Asset Management allows you to create up to four custom fields. The custom field created for the respective product type allows you to denote specific information per tag.

For example, you may wish to know the operating system installed on each desktop computer, or you may wish to track which of your laptops is instructional or non-instructional. 

The following video provides a step-by-step process for creating a new custom field for a product type in the Catalog:

 

Asset Management allows you to remove a custom field for a particular product type up until the point a tag has been issued using the respective product type.

When you click on edit.png Edit for the product type, if a delete.png Delete icon appears to the right of the previously created custom field, you may delete the custom field. If the delete.pngDelete icon is not present, a tag has already been issued using this product type and the custom field may now contain data. Therefore, you can no longer delete it.
