How to Prevent Work Order Finalization Before Parts Required are Moved to Actual Configuration

In IDS Astra G2, there is now a way to prevent finalizing a work order before all the required parts have been moved to the actual configuration on that work order.

In G2 Admin > Setup > Update Module Configurations, select the Service tab.  

Service Config #171 will allow each dealership to choose what happens if all the parts required have not been moved to the actual configuration when a work order is finalized. The options are:

  • Y = display a warning message if the required and actual part quantities are not the same when trying to finalize the work order.
  • N = allow finalizing of the work order without a warning regardless of the parts required quantities.
  • M = make it mandatory that all parts have the same quantity on the parts required and actual view. If not, a message will come up saying that the finalization is being aborted. One of the required or actual quantities will need to be changed to allow the finalization.
