We’re always trying to come up with new was to make the workflow more intuitive so this week, we have introduced a number of workflow improvements designed to speed up productivity. The following is a list of recent product enhancements and workflow improvements:
Drag & Drop – Speeds up file uploads nicely!
We mentioned this in a previous blog and its now live! Maintenance Assistant CMMS now has drag and drop functionality for file uploads throughout the CMMS. With this intuitive feature, technicians can upload files directly to the server with one unassuming click of a button. When you are in the file tab on an asset, work order, scheduled maintenance or part record, simply drag your file over the box and release. The file will then be uploaded to the server. You can drag single or multiple files at once. The progress icons on the top left will let you know when the upload is complete. Please ensure you have the latest version of browser installed to ensure this new functionality works seamlessly.
Reports Categories – Find what you need quickly
We went a bit crazy adding new reports over the last few months. With over 120 reports, it became impossible to find the report you need without having to troll through the long list. In the latest release, we’ve introduced a filter at the top of the reports screen that lets you filter by report type. So, if you’re looking for open work orders or advanced business metrics, simply select that option from the drop down menu to quicken your search.
Bill of Materials Quick Add
Formally, parts were added one at a time to BOM lists. Now you can add multiple parts in one go with minimal effort. Simply click on the parts you want to add to the BOM and they get moved into the BOM list instantly. Please ensure you have the latest version of browser installed to ensure this new functionality works seamlessly.
What happens when you haven’t refreshed your screen and work requests are coming in thick and fast? With the new auto refresh feature on the dashboard and work order screens, the system auto refreshes itself so new requests or assigned work orders are visible as soon as they come in without having to refresh your browser every 5 minutes.
We hope you enjoy the latest workflow improvements to Tasks. The PO module is on schedule for end October and we’ve plenty more planned in the near future including GPS coordinates on the asset record.
