Create Containers

Create equipment containers to scan your tools into and move to locations collectively.

WHAT ARE CONTAINERS IN INVENTORY SHIELD?

Our containers feature is a SOLUTION to a problem! It takes too much time and is too cumbersome when a tool bag is moved, to open it up and scan each individual tool into a new location. So here is what we did to fix that!

When you have a case, that holds special tools, you can turn that case into a “container” on Inventory Shield.

What this does is allow you to scan the tools that are inside of the case, into the case container on Inventory Shield.

When you move your case and scan it into other locations, all of the tools inside of it will be moved with it! You can know if a piece of equipment is a container because of the container icon. Each container will show how many pieces of equipment/tools it is holding.

With Containers, you can still see the scan coordinates, pictures, notes, and history. There is even a history you can access for the tools in the container.

How To Use Containers:

OPEN AN
EQUIPMENT PROFILE

This would be the piece of equipment you want to turn into a container.

SELECT 'TURN INTO
A CONTAINER'

In the Admin Actions, select ‘Turn into a Container’

CONFIRM THIS ACTION

You must confirm this is what you want to do. At the moment you can’t change a container back into a normal piece of equipment.

SCAN EQUIPMENT IN

Now your container is ready to have tools scanned in and out.

YOU'VE DONE IT!

Now go use your container as a piece of equipment and a location for other equipment!!
