You have created your General Work Order
and the Sub-Orders underneath it, now what do you do? There are several actions you can perform for
each sub-order. These actions include
holding, releasing from hold, cancelling, or completing the orders.
The first step is to access the sub-order,
you will not be able to see your sub-orders within the All Active General
Orders menu option you have to go into All Active Orders. From there you will treat each sub-order as a
regular work order and complete the work flow process.
Your administrator has determined if you
are able to close the general order if sub-orders are still open. If your administrator has set the Don’t Close
General Orders until Sub-Order are Closed setting to true, the system prevents
you from closing the general until all subs are closed. If the setting is set to false, you will be
able to close the general with subs still open.
With either setting, once all sub-orders
are closed or cancelled beneath the General Work Order, the general order
closes as well.
At any time during the processing of the
general work order, you can add more sub-orders. To do so, click on the Create
Orders buttons within the Sub-Orders Actions ribbon group to open the wizard to
add more subs.
