Description

I would like to have someone develop a resource checkout system. This could be for a small library of books, videos, etc. or other resource that people can check out (company van, etc.).

Admin Side:

  • Category admin
  • Resource admin
  • Users admin
  • Inventory status (what is checked out, what is in stock etc.)
  • Users who currently have the item
  • Checkout length admin (custom settings by item, or blanket timeframe, or no checkout length)


User Side:

  • List of items available (categorized by type: videos, books, tapes, etc.)
  • List of items you are on the waiting list for
  • Your position in the list (You are 3rd in line for this item)


Automatic Pieces:

  • User notification of an item coming due / past due
  • User notification that the item they were waiting for has been checked back in.



This might also be able to be expanded to serve as a rental pool with just a little extra work.

Workaround

In the meantime, you can use an external free software app called mrbs:
http://mrbs.sf.net
But yes, agreed, this feature is missing. A new tracker field which interacts with the calendar booking days or periods (at least) might be a starting point. Somewhat like the "subscription tracker field" ( http://doc.tiki.org/Subscription+Tracker+Field ) but with booking.

Keywords

The following is a list of keywords that should serve as hubs for navigation within the Tiki development and should correspond to documentation keywords.

Each feature in Tiki has a wiki page which regroups all the bugs, requests for enhancements, etc. It is somewhat a form of wiki-based project management. You can also express your interest in a feature by adding it to your profile. You can also try out the Dynamic filter.
