Create a Default Work Order Job


Default job can be set up to allow speedier work order creation.

A routine was developed to allow a Default job to be automatically inserted in a new Work Order created in Update Work Orders. This could speed up check-ins to the Service Department at high volume time periods.

This new feature is only available in G2.

To Set Up a Default Job which activates the Default Button in Update Work Orders, user will need to sign into G2. Once in G2, select G2 Admin> Setup> Update Module Configurations, left-click on the Service tab.

Config# 160 must contain a Canned Job (this is the key to activating the Default Job feature.

Config# 161 must contain ”E” for External, “I” for Internal or “W” for Warranty.

Config# 162 must contain an Internal Bill Code (if Config# 161 was set to “I”) or Warranty Customer # (if Config# 161 was set to “W”).
