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?

I believe @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?

@I.T. tech Mayfield Makes sense to me! However, I would switch Music to the asset type since all instruments would fall under that topic, and down the road, you would be able to add more instruments as needed. 

@davecarty Would you mind sharing more about your implementation for this district?

Yes, that makes more sense, because Then we could have a music book category too. Thank you.
