New With version 9.6, LOGINventory receives a major web update. Many new functions are now available on the asset details page after scanning a QR code, such as taking photos, documenting the transfer of multiple assets simultaneously or creating general lifecycle entries. User details can now also be viewed on the new User Details page on the web. This page can also be used as a self-service portal by any user to track which assets have been assigned to them and when. We present all the new features here.

Simultaneous Transfer of Multiple Assets

When handing out or returning a device, the new Additional Assets option can be used to select that the handover should be documented for several devices simultaneously. This means that several individual handovers no longer have to be carried out one after the other; one handover process is sufficient. When selecting the additional assets to be handed over, you can search by name, serial number, inventory number or owner.

Particularly helpful: If several devices are to be returned, all of the user’s assets are automatically suggested, so there is no need to search manually. This suggestion list can of course still be customized.

Hand Out of Multiple Assets

New User Details Page

The new User Details page allows authorized users to view all details of assigned assets and lifecycle entries for all users via the web. Furthermore, users outside the LOGINventory authorization concept can also see the details linked to them in LOGINventory on the web. This allows them to track which devices they signed for and when and easily see which assets are assigned to them.

Taking Photos

On the Asset Details page, it is possible to save a photo / image on the device. On a smartphone, the camera can be opened to take a photo and save it. You can also search the local photo storage on the smartphone or computer to upload a suitable image. The image stored here can then also be viewed / changed in the info widget.

Terms of Use and Tags

It is now possible to set that the user who receives a device must also accept the terms of use for the device. A specific PDF can be stored for this purpose, which can also be accessed via the website. If the conditions have been accepted, this is also documented accordingly in the generated lifecycle entry.

Accept Terms of Use

In addition, tags can be stored in the settings. These tags are then available on the website and save time during the handover process. For example, tags can be used to document that devices were handed over “incl. charging cable” or “incl. protective cover”, or that the “condition was OK”.

It is now also possible to set that lifecycle entries created via the website can no longer be subsequently edited in order to prevent manipulation.

Creating General Lifecycle Entries

Using a smartphone or tablet, you can now not only document the hand out or return of devices, but also create general lifecycle entries, e.g. to document a repair, maintenance, decommissioning, scrapping or similar. The procedure is identical to the previous process, but you can now also create your own lifecycle entries via the Web Viewer as before in the Info widget.

Furthermore, all existing lifecycle entries on the asset can also be viewed.

Editing Custom Properties

On the asset details page, it is now no longer only possible to create lifecycle entries, but also to edit custom properties and the description field of a device. For example, the location or status of a device can be easily adjusted via smartphone after scanning the QR code.
