Work orders can be set up to use a standardized naming convention using variables (fields). You can also add a custom name for each work order created. Without setting this up, the default name will be a date/time stamp.
When using a standard naming convention, you can include any of the variables provided in the list as well as text. The naming convention used in the image above represents commonly used variables. In the example above, once products have been selected in a project, the work order would receive the name “12345 -Training_12345-####.” The minute and second variables help to create a unique number that will help prevent duplicate work order names and the potential of overwriting an existing work order.
Standardized work order names can be edited without overriding the setup by using the Properties button in the Work Order Creation interface.
It is recommended to create a standard naming convention that will work for your company.
