When you have a lot of gear and a lot of racks and a lot of equipment rooms, it might be a good idea to create a structured equipment position overview. This will list your items’ exact storage position by marking them accordingly:
Use R01, R02 … to mark the equipment room (or to mark the rack if you have your gear in one facility)
Use SH01, SH02 … to mark the shelf position
Combine them as you see fit: R01-SH02, R03-SH01...
You can add the items' exact equipment room position in CHEQROOM by creating a custom field for Items:
Click Settings in the bottom left corner of your screen
Then click Fields
Next, make sure you selected 'Items'
Click Add field in the top-right corner
Choose Dropdown list as the type of field and add a Name
