Adding a Single Tool
To add tools you must be the account Administrator or Site Admin, account Managers cannot add tools to an account. There are two ways to add non-connected tools to your account: You can upload a spreadsheet of tools via the Import function or add tools one at a time. To add tools via a spreadsheet, refer to Importing a List of Tools below. To add one tool at time, make sure you have clicked the Inventory option on the left-hand side of the screen.
Click ‘New Tool’ in the top right corner of the screen, and a window will appear. Fill in as much detail as you have about the tool as possible, the more information you provide the more ways the tool can be searched and found.
If you are adding a DEWALT tool you can save some time by typing in the model number which will autofill information about the tool. Once all the details have been filled in click on the Save button and the tool will be added to your inventory.
