How are you managing the cost of hired tools / assets which have a rolling hire period but monthly payments need to be made

Hi all,

We’re implementing ERPNext in an organisation which hires tools & assets (e.g. forklift trucks, cherry pickers & containers).

These items have a rolling hire period (so no specified end date), but we have to make monthly payments to the supplier for the hire of these items.

My question is:
How can we manage these monthly costs for rolling hire periods in ERPNext please?

Thanks in advance,

To close this thread in case anyone has a similar issue, we’re going with the Auto-Repeat capability for tools & asset hire

Yep, Auto-Repeat seems to be the way to go for this functionality.

Good luck with your implementation.



Nice one, thanks Jay! :+1:
