Note: The View Works Order option allows you to view the orders but not amend them.

 

Use the Manufacturing Instructions tab to add notes about the works order; for example, specific instructions which you would like to print on documents.

Any Manufacturing Instructions entered on the built item’s Bill of Materials are copied automatically to the Works Order as it is entered.

The Manufacturing Instructions can be enhanced by using Rich Text formatting features. These features can be used, for example, to highlight important instructions to production staff.

The font type, size and colour can be set to the whole text, or just to specific words or sections. Similarly, text can be made bold, underlined, or italicised.

 

Note: Rich Text formatting can be used in Sage layouts, but this requires the layouts to be produced using Crystal Reports instead of the standard Report Designer.

 

Enter required text then, to apply rich text features, highlight the section of text to format then choose from the Rich Text formatting options:

 

  • Font Style : Select the preferred font style from the drop-down list.
  • Font Size : Select the preferred font size from the drop-down list.
  • Bold : Click to set/unset the selected text as Bold.
  • Italic : Click to set/unset the selected text as Italicised.
  • Underline : Click to set/unset the selected text as underlined.
  • Font Colour : Select the preferred font colour from the palette.
