Quick Edit Listing The Quick Edit Listing in MEX

The Quick Edit screen is an editable listing of all of the open Work Orders in the system, and from here:

  • A MEX user is able to edit the details of multiple Work Orders at once
  • Or quickly and easily create new Work Orders.

For example, if the wrong assets were accidentally assigned to a PM, and MEX had already raised the Work Orders for those assets. All you need to do is jump into Quick Edit and update all the new work orders created with the right assets.

Changing a Work Order in the Quick Edit listing is easy:

  • Simply open the menu and change any incorrect details on any open work order.
  • When the changes are complete, select the process button in the bottom ribbon to commit the changes.
  • To help avoid committing mistakes being saved on your Data, MEX will ask you to confirm your changes before you apply them

Save Confirm Quick Edit

Once satisfied simply select Yes to continue, MEX will then give you a notification to inform you the changes have been applied.

Save Complete Quick Edit

Creating a Work Order is as simple as clicking the ‘New’ button at the bottom of the screen and filling in the mandatory fields you need to save that Work Order in MEX. You can fill in the rest of your details later but for now you have a Work Order in the system to record work to.

Editing other Work Order fields

Note that the Quick Edit screen only allows you to enter a Work Order’s basic details, the majority of which is found on the Work Order’s Header and Details tab. If you wish to enter other information (for example Spares or Trades information) then you can mouse-click on the Work Order Number in the listing to open it in a new tab. The Work Order Number is hyper-linked to the Work Order’s details screen.

This will then open the WO in a new tab and log you in automatically, without consuming another MEX license. When you’re done editing, simply close this tab to go back to the Quick Edit screen.
