Idea create a process for Changing Locations and Searchable Fields of unassigned devices ... Shipment Control method/hack

When collecting unused devices for moving, storing, recycling I found it helpful to create an extension to act as my shipper.  (control doc)

Usecase.  Site 1 wants to ship 12 phones to Site 2 in a controlled manner.

a. create an extension named like: "Site 1 Shipper"
b. collected phones are added to, by assignment 'assigned to' ext. Site 1 Shipper
c. device nicknames are changed like 'shipping01' '-12' 
d. at this point e911 info, and numbers could be changed as well to match new location
e. phones are boxed then moved then received at new location
* the sudo user extension provides a way to verify phones received
f. at new location after verification of devices shipped -- the extension is deleted - returning the phones back to 'unassigned phones' in the Phones & Devices portal with new searchable nicknames and numbers
g. devices are now ready for assignment, storage, recycling etc.
