ShareMyToolbox brings personal equipment inventory and lending to the twenty-first century.
ShareMyToolbox is a beautiful and simple way to both digitally inventory all of your tools and equipment and a convenient way to share what you have and let others’ request to borrow them. It’s easy to create your inventory of tools with an image, model and serial numbers, description, purchase info (including date, price, and warranty date). Each item includes an overview tab with equipment info, a status tab to show whether the tool is currently being loaned out or available to borrow, and a history tab showing everything that’s happened with this tool, including creation date, and who borrowed it and when.
ShareMyToolbox lets you easily connect with and view the inventories of other users of the app. This lets you create a network of your friends and coworkers so that everyone can find and request the tools they need. You create a profile in ShareMyToolbox that includes your name and contact info, a profile photo, and other information such as the industry and company you are in.
Adding connections in ShareMyToolbox is easy too: in the menu, tap Connections, this screen will display all of your current connections you have. Tapping a listing will show that person’s profile including their photo, contact info, as well as info about their tools such as total number, number available to borrow, and their borrowing stats. Each connection profile has a Tools tab that lists all of their tools, and tapping each will bring up the full profile for that tool.
The best way to find the appropriate tool is ShareMyToolbox’s Tool View, where you can see a list of all the tools and equipment in your network of connections. This view includes useful ways to sort the list with useful filters such as All Tools, Available, Borrowed, and Loaned, and colored rings around each listings photo indicates availability: blue for Connection’s tools that are available, yellow for your tools that are available, grey for unavailable tools, green for your borrowed tools, and red for a connection’s borrowed tool.
Once you have found the tool you need, request to borrow available tools using the button at the bottom of each listing and tap Borrow. This will show a popup where you can specify how long you want to borrow the tool. The owner will then receive a notification and can respond by either accepting or rejecting the request.
