Equipment Linked to Item - Bulk Download Capability

It's great that the Equipment module allows you to search the equipment and then list the items attached to them. However, we need the ability to show, and download, the referenced Equipment for the Item.

    Thanks John, given the product currently is able to deliver on the original requirement we won't look at this at the moment. In future we may review the equipment screens and will consider this then.

    Hi Dylan,

    Yes... The Where Used functionality from the items view is a possibility as well. However, it's still a 2 step process when you want to see the Inventory Items, and parameter data, by the Equipment data. Linkage and dropdowns in Excel, etc.... and quite a large file as well!

    Understood that you cannot download a list of materials from the equipment view window. However, in the equipment view window you have the 'Where Used' option available which can be used to download a list of materials. This may include other FLs but the target FL can be filtered for in the spreadsheet and materials associated with the FL can be reviewed. Please advise if this is sufficient.
