Equipment Tracker

Easily track and checkout available equipment.

Equipment trackers help organizations track the equipment they lend or assign out.

Knack makes it easy to build and customize your own equipment tracker.

This equipment tracker template enables employees to log in and view equipment that is available to check out or borrow. Once checked out, that item is no longer available for other employees.

Admins can log in to manage the equipment inventory, view which employees have borrowed which equipment, and view a log of all previous checkouts for an item.

There are many options for expanding the functionality of an equipment tracker, such as tracking stock levels for equipment without unique IDs (like batteries or cables).

Explore the following resources to help you build your own custom app:


Employees can log in to view the equipment they\'ve borrowed and all equipment that\'s available. Employees can select an available item and check it out as borrowed. It will no longer be available for other employees to check out. Employees fill out a simple form to borrow an item. With additional workflow tools, this form can trigger an email and take the item out of inventory at the same time.
