Adding Materials

The process for adding materials is very similar to Equipment

Key fields explained:

TitleFor materials with fixed lengths and widths, it is advised to specify in the title e.g. 300mm x 3m concrete pipes.
Item ContactThe person who will be notified when people would like to claim the materials.
Unit "Total Items"Use total items when you have a number of items e.g. 45 sandbags.
Unit (m)Use metres for an item type measured in total length e.g. cabling.
Unit (m3)Metres cubed applies to piles of things like aggregate or items spoken about in volume.
Weight per itemThis is the weight per unit.
Cost per itemHow much you would pay to purchase the item from a supplier.
Availability dateThe date that others can pick the item up from.
Expiry dateThe date which you will receive a notification that no one has claimed the item. You can then choose to donate, re-list or dispose of the item.

Claiming Materials and Surplus Items

To view materials and surplus items filter the listing type on the Discover page.

Once you have clicked on an item, you can see details such as the pick up location and quantity remaining and choose to claim it.

Multiple users can place a request for materials and it is up to the original lister of the items to decide who they will be assigned to. This allows materials to be sent to where they will be most impactful, rather than distributed on a first-come-first-serve basis.

In the example below, the user has received 2 requests for the same listing - Plywood sheets. They have chosen to accept the request from Troy and decline the request from Morgan.
