When you first open Sage Fixed Assets, an “Assets Snapshot” pops up. Many people either ignore this or set it to “Do not display on startup”. However, I have found it to be a valuable, convenient management tool. At a glance, you have a lot of pertinent Fixed Asset information including an Asset Listing with an asset count and cost; information about the latest activity dates; charts showing active assets by property type and the value of assets placed in service. This information is visual and very easy to read. It gives you, as the name says, a “snapshot” of the status of your assets.
If you have turned this feature off, you can easily access it from the Reports menu.
So before you avoid or turn the Snapshot off, take a better look at it and you may learn you can’t live without it.
