3: Refine Your Search

The results of your initial search are displayed on a Search grid. Use the filters above the grid to refine your search even further (for example, by date range or location in a work order search). Clicked the blue hyperlinked portion of the record to open it.

Using Global Add New

When you click the Add New button, a drop down list of options appears. Click the item that you wish to add. A new smart tab opens allowing you to enter the details for a new record.


Because the Add New button is visible from all pages, you can easily add any type of new record from any page in the system. For example, if you're currently looking at a Fixed Asset record, and you get a call about a new work order, you can quickly click Add New > Work Order to enter that new work order without having to navigate elsewhere.
