    Title:
    Automatic Release of Scheduled Preventive Maintenance Work Orders
    Summary:
    Is it possible to schedule the automatic release of scheduled preventive maintenance WO
    Content:

    Hi,

    We are looking for the automatic release of scheduled preventive maintenance on the basis of the date range. 

    For example, if the work orders are scheduled as per the forecast. Now, if the person who is supposed to release the work orders is going on leave for a week. How that person can ensure that the work orders scheduled in that particular week will get released.

    Is there any way to release the work orders automatically based on a date range, so that the user can just schedule the automatic release of WO by giving the date range.

    Please confirm.

    Thanks

      Hi Ekansh-

      Have you looked at the 'Generate Maintenance Forecast' process?  There are 'Advanced Options' that provide the ability to 'Schedule' it.  Is that what you are looking for?

      Hi Jennifer,

      As far as I understand, scheduling 'Generate Maintenance Forecast' process will create the work orders on the basis on a maintenance program. I am not sure if it will release the work orders as well.

      Please confirm.

      Thanks

        Hi Ekansh-

        Unfortunately, you are correct - we can only generate the forecasts as 'Unreleased' Work Orders.   The user could then change the status manually and see the 'Released' WOs on the gantt chart. 

        In my opinion, PMs should be generated in a 'Released' status given they are planned.  I need to make sure we have an ER in our backlog to enable the user to determine what statuses they should be generated in.
