The purpose of Transferring Items (to a Person OR User) is the process of Checking Out an Item that is ALREADY Checked Out.
For example, you can Check Out an Item to an Officer who can then Transfer that Item to a lab for testing.
When going through the Transfer process, the Officer can document Notes regarding the Transfer, and obtain a signature from the lab via a cell phone or tablet with internet connectivity.
To Transfer an Item(s) to another Organization that uses SAFE (for example), first make sure that Item has been ‘Checked Out’.
Next, select the Item(s) you would like to Transfer and choose Transfer Item(s) from the Actions menu.
The Transfer screen will then appear.
