This program is used to create and track work orders on the web. The administrator of the program controls who can have access to enter and modify orders. For example, as a client, you may only be allowed to view progress of work orders or you may be allowed to enter and update work orders. Staff have access to see what work has been assigned to them, accept the orders and update progress.  Managers have full access to update and delete orders.

As a web application, users can access the program from any location via the Internet or through your local network. You can work from any platform supporting a web browser, including UNIX machines, PCs and Macs.


To start the program, point your web browser to the address provided by the administrator. You should see the following screen. On the Internet Explorer Favorites menu, click Add to Favorites so you can open Web Work Order from the Favorites menu in the future. Netscape Navigator has a similar feature called Bookmarks.

To log onto the system, select your name from the drop down menu and enter your password. Click on the Login button to view the main screen:

Buttons allow you to browse forwards and backwards through the database of work orders. The work order Information can be edited on this page.

If you wish to change this date, make the changes and click on the Save button to save the changes. The Save button is disabled for user that are assigned guests accounts. Users with manager accounts can use the Delete button to remove the work order from the system.
