Adding tools to your account requires Administrator permissions. See Administrator Role for more information.

Adding a Single Tool

To add tools you must be an Administrator or Owner, 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.

Add a new tool to Site Manager

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.

Importing a List of Tools

If you already have an inventory management program or are tracking tools with a product like Excel, Site Manager is designed to import a large number of tools, Assignments, and People. Site Manager provides a guided step by step approach to getting your information uploaded.

First you will need to export a CSV file of your current inventory from your existing inventory management program. Next, log into Site Manager as an administrator (See Administrator Role (Tool Connect Site Manager)  Then click on the Import option on the left hand side of the screen.
