This post will cover the following topics that are designed to help you re-group the stray Work Orders and prevent this issue from happening in the future by providing a short-term and a long-term solution.

Background: In certain situations, when the master record of a Work Order group does not get completed by it’s designated Target Date, the Work Order group will become ungrouped. This issue affects a limited amount of databases.

  1. Navigate to the Work Order module-Group tab of the affected record.ungroupedwo1
  2. Using the ‘Add’ button, re-attach the missing Work Orders to the Work Order groupungroupedwo2

Long-Term Solution (automatic re-grouping)

The long-term solution involves a straightforward process of running a script in either the SQL Studio Management Tool (On-Premise customers) or contact Maintenance Connection support for further assistance (hosted customers). A step-by-step set of instructions on how to run the script to resolve this issue can be found by logging in to MCUC and typing in the search term “Regroup”.
