When you are working with IT changes and related work orders, you can open the work order related to a selected piece of equipment in the rack layout or navigation. Equipment with pending work order tasks are highlighted with pending change icons so you can quickly find them in the rack layout or navigation tree structure.
Finding a related work order task
You can select a piece of equipment in the rack layout and navigate to the related work order. The option is available both when working with Operations (Data Center) and Planning (Data Center).
- Right-click a piece of equipment in the rack layout (or navigation tree structure) and select Show Work Order to view the work order and see the tasks related to the selected equipment.
This option does not allow you to edit the work order but allows you to continue to work with the active operations.
When you are done viewing the work order, you can use the right-click navigation options to get back to what you were working with before you opened the work order.
Finding equipment related to a work order task
In the Work Order Editor, you can select a task and highlight the related equipment in the layout.
