Change Custodian Person

Updating equipment records where Custodians are no longer in custody of that asset or tool: 

  • Asset Transfers: Use the Asset Transfer dialog to change the Custodian name to another's name in several records.  Use barcode scanning for a swifter process.  Transfers are logged in the Equipment Notes history.
  • Inactive Status: Remove the checkmark in the Person record's [Is Active] checkbox.  If a person linked as an Equipment Custodian is no longer active, the result of the inactive status will clear out (NULL) the Custodian's name in related Equipment records.
  • Replace Deletion Choice:  Deletion with a replacement choice can be a quick method to remove and update related records. Select to delete the unneeded Person record, and in the next dialog, choose a replacement record from the combo-box list. Deleting a duplicate custodian's person record, for example, and selecting a replacement choice will update the name in the custodian field of related equipment records.
  • Equipment Systems:  Alternatively, creating an Equipment System is a quick method for mass updates, such as changing the Technician name in multiple Equipment records all at once.
