What Is Equipment?
vWork Equipment allows you to schedule your own equipment as you would a driver or worker. vWork provides a separate schedule page for your company equipment.
For example, you can attach some equipment to a job that would be used for that job (like an excavator). This shows your dispatcher that the equipment is in use, so they can avoid double bookings.
How do I set up Equipment?
To add equipment to your equipment database go to: Settings > Equipment
Then you can add your business's equipment by clicking 'Add Equipment'. Our equipment feature is still in the phase one release so you cannot bulk import or export equipment just yet.
How do I create equipment?
You can create equipment that belongs to your business. Click Add equipment, then fill out the details as shown below. You can also restrict your equipment by vWork group and tag your equipment, along with adding an image.
