After you activate a powered Asset Gateway (AG) and before you install the AG to an asset, the device displays in your dashboard as
Uncategorized. After you complete the installation, Samsara automatically detects and updates the asset type.
If Samsara cannot detect the asset type or if you deactivate the asset, the AG asset type reverts back to
Uncategorized. To enable the workflows associated with the asset type, you can manually assign an asset type to an uncategorized AG, but you can only do so once. After you manually assign a type, you must deactivate the asset to assign a different type.
Use the following workflow to assign an uncategorized asset to a trailer or equipment:
From your Samsara dashboard, select Overview ( ) > Assets.
Click Uncategorized to see your unassigned AGs.
On the asset row, select the more options menu ( ... ) > Assign Asset Type.
