Equipment is tracked much in the same way as Skills. You have the ability to create and track up to 10,000 equipment items. Some organizations choose not to track any equipment while others have an extensive list of equipment that they track for their volunteers. By tracking equipment for each volunteer, you can easily run a search for volunteers with a specific equipment item or several equipment items. Examples of commonly tracked equipment items are a pick-up truck, delivery truck, trailer, chainsaw, snow blower, lawn mower, riding lawn mower, etc. To give you some more equipment ideas, please view the attached document which is a more comprehensive equipment listing
When adding new equipment in CERVIS, you will give it a 4-digit number which we refer to as the Equipment Code. In the System Configuration, you can set how volunteers will view the Equipment List - either alphabetically or numerically by Equipment Code. For organizations that list their equipment by Equipment Code, many group their equipment by number. For example, the 1000s represent tools, the 2000s represent vehicles, the 3000s represent maintenance equipment, etc. In the System Configuration, you can also choose whether the Equipment Code is viewable by volunteers or is hidden.
