Selecting an asset category and assetBack to top
Asset categories (bikes, kayaks, cabins, buses...) allow you to group similar assets. Already have assets created? You can add an existing category of assets to your product by following these steps.
1. Click the Select an Asset Category field to select an existing asset category (e.g. kayaks) from the list. This would be the asset category associated with the asset (e.g. single kayak) you would like to link to your product.
2. Click Select asset(s) to open the drop-down menu listing available assets.
3. Select the asset(s) you want to associate with your product.
4. Next, determine whether the asset associated with the product is priced by each asset and private to each booking (Quantity) or priced per seat and a shared booking (Capacity). These inventory numbers are configured with the asset (Inventory > Assets). We cover this in more detail in the article: Assigning Assets to your products by quantity vs. capacity.
In the next article in this series, we look at assigning resources by quantity or capacity in more detail.
