You can use extra input fields to add additional information (contact person or equipment for example). Your created input fields will be added to your main modules and the information will be part of your core data. This means that the information coming from extra input fields can be used for filtering, or displayed on call sheets, invoices, packing slips etc.
Example: You would like to indicate in a project whether lunch will be provided on location or not. In this case you would add a new field and name it “Lunch provided on location” and assign it to ‘subproject’ with a ‘Yes/No’ entry field. The extra input field you have created will be displayed when creating a new project under ‘Extra input fields’ in the general tab. By adding a variable to your call sheet template you can make sure that the information will also be visible for the project crew.
You can add extra input fields to the following modules or categories in Rentman:
- Serial number
