Work Type Management

This feature has been discontinued. You can now use its updated and improved version: Record Templates

Work Type is a template for the services in a work order. Use these templates to add the service details to the work orders quickly and to avoid repetitive data entry. A work type will be used while creating a service to link the skills and parts to a service. When a service (with which a work type is linked) is added to a work order, the skills and parts associated with the service automatically get added to the work order.
