Period info and actions
In the module Periods you can manage the periods that you use within the rental processes. Periods are used specifically for the rental processes, after all, the rental is streamlined by using rental periods. We need to know how long certain items have been and may be rented out. The standard periods are defined in this module. It is unusual to mutate in this on a daily basis, normally the periods are recorded during the start.
Within these periods, the period units must be recorded with which items are rented out. Periods can be, for example, a day, a week, two weeks, or a month. If you use times (see system settings use date and time) you can also create periods shorter than one day. You can, for example, rent by the hour.
The periods are also important for the prices of articles within your system. You can define article prices per period.
