These customizations can be made in the ERP system and/or can be manually maintained in the SQL database. Clients interested in utilizing this custom functionality should contact NovoRoi Systems for training and setup assistance.

Select Work Group

Use the selection bar and the GO button at the top of the screen to display a single Work Group or to display all Work Groups in the Workorder Workbench.

Please note: If you type in a partial Work Group name or number and hit the up or down arrow key, the result displayed will be the first Work Group that begins with the letter or numbers typed. For example, if there is Work group called 98 and a Work Group called 99, typing a “9” into the selection bar and hitting an up or down arrow key will display Work Group 98.
    • Anytime the cursor is in the selection bar, use the up and/or down arrow key to move through the list of available Work Groups.
  • To display all of the Work Groups again after having only one Work Group selected, use the up arrow key or the slide bar in the drop down selection box to maneuver up to the top of the list. All of work groups will be displayed when you have the empty spot at the top of the list highlighted.
