Archiving an Equipment

You may also Archive a piece of equipment by clicking the Active/Archive smart button.

If the piece of equipment is Active, clicking the smart button with Archive it. If the piece of equipment is Archived, clicking the smart button with Restore/Activate it.

  Good to Know!

If an equipment has been archived, it will not show up on your list of equipments or when you search equipments unless you first set a filter for 'Active: is false'.


This module adds a new button to maintenance equipment form view that enables the user to Archive equipments. Additionally, it adds `purchase_date`, `purchase_condition` and `purchase_note` to `maintenance_equipment` model and form view.
