You are now in charge of displaying the content of your equipment cases on a packing slip, quote and invoice. When creating a case you can choose if you want to hide or display its contents on your documents. These settings can be found under the 'Content' tab of your case you can set the default display settings. The default display settings can be overruled by the 'Expand cases' field when generating a packing slip, invoice or quote.

When editing your folders you can now decide in which order you would like to have them. We also made sure that there are no more delays when editing your folder structures. The order will also be used in the left column of the equipment tab in a project.

check-small.png Equipment item name in tooltip

We want to be a bit more friendly to smaller screens. That's why we added a tooltip which shows the full name when hovering over an equipment item in your project. Especially useful when the last part of your equipment name is hiding itself.Streep-Grijs.pngcheck-small.png View history of individual equipment items

You can now see the tracked history of individual equipment items (serial numbers). This how it works:

  1. Open an equipment item in your equipment database.
  2. Open the 'Serial Numbers' tab and double click on the item of which you would like to view the history. 
  3. In the 'History' tab you can select a period. 

Rentman will display on which projects the equipment item was booked.
