I am considering using the Asset object however I am really put off by the fact that it presents as a page within a page which leads to a negative user experience. My business scenario requires that I have products installed at customer sites which are in effect assets, is there any alternative methodolgy to use in order to avoid using Assets for this scenario?

    I'm confused by what you mean when you say "presents as a page within a page". Assets display and behave just like any other standard related list item when it comes to creating/editing/viewing from the Account page. Are you referring to some other facet of their behaviour? Jun 25 '14 at 11:15

    Correct and right! My apologies, I understand now that Assets is not available as a tab page therefore it is possible to create a hack that displays a webpage as a tab and this is applied to Assets, therefore Assets ends up as a page in a page. Is should really take down this question and try to find the way of displaying Assets as a tab without using that hack.

I'm pretty sure you can add assets as a tab under the profiles management section of setup - an administrator can make that change

There was a time that Assets didn't have a tab, but the idea for it was delivered in the Spring '15 release.
