Converting a Standard Activity into a Job
Standard activities can manually be converted into jobs via the worklist to schedule maintenance.
Standard activities that can be converted into actual maintenance jobs are identified with yellow books. The next occurrence of the same standard activity is identified with a red book and cannot be converted into a job until its predecessor has been converted/completed.
Authorised users can convert multiple standard activities into multiple jobs if required by selecting multiple yellow books.
- Standard Activities are represented by Yellow or Red books in the workbench.
