We have used the Michigan Templates for making PM work orders. They are very thorough. Since we've begun using iPads for labor entry, and no longer have the paper work orders, we have no place for the technicians to check off the tasks completed. I was thinking of adding either a Journal Note or even a new task stating that by entering hours the technician is saying he/she completed each task as outlined in the work order. Any thoughts on that, or if you have a better way, it would be appreciated.
ALSO, we have (for instance) 28 roof top units at one of our locations that need PM on a regular basis. Add this to the equipment in the rest of this particular building and then think of all of these PMs being generated at once, or even over a period of a week. The technicians are looking at their "Home" tab and seeing "Monthly - Boiler - refer to PM schedule details," so there is nothing to say where in the building the equipment is or in some instances what particular piece of equipment it is unless you open the work request. I would LOVE some ideas on how to make that page in the "Home" tab more user friendly for our technicians. I just see (in my mind's eye) technicians doing the work efficiently and then getting hung up on finding the correct PM work request to enter their hours. Anyone else run into this? Or have a work around, or a better method of entering PM work requests?
