Is there a way to get iterating fields like “Item Summary” to auto fill with descriptions that have been used on this WO/Quote/PM so that they do not have to be retyped over and over. We service fire extinguishers and having to write “Fire Extinguisher Service” on 60+ lines (each one is a unit) is time consuming. Plus the auto fill would help keep errors down.
We would suggest using the template feature - where you create a template with pre-entered text and selections and save. When creating a new workorder, select the appropriate template.
See more http://www.ayanova.com/AyaNova7webHelp/service_workorder_templates.htm for service workorder templates, http://www.ayanova.com/AyaNova7webHelp/quote_templates.htm for quote templates and http://www.ayanova.com/AyaNova7webHelp/preventive_maintenance_templat.htm for PM templates.
That is currently what we do… We have templates saved with say 20 lines, it is just when we get clients with say 200 units all of a sudden we do not want to use 10 pre-done WOs to speed things up. I would be nice if lines could almost ‘ghost’ what was written before if it matched what was being typed in the current line. I know this is likely a limit in Dev Express but do you think that it would be possible to write a script to get that done??
Yes, possibly something could be custom created using an AyaScript as you say!
Please send directly to firstname.lastname@example.org the following, and I would be happy to forward to development to provide you with an estimate to create custom for you:
[li]copy of your ayalog.txt file (so can confirm version of AyaNova in use)
[/li][li]identify which specific fields in a new workorder item record in the workorder item grid of the workorder, you want auto-filled with what specific info when the AyaScript is initiated. (If a selection field rather than a text field (i.e. Item Summary is a text field, whereas Workorder Item Status is a selection field) the exact spelling of actual selection would be needed too.)
[/li][li] screenshot example of existing workorder item record that has this same text and selections
[/li][li] any other details and aspects of this specific custom script you would like it to perform
