Custom Tasks in the Hardware Asset Form
We're getting to grips with Asset Management within the portal and it's going well, but some of my colleagues are forgetting silly little things, like not setting the HW Asset Status to "Loaned" when loaning out an asset. It got me thinking, the easiest way would be to create one or two custom tasks to add onto the HW Asset form...
Wondered if anyone might be able to help in any way, or if anyone had developed custom tasks themselves they might be willing to share?
In my mind, I was thinking of a "Loan Item" custom task that opens a window asking for a user (via user picker), Loan Date and Return Date. Fill all three out and the task could set the Primary User/Custodian, the Loan and Return dates and set the HW Asset Status to Loaned all in one go.
Another idea was something that lets you update the HW Asset Status but also include a comment. The task could take the name of the active user and the current date/time and perhaps append the comment to the Notes tab along with the name and date/time of the commenter.
