ML Schedules™ and ML Work Orders™ allow for a direct integration between the two systems.


This allows work orders to be created in ML Work Orders™ based on events entered through ML Schedules™ for setup requirements/cleanup, etc.


Click here for instructions on how to adjust the ML Work Order™ permissions, needed for this integration. 



Below are three settings that must be updated in ML Schedules to integrate ML Work Orders™:

    I. District Admin Settings

    II. Space Settings
    III. Fields Settings



I. Update District Admin Settings

1) Log into ML Schedules™ Software with District Admin credentials.

2) Select Admin > District Settings > District Admin.


3) Scroll down to the Integration Settings of the page.



4) Enter the domain of your District’s ML Work Orders website in the ML Work Orders Domain field. (i.e. https://ny57.mlworkorders.com)

5) Enter the email address that you would like work orders to show as being created by in the ML Work Orders User field. (i.e. MLSEvents@masterlibrary.com)

6) Enter the number of days before the event in which you would like the work orders to be generated.


7) Select the Save button at the bottom of the screen.

 


II. Update Space Settings

1) Select Admin > District Settings > Manage Spaces.
