  • 1.  New Map Tool - WORelatedRecordsTool

    Posted Tue March 15, 2022 10:08 PM

    As a result of APAR IJ36787, a new map tool is available.  You must be on Spatial 7.6.1 and have iFix 011 installed to use this new tool.  The tool can be enabled for the Work Order Tracking application.  When this tool is enabled, multiple pins will be displayed on the map tab for a single work order if the work order has tasks with an asset/location referenced that has geometry or if assets/locations are populated in the multi asset/location table that have geometry. 


    An example of a use case with screenshots below is a work order to take cathodic protection readings for test points.  I have assets set up for the test points and linked with ESRI point features.  I have one work order with 3 assets in the multi asset table.  Each asset has its own linked ESRI feature.  When I open the map tab I can see the new tool in the toolbar.  I have the tool turned on and the option for viewing multiple symbols based on the multi asset location table.  I can see 3 pins on the map since there are 3 assets with geometry on the work order.

    Thanks! it is exactly what our business requires during natural gas distribution network inspections. However I'm not sure it will work with our huge multiasset lists where we have hungreds and thouthands of assets in some cases. I've increased and will test work orders.

    Are the any plans to add this functionality for Anywhere technician map?

    Hi, let me know how your testing goes.  In the map in Maximo you will see a query task executed to locate and place a pin for each asset so it may be a bit slow with 1000 assets.  I just tested with 300 assets linked with ESRI line features and it wasn't too bad though.  

    We won't be adding this feature to Maximo Anywhere as Anywhere won't receive any additional development.  We just added this feature to our Map in Maximo Mobile in our 8.9 release that was available on November 22nd.

    There is a new map tool than can be enabled.

    When the map tool is enabled, you can then click on a work order pin.

    The work order number will be displayed and you can click on that and 1 pin for each asset in the multi asset table will be displayed.  Note: in this 8.9 release we only support work order points, but in our upcoming release we will support lines and polygons too.  I am loading a demo environment with new spatial data now and I will try with 1000 records and report back to you on performance and include some screenshots.
