    Hudu Tips & Tricks:
    Gold Standards

    Mask Copy

    Hudu's Gold Standards feature provides the ability to designate asset entries as “Gold Standards”, essentially marking them as examples of what high-quality documented assets should look like.

    • A successful strategy we've seen for Gold Standards is to have multiple gold standards for each asset layout, as there may be differences between specific assets.
    • Additionally, we recommend Gold Standards having real data, not dummy data.  

    In order to mark an asset as a Gold Standard, navigate to the desired asset. Once in that asset, click more options, and then select "Make Gold Standard". Once selected, the asset should have a gold bar under its name as seen here:

    Now, once you have your Gold Standard(s) created, the Gold Standards tab of your Hudu admin area will provide up to your top three gold standard assets for each asset layout:

    Note: Although you can designate more than three assets as gold standard per asset layout, only the top three will appear in the Hudu admin >> Gold Standards area. Additional Gold Standard assets (if you have 4 or more) will only appear when creating/editing an asset.

    Now, when going in to an asset layout and adding a new asset, the Gold Standard examples populate on the right side of the page, as seen below. This ensures that if an individual is adding a new asset to any company, they have quality examples to follow.

    We moved to Hudu from another well known documentation platform. Out of all our IT stack, Hudu is probably the simplest product to pick up and use despite it being full of features that us MSPs love. We're so happy we made the move!

    Standardization of processes drove our need for Hudu and in the end, the checklist feature and how we can assign checklists to any asset won us over. Hudu has certainly increased productivity and helped us adopt a culture of documenting.
