Adding a New Model

You may want to create a new models to accommodate pieces of equipment or software that do not fall into the default models. Administrators can create additional models. Begin by clicking on Administration > Models  on the left navigation bar.

This will take you to the Models page. Click on Add Model at the top right of the screen. In the fly-out window, you will first need to provide the following information:

  • Manufacturer
  • Name
  • Asset Type
  • Category
  • An image (optional)

Please note: If you need to add a manufacturer or asset type into the system, please see the following articles Manufacturers or Asset Type

Finally, if you are using multiple modules in Incident IQ, you can select the product visibility of your new model. This allows you to selectively enable and disable the availability of model by product module when creating and editing models. 

In addition to the product visibility, you can also set model visibility based on user roles. This allows you to remove options for users that they may not need to see for use in ticketing while still allowing other roles to see and select the category without any issue. Once saved, your model should become available for immediate use.
