Adding a Template

In The WorxHub, you can create templates for common tasks. Use templates to quickly and easily assign these tasks to the appropriate department.

 

To access the Template settings in TheWorxHub:

Creating a Work Order Template

  • Click on Add Work Order Template.
  • Select the Department that the template applies to from the Department drop down.
  • Select a Priority for the template.
  • Click on the Location Picker () to select a Location for the template. *Note: Selecting a location is an optional step. The location selected here will not copy over to the work order form when applying a template.
  • Enter a Description of the work that needs to be performed.
  • Type any additional details and notes in the Details box. *Note: This is an optional step. If you choose to skip this step you can enter step-by-step tasks instead.
  • Click on Add New Task to choose what type of tasks you'd like to add.
  •  In the pop-up window, select a Task Type from the drop-down menu, and then click the plus sign icon (). *Note: You are able to add different task types to the task list.
  • The information you enter in the task field will depend on the Task Typeyou select:
    • Checkbox: This option is common for simple task lists where each step is documented, and you want to track which tasks have been completed vs. not completed.
    •  Barcode scan: This is a unique task type where you can specify that step 1 require you to scan the asset barcode for the equipment that you're working on. This helps to prove that a technician was actually at the required location. * Note: You can only complete a barcode task type from your mobile device where barcode scanning is supported.
    •  Text form data input: This option is used when you need to input free form text data, such as the start time of when you began the generator test, or capturing a qualitative value on the condition of the equipment.
    •  Numeric form data input: This option is used whenyou need to capture a measurement, but there is no requirement to link that input to any sort of corrective action, such as capturing the volts of the generator.
    •  Meter Reading: This option is used when you need to capture a reading on a pre-existing meter, such as water temperatures thresholds or odometer reading incremental meters. *Note: Meter reading style tasks can trigger action from a meter based scheduled work order.
    • Pass/Fail: This task type will automatically trigger a corrective work order template from the failure. Because this question type requires you to leverage a pre-existing template, it's important to review any pass/fail tasks to ensure an appropriate template exists and it linked to the task.
  • Add as many tasks as needed and click Save when you're finished.
  • Select a Category to specify the type of work being done. Then select a Subcategory to further describe the work. *Note: The Category you select will determine the Subcategories listed in the pick list.

    • Daily- Select either Every (_) day(s) or Every weekday. Example: For work that needs to be done every day including weekends, enter Every (1) day.

Setting your schedule using a meter based recurrence allows you to generate work orders at certain intervals based on the meter readings. You must set up Asset Meters or Site Meters first before you are able to create a Meter Based Recurrence schedule.

  • Expand the Meter Based Recurrence section of the Recurrence window and select Only use meter based recurrence.
  • Check the box next to the meter this schedule will be based on. *Note: If you are selecting a Site Meter, you can check the box above the meter list to use the meter reading location when generating this work order.
  • Click Save.
