Standardizing Consistency of Approval/Refusal Methods

If users have entered various approval/refusal methods inconsistently, they can be standardized through a few simple steps. When opening the approval/refusal methods setup area, answer Yes to extract newly entered approval/refusal methods if this option has been enabled (see module option “Prompt to extract newly entered Approval/Refusal Methods” under Setup Module Options). Then browse through the list and correct any variances by editing each incorrect record and typing in what the approval/refusal method should have been, even if it is already in the list. Make sure that the Update existing Repair Order records box is checked before saving. All repair order records will automatically be updated with the correct approval/refusal method so that your data is consistent.
