Creating a new operation PWL
This document describes how to create a new Operation PWL.
InfoEx requires PWLs to be explicitly defined. Operation PWLs are defined by an operation and represent local PWLs in the snowpack. This allows PWLs to be tracked more easily and offers opportunities for advanced queries.
Operation PWLs are managed by operations, which have full control over the characteristics of these PWLs.
A new Operation PWL can be created in two different ways:
- Via the Operation PWL menu item under the PWL heading (online only)
- Via the Snowpack workflow module (online only)
|NOTE||It is strongly recommended to use the Snowpack workflow module rather than the Operation PWL menu for both creating and updating your Operation PWLs. The first exception to this is if you need to edit the fields that can only be accessed via the PWL menu i.e. Name, Date, Comment (the header comment in the PWL menu is DIFFERENT from the detail comment accessed via the snowpack workflow module - it is the workflow detail comment that appears in reports), Community PWL or Colour. The second exception is if you need to create PWLs to be used when using Workflows offline: PWL details can be updated whilst offline, however a PWL cannot be created when offline.|
