Easiest ways to enter assets for estate inventory

1. See FairSplit video on adding assets.  Usually taking photos room by room and uploading to each room is best.  Then you will be able to enter assets while viewing the room photos above the table fields. List the assets in FairSplit room by room, category by category (furniture, art, etc.)then do the  next, category, so only the asset name is needed, then ADD, Next, ADD, etc. When making the asset name, be descriptive. Rectangular oak coffee table is better than just coffee table.

Afterwards (where needed), assign photos to assets so Divisees will easily know which you were using. Please note that in estates and divorces, often the divisees are familiar with the items so it isn’t always necessary to actually associate a photo or photos with each and every item.  Just having them available to view in rooms is often enough.  Enter a good Asset Name since that is what users will see on their lists. They see the details only when clicking on the item.  Ex.:  Mahogany square center table with beveled glass is better than cocktail table.

Tip: If you have other family members willing to help, make give them Lister and Valuator Roles and let them do a few rooms! (You can remove those roles afterwards)

2. If you already have a list in excel or csv files from another inventory application, view the instructions in the Upload Spreadsheets to save duplicated work.  Your full list will be populated.  You will then want to associate photos or appraisals to those items
