We are excited to release the Assetbots REST API to all customers, including those on free plans!
Our API has been available to select customers for a few months as we worked to make sure we were making the right data available in the right ways. We are now happy enough with v1 to share it with everyone.
Head over to the Settings tab and click on API Keys to get started. You can create your own API keys with the same permissions levels that are available when inviting collaborators.
We would love to hear about what you build – so please let us know. And if you need anything along the way, email us and we’d be happy to help!
We’ve added a new Branding section to the Preferences tab where you can upload your own custom logo. This is a great way to personalize your database even further and always keep your organization on-brand!
You can upload different logos for light- and dark-mode if you wish, but if your logo works for both we will automatically default to your light-mode logo in dark-mode.
Although the Assetbots logo is square, the space that contains it is a rectangle roughly 95px wide by 32px high. We recommend you upload a logo at double resolution, which translates to at least 190px wide by 64px high. Feel free to upload any image that works within these dimensions – Assetbots will make sure it looks great whether it’s square or rectangular.
Have you ever wanted to know which assets are your most frequently used? Our new Utilization report lets you explore your assets by how many times they’ve been checked out. Even better, the report fully time travels: you can see which were your top assets last month, last quarter or last year, as well as what your relative utilization was over that time.
While building this report we also added time travelling to our Borrowers report, which shows you your top borrowers over time.
Both reports offer instant exploration of your asset utilization as well as the ability to export data to an Excel or CSV file for further analysis.
We’re excited to announce the release of our Kandji integration. Automatically sync Kandji devices and users into your Assetbots database as assets and people.
This integration also offers the ability to perform two-way syncs of Kandji device assignments (as checkouts) and asset tag IDs, as well as perform device quick actions on Kandji devices right from Assetbots.
Take a look at our setup guide and connect your Kandji tenant to Assetbots today!
We’re happy to announce that you can now use our powerful field mapper to customize how your data is synced from Azure Active Directory and Google Workspace. During this deployment, we also added a standalone SCIM 2.0 integration that can be used to sync data from any SCIM-compatible provisioning client, including Okta, Auth0, and more.
The field mapper interface for integrations is the same as the one used during data import. The first time you visit an integration page, the mapper will do its best to auto-map your existing fields based on name and field type, but you can override and customize these suggestions at any time.
You can also create new fields during mapping, so you don’t have to jump back and forth between multiple screens.
Finally, you are able to set up your mappings before you enable an integration to make sure your data is synced correctly the first time.
If you have any questions about mapping or would like to see software you use integrated with Assetbots, please chat with us in-app or email us at [email protected].
A new template is available when generating asset tags for printing: Avery L7651. This template generates 38.1mm x 21.2mm tags, 65 per sheet. The template uses standard A4 sheets and is paper that can be printed with a standard laser printer.
Avery L7651 labels can be purchased easily from multiple countries, including the UK, Australia and New Zealand.
We’ve added handy links to the Import Review screen that take you directly to filtered lists of imported records.
This works for Assets, Checkouts, Locations and People. If any of those records were imported successfully, a View assets link will appear that will take you directly to the relevant list, filtered to just this import.
The links will open in a new tab so you can open multiple lists if you need to.
A new template is available when generating asset tags for printing: Avery L4778. This template generates 45.7mm x 21.2mm tags, 48 per sheet. The template uses standard A4 sheets and is a polyester material that can be printed with a standard laser printer.
Avery L4778 labels can be purchased easily from multiple countries, including the UK, Australia and New Zealand.
