Introduction

The Work Order Scheduling page allows you to view all of your existing Work Orders, assigned and unassigned, across your various divisions and locations. It also allows you to assign these Work Orders to mechanics for completion.

This page is split vertically into two halves:

  • The left side of the page contains the Work Orders table and its controls. This table allows you to search, sort, and view the details of all unassigned Work Orders. 
  • The right side of the page contains the Mechanics table and its controls. This table contains a list of available mechanics, and allows you to view and modify the Work Orders that have been assigned to them.

To adjust the relative size of the two tables, click on the thick vertical bar between the two tables and drag it horizontally.
