New Update to TheWorxHub

July 6, 2013

Late last night we rolled out an update to TheWorxHub. Read below to see what's new.

Cancel Project Action Added

On your Projects tab, you now have access to a new action - Cancel Project. This allows you to cancel the project, state a reason and have it removed from your dashboard. In order to cancel the project, here's what you'll need to do:

  • Cancel any work orders that are part of the project that aren't yet complete. Use the Update Status action to cancel the work orders.
  • Click the Cancel Project mouse-over action on the project header record.
  • Enter a Reason for Cancellation.
  • Click Save. The project is removed from your dashboard.

After a project has been cancelled, you can still find it under Search > Projects. You can filter on a project status of cancelled, view the cancellation date in the search results and view the cancellation reason in the pop-up project summary. 


Work Order Search Speed Boost

We've added a huge optimization to Search > Work Orders to speed up searching. In our tests we're seeing speed increases of over 60%!

Printed Filter and Printed Icon in Billings to Send Dashboard

Sometimes where you're tracking a lot of billables and printing invoices, it's hard to keep track of which items you've already printed and which items still need to be printed. We've added a new function to your Billings to Send dashboard indicator which lets you filter the list to just show those that have yet to be printed. Also, a printed icon displays next to records to show that a record has been printed.

Schedule Work Order from Calendar with Click and Drag

An enhancement has been added to the Weekly and Staff view of the calendar allowing you to add a new work order and schedule an appointment time in one click.

While in the Weekly or Staff view, click on a start time and drag your mouse until you reach the desired end time. When you release your mouse button, a new work order form pops-up with the due date and appointment times already set.

Discontinued Inventory Option Added

When an inventory item is no longer used by your department, you can mark the item as Discontinued. This will remove the item from your Assign Inventory lists, and hide it from Search. A new search filter -- Include Discontinued Inventory -- allows you to search discontinued items when needed.

Discontinue -inventory
