iOS: Add a Place for Your Tools

Use the ONE-KEY™ mobile app to create locations for your equipment.

Assigning tools to a place—whether it’s your home base, a remote job site, or a moving vehicle—is a great way to stay organized and keep tabs on the different items in your inventory. But before you can deploy your equipment to the field, you need to know how to set up a location.  


In this article, we'll show you how to do this from the One-Key mobile app.

Get started on the One-Key mobile app

  • Login to the One-Key mobile app.
  • The homepage, or Inventory Dashboard, will display on your screen.

How to add and customize a place

With the Add a Place feature in One-Key, you can organize tools and equipment at a specific project, so you'll be able to take inventory right from your smartphone or tablet.


Place can be:

  • Your home base or a central tool location where your tools will be stored
  • An ongoing project or job site
  • Or even a vehicle moving between job sites, where your tools are temporarily stored.
