Adding location assignments

Location Assignments will allow you to limit the work orders your technicians can see in their work order list. When you assign a technician to a location, they will only have access to view work orders at that location as well as work orders they have created and work orders that are directly assigned to them. If a technician also has Work Category Assignments, then they will see work orders tied to the work categories assigned to their department as well. You can manage Location Assignments through the user's account or the location's details. *Note: If the technician has access to other sites, you have the ability to assign them locations for those sites as well. If they are not assigned to any locations for the other sites, then they will see work orders that they have created or are assigned to for all locations within those sites.


       Bright Idea:

We recommend using Location Assignments to allow your technicians to only see work that is relevant to them. This will also encourage technicians who typically work at a particular location to complete the necessary work in a more efficient manner. While this feature is available for all user roles within the Full User type, it is designed to be used for the Technician user role.

For example: If you have one or more technicians who are in charge of only completing work at the Parts Warehouse, then you can assign those users to the location of Parts Warehouse in order for them to see work orders tied to that location in their work order list. This would optimize their day to day experience by only seeing work orders that are relevant to them.
