Assets - Rental / Hire

When an asset is used for rental purposes, the period of hire and duration can be recorded along with the history of where the asset has been.
Details

Create a rental asset in the same way you would create a standard asset (type - Product). (See the How To guide - Assets - Products)

 

Once the product has been created, check the box 'Hire Item' in the RH menu column as shown below.
