Work Order Location

A sample work order header is given below:

Populate the event field with appropriate time and date or select from Now, Clear, TBA or NA. Select Now if the event has occured now. This will populate the event field with current date and time. Selecting Clear will simply clear the field. Select TBA if the time and date of the event is not known yet. Select NA for an event if it is not applicable for this work order.

Skipping events or leaving them blank is not allowed in TrakIT. Doing so produces the Out of Sequence error while populating event fields. This means that one or more events before the event being populated are missing. These missing events can be filled with NA or TBA to avoid this error. For events where Apply to T/D or Apply to S/I is selected, this error may come despite all previous events being filled. This is because the missing event check is also being applied to all work orders in the shipment. De-select the Apply to T/D or Apply to S/I checkbox for this event and then populate the event field.
