Service Overview


Maintenance / Service Overview



When you first access the Work Orders screen, the Service Overview tab is selected.  The Service Overview tabbed screen provides an immediate glimpse of all pending services due (PMs) sorted by Unit Name & Service Due Date.  Services (PMs) shown in this screen are taken from all the Units / Scheduled Services (PMs) screen.


Searching Services Due

By default, the Service Overview screen displays all services due sorted by Unit Name & Service Due Date.  You can limit the services displayed by completing the search fields and clicking on the Search button and insert the desired date range.  You can also set the default date range under Administration / Defaults / Work Order Defaults.


Printing Services Due

You can also print a list of the services displayed in the screen by clicking the Print button.


Selecting Services To Create Work Orders

In order to create and print work orders, you must select the services you wish to order (have work orders created).  Several methods are available for selecting services that need to be performed.  You can click services one at a time by clicking in the left column labeled Pick.  Clicking on an already selected item will unselect that item.  More importantly, you can click the "Selection" button to select every item listed or items by unit.  You can also unselect items you do not wish to have performed by clicking on the "Selection" button.


Services are placed on separate work orders by Unit and Work Group.  If a service is checked for SeparateWO, then the service will also be placed on a separate work order of its own.


For details on creating work orders from the picked services, see that help section.
