Does anyone use temporary items and if so, what do you do about them showing up overbooked on your project?

I understand the usage where you may subrent the item to resolve the overbooking but we have many cases when we are adding in a temporary item we do no intend to subrent but we still want to account for it so cannot use comments.

Just wondering what others do in similar situations.




  • Ciaran, 

    We have added a rental or sales item into our inventory as temporary and have the quantity adjusted so that it will never have a shortage. 

    we just change the name and quantity in the project to account for the item. 

    maybe this helps you too?

  • Thanks Chris. Yes that's probably the best option and then don't use the temporary item. Set up a misc. item with a quantity 1000 and rename per project.
