It can be very handy to be able to view other documents relating to an asset (or to a ‘model’), directly from within the software. These might include:
- Risk assessment.
- Inspection certificate (eg, for lifting gear).
- Service manual.
- User manual.
- Photo of the asset.
To do this, you need to either host the document on your own server / hosting package, or have it stored online by other means (see below). Then, link to it within the ‘linked documents’ feature in ToolFleet. You can find this under ‘Assets’ / ‘Linked documents’.
Links can be created either to ‘assets’, or to ‘models’.
Hosting documents online

Perhaps you would prefer to have your own website and online server for your firm’s documents. If you’ve not got a web hosting package in place yet, then to save you wasting valuable time shopping around, we can thoroughly recommend ‘BigWetFish’. We’ve been using them for many years (for a few different sites), and have always found their customer support absolutely second to none. Not only that, but their prices are a lot cheaper than most hosting packages, and their servers are very reliable.
