My district purchased IIQ as an asset management system but also wants to use it for textbooks and instructional materials that are checked out to students and teachers. I am looking for other districts who are also using it for instructional materials for best practices and other ideas. If this is you, please reply so we can connect.

So there is a step-by-step on how to do this, however, there is a good amount of work on the back end to successfully do this. These are the steps from my manager on how to do this best.
Henry County has their textbooks in their system.
@tmolony is on their team! Would you be willing to assist another community member??
Thank you for this. I would love to connect with Henry County. We have most of our textbooks in the system currently and set up very similar to this. I’d like to be able to have a ticket workflow where a campus can request items from the warehouse as needed. Would this not be possible?
I suggest adding it under a custom category/issue/field. This would be the best way to allow staff to request information. Additionally, creating a rule to assign it to the correct team would automatically have the request go to the right people. Do you think that would be something you are interested in?
Yes I think so.
We add asset tagged textbooks as IIQ assets and workbooks/consumables as Parts.
When users request a textbook, when have added a custom filed to the ticket where the user looks up the Model (book).
Can some of these same custom fields be applied to wanting to create a IIQ asset management/ check in/ check out for Band and String instruments? Also, is there a way to auto generate an email to parents when an asset is assigned to a student?
Currently, there is no way to email parents when an asset is checked in/out. Here is an idea to upvote:
