If you have used the built in Maximo Assignment Manager module, you probably wanted to pick up your computer and throw it out the window. In my opinion, the assignment manager module and far from being user friendly and all it’s meant to do is associate a name to a workorder. Of course it is supposed to do more than that, but in its most simplest form, assigning a labor or craft to a workorder couldn’t be more difficult. Another annoying aspect of the assignment manager is that you have to open a completely different module, other than Work Order Tracking, in order to assign workorders. That, in and of itself, is very annoying to any user. One way around this, is to obviously use our very own add-on module, WebAssign which has the ability to batch assign workorders. But if purchasing WebAssign isn’t an option for you, you can simply add an “Assignment” tab in the Work Order Tracking module to do just that, assign workorders. This tab basically uses the logic of the Assignment Manager module without all of the overhead. You can simply click on “Add a New Assignment” to a workrorder and you’re done. The record is still saved in the assignment table, so if you choose to still use the Assignment Manager, it will all be there.
