Printing a work order

From the calendar

  1. From the Appointments window, right-click on an appointment on the calendar and select Print work order.
  2. The work order will show in the print preview window. You can print it by clicking on the Print Report button on the top left corner or export and save it on your computer by clicking on the Export report button.

From the Point of sales

Follow the steps below to print work orders from the Point of sale.

  1. From the Point of sale, while an estimate is showing onscreen, click on the F11 W/O button or press F11 on your keyboard.
  2. The work order will show in the print preview window. You can print it by clicking on the Print Report button on the top left corner or export and save it on your computer by clicking on the Export report button.

Right-clicking on the F11 W/O button will also print a work order but will bypass the print preview window and send the work order directly to the printer. You can invert the click by activating option 40 - Reverse the clicks on the work order button in the GEM-CAR settings via Configuration > General information under the Options tab.
