I was wondering if anyone had setup a system where items (in our case, Notebook computers) are loaned out to staff. Is there an easy way of using barcodes (for example) to scan the loan computers "in" and "out". At present, we have a "Loan" workflow which has a Status of "Out On Loan" and "Item Returned". "Item Returned" closes the job.

Our issue is that it takes a lot of time opening and closing the job when we are simply handing over a computer and/or receiving it back again. We do, however, need to track who is borrowing the loan computers and for how long.

Any suggestions or other ways of achieving this will be greatly appreciated.
