RTA Web - Bulk Actions

Bulk Actions allow users to take the same action on multiple items at a time within a module to which the user has access to via their assigned user group.

The object of this feature is to save time and organizational stress by selecting multiple lines in the same module, and performing an “action”.

Modules containing the ability to use Bulk Actions include the following:

  • Work Order Lines

  • PMs Due

  • Assign Jobs

  • Requests

  • Purchase Order Lines

See below for instructions on using bulk actions in these modules.

Work Order Lines

When on the Work Order screen, scroll down to see the Work Order Lines. The option is called “Bulk Actions”

Refer to Work Order Lines for more details on work order lines in RTA Web.

The Actions that can be used are Assign and Close

Bulk Assign

This option allows the user to select multiple work order lines and assign the selected lines to a technician in one fell swoop.

Click on Bulk Actions > Bulk Assign > Click the checkbox for each line you wish to assign to a certain Technician.

Bulk Close

This option allows the user to select multiple work order lines and close those lines, as long as all closing requirements are met.

When selected, use Apply in the Lines box

Any of the lines which are unable to close, for various reasons, will error with details shown:

The user has the option to Cancel, backing out of the Bulk Close option and resolve the issues, or they can choose Resolve and the issues are highlighted for each line. For the example of the Notes being required (seen above), click Resolve and the “!” will show on lines 2 and 3 under the correct tabs. This eliminates the need to search for the error, it’s highlighted for you.

Once the issues are resolved (the notes are properly inputted), use the Close button at the bottom to finish each line. Once all issues have been resolved, the lines will be closed.
