Check Out For Others
I want to give some employees the ability to check out certain assets. For instance, say a project manager is the holder of certain high value text fixtures, he is responsible for getting these to the engineers for testing and making sure they are given back when complete. I cannot make him an admin because he does not need access to every single feature. I would like him to have the ability to sign out to a user in the system without having to have the user do that themselves.
Asset level arbitration can be enabled by going to Settings -> Add Ons -> Asset level Arbitration. Once enabled, all assets will have a new attribute "Arbitration". It can be enabled for high value items meaning direct checkout is not possible for staff members. Staff members can reserve items and go through an Administrator to check it out.
Let us know if this works for you.
