CMDB Relationships and Ownerships

We have assets that have relationships to one or many assets but are all used by the same users/staff. Whenever there is a ownership change, we have to update the used by, office and department field for every related asset.

Would it be possible to implement a method where an asset has a relationship/s and the properties are modified prompt us if we would like to copy those changes to all related assets.

Understand that some assets will be different properties based on needs, hence the prompt at update on what assets we wish to copy to.

Hi Joseph, 

Can you please share an example asset and it's relationships where you have the same user as the owner? Also, do these ownership changes happen frequently? Are these ownership changes a routine activity or are they a result of, say, an employee leaving the organization?

An exmaple of a relationship would be a Mobile device and mobile service. If these assests are reallocated, we would have to go into both assets and update it.

Might be better for me to send an example by email?
