Our current tentative milestone goal is September 15, which is just under a month away!

IMPORTANT: This version of Snipe-IT requires PHP 7.1.3 or greater.

Introducing our first training video!

Folks have been asking for more in-depth training than just the user's manual, and we're answering the call. Behold, our first of what will hopefully be many more Snipe-IT user training videos.

Snipe-IT is a pretty complex application, so it will take us a while to cover everything (especially since we add new features all the time), but we're pleased to present you with an in-depth "Turbo Tutorial" that walks you through how custom fields and custom fieldsets wotk in Snipe-IT.
