Standard Operating Procedures
Configure Phase Statuses
The phase status indicates the current condition of the phase. Phase statuses are filtered by the type and category of work. The work order field represents the parent work order for the selected phase. The budget field behavior is based on the budget editable setting on the Phase Status Setup Screen. The location field will reflect the location/space/room (if applicable) associated with the property assigned to the work order.
The Phase Status Setup Screen was enhanced by replacing the PM Complete Status Flag with a PM Complete Checkbox that can be applied to any status (in the same way Allow Invoicing can be applied to any phase status). This new setting will have the sole purpose of setting the PM Last Date for assets on ‘Timed’ PM phases and regenerating the projected dates for those assets. This setting could be flagged for multiple statuses, but cannot be triggered multiple times for the same phase. The upgrade script will set existing PM Complete Phase Statuses to the first Phase Work Complete Status.
|Phase Status||Phase Flag||Phase Flag Description|
|Open||Not Complete||Not complete indicates that the phase is still in progress and eligible for edits and financial transactions.|
|Assigned||Not Complete||Not complete indicates that the phase is still in progress and eligible for edits and financial transactions.|
|On Hold||Not Complete||Not complete indicates that the phase is still in progress and eligible for edits and financial transactions.|
|Awaiting Parts||Not Complete|
|Work Complete||Not Complete|
|Canceled||Cancel||Cancel indicates the phase is canceled and no further transactions are allowed.|
|Closed||Complete||Complete indicates that the phase is complete (closed) and no further edits or financial transactions are allowed.|
In order to keep accurate data for Billing, additional Phases statuses have been added in AiM (see screen shot below). These statuses allow Work Orders/Phases that are type and category combination to be ignored by billing if it is decided after the work order is created that it should not be billed. Only FINANCE and OPERATIONS CENTER MANAGEMENT roles can see these statuses.
