Job status maintenance

Job status has various functions. It allows you to group jobs, which makes reporting more effective. It also allows you to drill down selections, control automated events, and restrict the availability of jobs in Tekla PowerFab Go.

You can create as many statuses as you want in Tekla PowerFab, but any status applied to a job has one of the two purposes:

  • Open: Active jobs
  • Closed: Jobs that are no longer active.
