I would like to create an Asset Management Inventory for our corporate helpdesk. There is a list of assets (laptop, phones etc) which our ICT staff members can borrow from the helpdesk. Members would not have direct access to the system, the main user would be just a helpdesk admin managing the loans.
These are the entities I'm planning to use but I'm not really sure how should I design my content types and how to link them with each other.
- Full Name
- Office No.
- Borrowed On (date)
- To be returned (date)
- Updated On (date).
I was thinking about using a Field Collection as a Loan History as part of every Asset, in which the Borrower and the Loan Information would exist. So every time I need to create a new Loan record, I would choose the Borrower as an entity and fill in the Loan Information. If the Asset or the Borrower doesn't exist in the system, I would like the admin to be able to add them.
I'm not familiar with the Entity Reference module and I don't know if it would fit to my scenario. I need some guidance I'm afraid.
