    Destiny Resource Manager Webinar: Managing Your Resources

    Description: Whether your district has a 1:1 initiative or just wants to make sure the science labs have all their microscopes, you need an effective way to manage and track your resources. From tablets to desks, basketballs to textbooks, Destiny Resource Manager lets you catalog your resources so you can easily find, inventory and report on them. Resource Manager uses resource templates. Each template represents a specific resource type and together they all form the resource template tree.  You can build your resource template tree from scratch or use a predefined template tree.  In this training you will learn how to select a resource template tree and create the templates to ensure detailed accurate records of each resource.
