Managing Timelines

At any time, the dates on a Work Order Status can be changed as plans change.

When changing the dates on a Work Order Status, it is important to first determine whether the dates on any future Work Order Statuses on the Blend Plan should also be updated.

There are 2 checkboxes that control whether or not changes to dates on a work order status should also flow through to future work order statuses, and child work plans.

Respect Dependencies When Changing Start Dates

Unchecked by default

With this checkbox checked, updating the start date on a work order status then results in updates to the start and end dates on all subsequent work plans, by the same number of days.

If only the Work Order Status being touched is to be updated, then ensure the 'Respect dependencies on start dates' checkbox is NOT checked.

Note, any changes to end dates will not result in changes to other Work Order Statuses.

Update Child Work Plans When Work Order Status Changes

Checked by default

With this checkbox checked, any changes to the dates against a work order status will flow through to the child work plans.
