Checklist Template

Add checklist template lines to existing work orders


In standard Asset management, you can set up checklists on maintenance job types. When you create work orders, those checklists are automatically transferred to the work orders that use the maintenance job types.

We have extended this functionality to allow you to add checklist lines from a checklist template to existing work orders.


In standard Asset management, you have created setup for assets and work orders.
