Social Distancing Measures

When enabled, this feature will send an assets’ custodian an email which includes a list of assets under their care, and options to manage them for themselves.

For Checkout Receipts feature to work, you need a custom field that captures the custodian’s email.

Setting up Checkout Receipts

To set it up, go to Manage Assets > Checkout. On the table go to Options section then choose Receipts.

On the new page, fill out the form based on your preferences.

First, choose which data capture field you are using to record a custodian’s email address.

If you are capturing a due date, indicate which custom field is being used to record it.

Note – if a due date is being captured the app will include a “Save to Calendar” link in the emails being sent. The custodians can then use it to set up reminders on their own calendars.

Composing the message

Scroll to the Email Subject and Email Message section.

Under the Email Message field, you can use the placeholders based of your custom fields and the message to compose the email.

Checkout email receipts being sent out will include a link where the custodians can manage the assets for themselves.

Each feature they can manage needs to be explicitly set out as described below.
