Would you be interested in duplicating your Work Orders, to save time and re-typing?
If so, it’s as simple as the click of a button.
Locate the Work Order you wish to duplicate, and click View to open it:
Next, click the Duplicate Button:
You will see in the Status field, it will say: “Duplicate of _ _ _ _”.
You can change the wording in the Status field to Indicate whatever Status your Work Order is in, such as: “New, Open, In Progress or Complete”. You can type anything you like into the Status field:
*Please note: at this time, if you have Parts Inventory turned ON, the duplication process will NOT copy any Parts over to the duplicated form. Parts will need to be added to the duplicated Work Order, by hand:
However, if you have Parts Inventory turned OFF, the Parts WILL copy over to the duplicated form:
Give the Duplicate function a try, and let us know what you think. We appreciate your feedback.
Were you once receiving New AD Email Notifications from us, but don’t seem to be lately?
It’s possible that AUTO-SPAM is the culprit!
If you’re not familiar with the concept of Auto-Spam, it’s fairly simple to understand, but not so simple to reverse.
Each email provider (Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, etc) has their own security system in place. They decide when an email could be a threat, and they act accordingly, typically marking it as spam, or bouncing it out entirely, so you never even see the message.
What triggers these providers to block, bounce, or mark emails from us as Spam?
Message ignored, rarely or never opened
Message frequently deleted, without ever having been read
When messages (from us or someone else) stack up in your inbox, your provider is paying attention.
THEY decide that if you are not interested, it’s highly possible that these ignored message are spam, whether it is true, or not.
Here’s what our email may look like, if it makes it through:
If you use GMAIL:
Go to your Spam folder, locate the email from us, click the checkbox and click “Not Spam“.
Or, open the message and click the “Report not spam” button (at top):
When you click “Report Not Spam”, the email is automatically placed back into your standard Inbox.
Did you notice some differences when working on a Logbook Entry?
We’ve made a few changes in appearance and layout, for the purpose of what is called WYSIWYG, meaning What You See Is What You Get.
The screen is now arranged to look as close to your final print out as possible.
A few changes you will notice are the placement of the buttons, which are now on the left side of the screen . There are quite a few buttons:
1. PRINT, for the small sticker labels. (We recommend one sheet of 4 labels, size 3-1/2″x5″, such as those by Avery 5168 (Laser) /8168 (Inkjet):
2. SAVE, allows you to save your changes. We encourage you to click Save quite often:
3. And a toggle button, between size SMALL LABELS (5168/8168) VIEW (size 3-1/2″ x 5″) and FULL PAGE VIEW, to display what an 8.5″ x 11″ sheet looks like. Click the buttons to toggle back and forth between small labels and full page:
When you are in the SMALL LABEL layout, the screen will display a small box to emulate a 3.5 x 5″ sticker label (such as Avery 5168/8168):
Click PRINT and select which location you need your label to print on: Top Right, or Top Left, Bottom Right or Bottom Left:
*Only the first 11 rows will print. If you need more room, we recommend you use Full Page View.
When you’re in the FULL PAGE layout, the box will appear larger, to emulate an 8.5″ x 11″ sheet:
Remember, you can trim the page down to fit into the logbooks. Click PRINT and select which style you prefer: Auto-Expand (recommended), or Single Page.
*We recommend you use Auto Expand print option so that your data will not be truncated. Use of single page print option will truncate your data after 53 lines.
