In SalesManager, you can set an Asset Type for Alternate Export Listing using the Asset Type Manager for each asset type. This is useful if you need to create custom asset export templates for maintenance proposals that export assets from SalesManager in a format ready for importing to an external system.


Though you can do this one by one, you can also use the Import Alternate Type List to import these Asset Type for Alternate Export Listing in bulk.

This article will walk you through using the Import Alternate Type List Import Tool.

Importing The Alternate Type List
