Check in Rental Agreement

This document explains how to check in a rental agreement. The purpose of the check-in process is to keep track of the physical movements of rental equipment.

Equipment that has previously been checked out through the rental agreement can only be checked in. During check-in, the customer location and warehouse location of an individual item are updated in the warehouse location where check-in occurs.


The rental agreement is completed when a termination date is entered on the agreement line or when the rental item is checked in. If a termination date is indicated on the agreement line, you can also print a termination note for return of the equipment from the customer.

Where required, service can be started once the individual item/equipment has been checked in.

You can also have the service order generated automatically during check-in by selecting the parameter in (STS101/E).

    The quantity is soft allocated, and only the serial number that was checked out against the corresponding agreement line is available for hard allocation (this prevents erroneous returns and ensures that meter readings use the same serial number at check-in as at check-out).
