Conserving resources by pausing non-critical PMs

There are only so many hours in a day and now that your staff is devoting time to COVID-19 related issues, you may need to conserve your resources and reprioritize some of their existing work. One way to do this is by pausing some of your non-critical PMs, so that they do not generate new work orders during this pandemic.


Focus on critical assets and high priority work

We know you and your staff already have a full plate and now with the additional COVID-19 related work, you are juggling multiple needs and prioritizing that work accordingly. You can use Asset Essentials to communicate the high priority items to your staff by using the Priority field on the work order and the Criticality field on the Asset.


Tag and track resources

Social distancing is key in helping to prevent the spread of COVID-19, so it is important to know where your staff is located and to schedule their work accordingly. For assistance on managing your staff you can apply Custom Fields to your users to keep track of essential versus non-essential employees. You can also utilize the Monthly Calendar view to help plan the work for the day so that your Technicians are not working closely to one another.
