Activating Crafts

Crafts define the type of preventive maintenance work that is being requested. Crafts give you a way to track and report on the type of preventive maintenance work your maintenance department is doing. (Example: HVAC, Fire Protection, Health/Safety, etc.) PMDirect has a predefined list of Crafts and you only need to activate the ones that apply to your preventive maintenance work.

How to Activate Crafts

  • Click on the Account Settings tab.
  • Click on the Crafts link.
  • This brings you to a list of the available Crafts. To activate a Craft, click on the gray thumbs-down (). The page will refresh and the icon will change to a yellow thumbs-up () to show that it is now activated. *Note: We recommend activating a few basic crafts (Fire Protection, HVAC, etc.) to start. It is easy to activate more later on, but it is more difficult to remove crafts after they have been in use.



       Bright Idea:

Make sure that the Crafts you activate in PMDirect are also activated in MaintenanceDirect for tracking and reporting purposes.
