How to use the Asset Shortcode Plugin

We have a new plugin that adds information from AMT Grand Central to wiki articles, posts or pages.

Summary

use the following shortcodes between brackets to get a variety of information from AMT Grand Central about AMT Assets.

  • amt-asset id=ASSET NUMBER  (basic asset information including the latest status)
  • amt-location-assets id=ASSET NUMBER  (All the assets in one location, see the GC api for numbers and locations)
  • amt-asset-status-list id=ASSETNUMBER (all the logs for a specific asset)

 

Basic Asset information

Shortcode: amt-asset id=ASSET NUMBER

Typing the shortcode including the unique AMT Asset Number and this data will publish to the page:

  • Asset number
  • Description
  • Status
  • Location
  • Certification Requirements

We still manually add the following information to all asset pages

  • Make/Model
  • Documentation
  • Photos

Using the basic asset shortcode

Between brackets type amt-asset id=ASSET NUMBER

Make sure to use the same spaces,  do not use the quotes in the example below!
