Viewing & Searching Work Orders
The current list of work orders that have been entered into the system can be viewed under Inventory -> Work Orders in the top left navigation panel.
This list is sorted in ascending order by the work order’s main asset serial number and for each work order listed, we show the following high-level information so that a work order can be quickly identified without having to click on the work order to view it:
- Work Order Identification Number
- Work Order Status
- Work Order Type
- Main Asset Serial Number
- Main Asset Location
- Work Order Completed Date (if applicable)
Filtering The Work Order List
By default this list will show all active work orders for the currently selected location in the location switcher help but by using the available search filters, you can find work orders based off different criteria.
The main Search filter let’s you search any detail of an asset. It also supports searching for a specific phrase by wrapping the search term in quotes (“) or wild card searches by prepending or appending an asterisks (*) to the search term.
Search Filter Examples:
To find all work orders that made modifications to a motor with serial number “M5232-650”, enter “M5232-650”.
To find all work orders that were completed after November 4, 2017, enter completed_at:>2017-11-04.
Any searches that are peformed frequently can be bookmarked help so that they can be quickly and easily accessed.
Exporting The Work Order List
Work Orders can also be exported help if you need to download a list of work order information to perform futher analysis or import into a different program.
The export contains all work orders that are part of the currently applied filters and displayed in the work order list. This gives the ability to customize exactly what work orders are in the export for different needs.
To export work orders click on the Export Work orders button on the top right of the page.
Currently the work order export is available in a Microsoft Excel version that separates the work orders by their type. Each of these types is then grouped into their own sheets since every work order tracks different information.
