2019 Maxpanda Updates

March 31
  1. Radios Text Email Replies – Subject Line to include WO order Number. Body of WO to include WO details. WO system permits status change and updates to WO via Email reply. We’re changing the email account that sends out all work order notifications from NOREPLY@MAXPANDA.COM to WO@MAXPANDA.COM – you’ll be able to REPLY to emails updating the WORK ORDER STATUS. Added WORK ORDER ID in all subject line emails for integrational updates.
  2. Map View version 2 – There are over 25 new features being added to Map View V2. Map View will allow users to assign Assets to themselves (check in / check out) by scanning the Asset’s Qr Code. This will assist owners knowing where (geolocated) the Asset is at all times and who (Asset Assigned To) has the Asset in real time. Individual Assets can only be assigned to a single User. Asset Tracking (using GPS & Map View). Scan any Asset QR Code in your database, assign it to Staff A, track the asset on Map View as Staff A brings it to Staff B (in a different location). Staff A scans qr code, releases it to be assigned to Staff B.
  3. Add TOOL TIME (hrs/mins/sec) as a new data column to the ever popular SLA EXPORT Report.
  4. Assets are now ‘not limited’ by the Location drop-down-list on Part page. Assign any Location to Parts even if their assigned to an Asset.

  2. Auto-change required fields on the work order submit form based on the category and/or the priority selected by any Submitter.
  3. Admins/Editors/Supervisor to conduct PART AUDIT TRAILS.
  4. Creating a 2nd View Only role: Currently the Viewer role only shows WO’s assigned to it. This role will renamed VIEWER LIMITED.  The new role: Viewer Unlimited will Automatically VIEW (List and Map) work orders in areas they are assigned to. For example the entire ACCOUNT or SITE or BUILDING or LOCATION.
  5. Pre-assign TASKS to any WO Category ie) SUBMIT REQUEST PLUMBING CATEGORY, the pending work order will include relevant Task(s) speeding up the approval process.
  6. Remove closed, cancelled, rejected, completed WO’s from Calendar view. These are redundant and can slow down your browser.

This will allow optimal performance for all Users. Archived data will always be available even after the the 2 year period.
