Assets & Inventory - Release Notes

Assets & Inventory - Release Notes

Keep track of all the new features First Due is adding to our Assets module on monthly basis. Our agile approach to regularly releasing updates allows responders to familiarize themselves with advancements to the application and enables the First Due team to quickly release optimized features into their hands.

June 2021

  1. We've added an inventory list so agencies can now view their inventory agency wide, including current counts, minimums, and maximums. Inventory can be placed into specific groups, including Hand Tools, Basic Medical Supplies, Advanced Medical Supplies, etc.
     
  • We've improved assigning checklists to specific apparatus. When creating checklists, users can now easily place a check mark next to each apparatus or piece of equipment to which the specific checklist applies. 



    • Users can directly add specific compartments to checklists. When editing compartments of an apparatus, users can now place a checkmark next to a compartment and add it directly to a checklist. 



    • Re-order compartment order and contents of a compartment using the drag and drop function.  


  • Quickly see the last time a piece of equipment was inspected. Equipment that is assigned to an apparatus also displays its most recent inspection date when looking at the apparatus inventory.
