Can IIQ asset be used for management/ check in/ check out for Band and String instruments? What would that look like? Do we need custom fields? Has anyone done this with instruments? Also, is there a way to auto generate an email to parents when an asset is assigned to a student?

@davecarty is doing this, but I could be wrong.
Yes we are. We have a Model Category for Instruments and created Models under it. We don’t have parent emails in IIQ so we do not send an email to parents, but students get an email whenever an asset is checked out or in.
I was thinking of creating an asset type called Instruments and then category of Music and then a sub category for each of the instrument types. Does that make sense?
Yes, that makes more sense, because Then we could have a music book category too. Thank you.
We have an Asset Type called Instruments
We also have a Parent Category called Instruments sub categories called Woodwind, Brass, Strings, and Percussion.
