    • When you find notes that you believe could be written better, please edit them accordingly.
    • Enter a note at the bottom of each RO which you have in process to help you to remember any details that you need to handle in some way to complete the job.
    • Use a note for any misc information that the tech has noted that does not relate to any of the other lines entered on the RO.
    • Add the appropriate notes to canned jobs when creating them.
    • For notes that you want to be able to see when working in the RO, but you do NOT want them to print on the RO, uncheck the PRINT ON ORDER box at the top of the notes box.
