Selecting a period of time
The time shown for a project in the timeline is the entire rental period of the project. In the equipment section a period time can be selected by clicking on 'Period' in the timeline. It is also possible to zoom in the timeline by clicking on the magnifying glasses.
If the period of time is larger than what is shown it is possible to sroll trough the dates horizontally or trough the items vertically.

Orange: zero items in stock.
Red: less than one item in stock.
When you move the mouse over the colors it will a window will pop up with more details about your equipment availability.
