Schools now have the ability to manage not only all enrolled devices, but they can also now manage their hardware as well.
The Inventory management section allows Administrators the ability to add and manage various types of hardware like devices, printers and mobile hotspots.
Manually Adding Inventory
You can use the Inventory Management feature to track and manage additional hardware and devices allocated to your environment.
Navigate to the Devices and then to the Inventory section and click on the Add Inventory Item and complete the form.
If you cannot find the device type you are looking for, tick the Can’t find type box.
This will bring up a free text field and allow you to add a device type of your choosing.
Once you click Create, it will add your type to the drop-down menu. Click Save once you have completed the form.
The Checkout process is very simple, just follow the steps below.
Click on the device you wish to action and a form will appear on the screen.
Click the Update status button.
In the form search for the user who will be checking out the device. Please note: Adding a note is optional.
You should notice that the status of the device on the screen will have changed to Assigned.
The student/user will need to already be added to the Mobile Guardian system.
When the student/user returns the device/hardware, click on the Update status button to check back in the equipment.
You will notice the status of the device will have changed to In-storage and this means the device has now been checked back in.
