Asset category overview
Categories are used in Checkfront as a way to organize your assets in a manner that makes the most sense to you.
For example, you may wish to group your Single Level and Double Decker buses (assets) in a Tour Buses category and your double and single kayak (assets) in a Kayaks category.
From the main Categories page, your current categories are organized into five default data columns.
