Inventory Check-in and Check-out process


Is there a way to create an inventory check-in/check-out process on a tablet with forms? All inventory is tracked in Smartsheet and asset tagged. I'm thinking a self-checkout station.

Thank you!

    Hello, @mgilkessmith ! A form for check-in might be complicated. What about a form for check-out with a "Created Date" automated column, and all items checked out go into a report? Then, people could click into the report and change the status to "Checked In" when they return it. You could have a "Modified Date" column type for whenever people change the status. This way, a single line would show you who checked out which item, at what time, and when they returned it.

    Would that work?

    @Amber Eakin I'm not sure that would work with the process we are trying to implement. I will need to white board this a bit more.
