation Schedule tab of the Global Settings > Financial Asset Management node selected.

  1. Click Add Status .
    The Add a Status window appears on the screen.
  2. Enter the name for the new status in the Status field.
  3. Click OK to confirm.
    The status is added to the list at the bottom with the next sequence number available.
  4. If the status needs to be moved to another place in the sequence select it.
  5. Click Move Up until it is at the desired position.

    Be aware that your new status can never be the first in the order, this place is always held by On Order .

The new lifecycle status is now available for all assets and can be assigned to any new and existing one.

Note:

Be aware, that any custom created lifecycle status values are never included in the automatic data evaluation, therefore it must be deactivated on each device for which you select a custom status manually.
