    Parent WO for Assignment

    Grzegorz Harmas

      We're starting to use the Assignments a little more, but I can't find one thing I think would be useful: go to the parent Work Order from the Assignment level, or at least the way of finding this Work Order. Am I missing something, or is it not possible?

          On the Assignement Work Order screen, click the button next to the Assignment Number to go to the parent Work Order.

            We use this feature to keep track of projects that involve different IT staff.  I open a parent work order at the beginning of a project.  I then create assignments for different phases or needs of the project.



            Parent work order: Replace Server

            Assignment 1:  Purchase server

            Assignment 2:  Test server

            Assignment 3:  Deploy


            We keep track of hours in the assignments, and the parent work order sums the totals of the hours.

              We use it in slightly different way: the team gets requests to set up events for sale. Because they usually run for some time, there often are changes: new prices, deals, discounts etc. to set up after the original event went live. All these additional requests go as assignments, so the whole history is clearly visible.
