Work Order Master Information


The information in this section can be edited, with the exception of WO Number, which can only be modified in EQuIS.


To improve readability on the Edit WO window, sections are collapsible. This section is collapsed by default to allow more screen space for remaining sections. The picture above shows it in an expanded state.



WO Samples Tab


This tab displays COC samples assigned to an SRN work order and allows the user to add/remove samples to/from the work order.


To add samples, click Add. A new form will be shown, allowing for a single COC. After selection, all samples from the selected COC not belonging to the edited WO will be added. A status message will show how many samples were added and how many were skipped.



SPM will save the current WO before adding samples.

Only samples from one COC can be added to the WO.


The Select COC window, along with relevant information messages, indicate samples which have been added.
