To search for your Orders in Beyond, begin by selecting the 'Job Order Search' button in the upper left corner of Beyond:

If you are on a smaller device (including mobile phone) the search option will be available in the B for Beyond menu:

There are two types of searches that can be conducted in Beyond: 

  1. Basic Search- A simple search that will allow the user to find Orders in their system by customer and/or status.
  2. Advanced Search- A search consisting of rules and groups to find specific orders and/or groups of Orders.


Basic Searching

Four fields will define any basic search: 

  1. Customer name- When used, this field will filter results to only include Orders belonging to a specific customer.
  2. Job Order ID- Every Job Order has an ID. This field is used to look up a specific order by its ID.
  3. Status- When used, this field will filter results to only include records that are active, inactive, or it can be set to view any status.
  4. Filled- When used, this field will filter results to only include Job Orders that are considered unfilled, filled, or it can be set to view any order regardless of whether it is filled or not.

*Note* Though filled and unfilled are Job Order statuses, the status field here refers to the activation status of the order. Filled and unfilled orders are both considered active.

In the example below, the user is attempting to view unfilled, active orders for a specific Customer:

Job Order Statuses

From the moment a Job Order is created in Beyond, it is given a status. A status defines the relationship between your company and the order itself. This can reflect whether the order needs attention and to be filled, whether it has already been filled and is now a working order, or perhaps it is historical in nature. Updating the status tells you how to treat the order.

Order Status can be found the visifile of the order under the snapshot card: 

Order Status Flow

The default status of every newly created order is "Unfilled." This is the first status of three that can be considered the natural flow of the order. As employees are assigned to the Job Order, the number assigned increases until the number assigned matches or exceeds the number required. When this happens, the Job Order's status will automatically flip to "Filled." The order is then considered to be a working order. Once all the assignments on an Order have been given a terminal assignment status, the order should be then closed, thus completing the natural flow of the Job Order.The Natural Flow of the Order


Additional Job Order Statuses

On the Job Order record, several statuses indicate how the order is viewed in the system. While users may not use every default status to track their Order, it is useful to understand what role each Order status is intended to fill. Below is a comprehensive guide to each Order status and how it may be utilized in the system.

*Note* These statuses may be changed via your company preferences. Please work with TempWorks Support.
