The Warehouse module provides an overview of what needs to happen in the warehouse, and makes it possible to indicate what has already been done. This article further explains what for and how you use the Warehouse module in Rentman.
The Warehouse module provides an overview of projects that need to be prepared for, are coming back, or should have been returned already. Equipment can be booked per project and scanned to carry different statuses so that it's clear where the equipment currently is. Crew can directly add defects, alternatives and other notes to projects and equipment, so that the equipment stock and planning is always on point.
Overview of the module
Tip: Be sure to select the right day in the top left of the module.
This timeline shows which vehicles are leaving and coming back on that day. This makes it clear what projects are going out and are coming back in. You may use this to know what equipment needs to be loaded, unloaded or prepared.
This timeline shows which crew members are planned on the projects of that day.
A project can have 4 statuses, which show what the next step should be:
These are the projects that are confirmed and are starting on this day.
These are the projects that have been prepared and are starting on this day.
- Show all: All projects that carry this status are shown.
- Expected back: Projects that end on this day and are thus coming back.
These are the projects that should have been back, but haven't been (completely) booked back to the warehouse. A project will automatically be assigned this status when some equipment is still on location. You cannot manually assign this status to projects.
Tip: You can change the status of a project in the Warehouse module by clicking on Done. You can also change the status of a project by opening it in the Projects module, and editing the status it in the General tab.
Each tile of a status represents one (sub)project.
Note: When you are using subprojects, every tile represents a subproject.
The project tiles show the following information:
Name of the (sub)project.
Start or end date of the planning period.

Booking and scanning of equipment
When booking equipment for a project, a list of planned equipment is shown. These can be booked to another status so that it becomes clear where each item currently is. Equipment can be scanned or be manually booked.

Equipment items that you've booked as lost in the Warehouse module will show up in the Maintenance module. This provides a good overview of equipment that was lost during your projects.
