Greenfolder allows you to configure consumable events to help track the usage interval for items such as: landing lights, tires, oil, brakes, etc.

    events menu

  4. Complete the new consumable form.

  5. Click Save to save the new consumable.

Step 2: Configure Your Bookable Resources

Not all resources will require consumable tracking. For example, it does not make sense to log oil consumption for a flight instructor bookable. Therefore, the bookable must be configured to allow consumable events.

  1. Browse to an aircraft Bookable resource.
  2. Click Edit to edit the bookable.
  3. On the Accounting panel, click to enable the Enable Consumable Tracking setting.

With this setting enabled, your customers and administrators will be able to log the usage of consumables for the resource.
