Make resources that are 'in' a serialised container not available as part of that items stock level
As an example:-
I have an Amplifier Rack that contains 1 x Amplifier, 1 x Power Cable and 2 x XLR Cables. These cables remain in this rack permanently.
When i look at availability, it shows me I have 20 XLR Cables available, when in reality, to pick, i only have 18, as 2 remain in the Amplifer Rack. Same principle applies to the Power Cable.
Wouldnt it be good if by placing these items into a serialised container, the held figure remains the same, but the availability figure changes for an item, even if its not booked out on a job. That way, i would know i own 20 XLR Cables, but have 18 that i can actually send out without ripping apart a serialised container!
Quick update as Jack's link below seems to be broken. The nuts and bolts of this idea seem very similar to this posting:
Hope it picks up some votes...
This idea looks like it might share similarities with something I'm keen for Current to implement.
Perhaps it's worth a look to see if they could share core features if it ever gets implemented!
