There are the following view controls available:

  • Orders: Here you can change the order and product.

To change and order or product. Click the Change order button:

Provide the order name for the next order on a unit:

The default order, that the control suggests uses the following structure: year + Month + Day + order runs on the date + 1. So the example above is 2020 = year, 9 = month, 10 = day, 1 = Order runs on the date + 1.

Select a product for the next order on a unit.

You can now start an order by clicking the Start Order button:

If a order is running, then you can stop the active order by clicking the End Current order button.

  • Current stop: Here you can split current active stops and start breaks:

Active stop

If a stop is active on the unit then its stop cause and duration will be shown.

There is no active stop on the unit here:

There is a active stop on the unit here:

Split active stop

You can split the active stop into 2 stops on the unit.

Clicking the split button, splits all active stops into 2 stops.

If the Split button not shown, then you have to setup it first:

Go to Configuration->Units:

Select your unit:

Check Show split stop button:

Select your stop event servers. (The stops that you see on a unit are created from event servers or from a break button, a full description of splinting stops can be found in How to split current stops on a unit)

Click the Save button:

Breaks

 See Show break button on how to configure and show the break buttons.

To start a break, click the break button.

You can see that the unit is on a break, when a big blinking end break button is show:

To end the break, click the break button again.

  • Uncategorized stops: Here you can categorize stops:

The number of stops that can be categorized into more specific stop causes is shown:

To categorize the stops click the Categorize stops button:

A list of stops that can be categorized will be shown.

Select a stop by clicking the Categorize button:

 

Now you can select a stop cause based on the tree structure of the stop causes:

A full description of this window can be found in How to use stop reason tree structure under the section Categorize a stop.

 The ! icon shows that the stop cause needs a comment.

A full description of commenting on stops can be found in How to comment on stops

You can configure the list of stops, that can be categorized, to be updated automatically when it is open. See Auto update of "Categorize stops"

You can also update the list manually by click the refresh icon:

 

  • Report rejects: Here you can register produced times that was rejected:

You can manually add rejects to the current order,  if you have set your unit's Rejects registrered by to User.

Then the Report rejects controls will be shown:

To add rejects to the current order, select the amount and click the Add button.

If you manually change the order, then you need to provide the total amount of rejects for the current order:

Because changing the order manually with Rejects registrered by set to User, will overwrite the current order's rejects if there is a difference between your input and the registered rejects in current order before ending it.

The point of the using the Report rejects control, is that you can on the fly report the rejects as they occur and have this shown in the reports like Reports->Period, if you wait with reporting the rejects until you stop the current stop, then this will result in one timestamp for all the rejects.
