We released a much requested feature this week which will allow more precise and accurate tracking of check-in/checkout time spans. Check-in and check out actions will now allow you to specify the time in addition to the date. This feature will enable you to:
1. Keep a more detailed check in and check out record for your assets.
2. Manage reservations better and avoid conflicts based on time.
3. Perform granular monitoring of asset returns and overdue (based on time).
How do I use it?
Specify the return date and time while checking out an asset.
In the example above, Picard is due to return this asset at 3:35pm on Dec 23, 2013. He could have left the Time blank if he wished to. Moreover, he may still checkout the asset indefinitely by marking the Checkout indefinitely checkbox.
Similarly, you may also specify a time while extending checkout (as seen in the figure below)
This makes the Check in and Check out history of an asset more detailed, and hence more insightful. Here is an example that shows the check-in/checkout history of a particular asset and the associated time stamps.
