Client Maintenance Plans are critical for ensuring the appropriate service recall date for your client's assets. Each client can have completely unique maintenance plans with multiple segments and service interval logic to match their internal SOPs.
These plans must be configured in the client's ACCOUNT tab in the Client Manager:
Select the client you would like to edit or add Maintenance Plans:

The Maintenance Plan name is a free form field, and it should be named something that helps to distinguish which types of unit the plan applies to. You will also have the opportunity to select a single instrument category or multiple instrument categories to restrict the plan to one or more types of instruments. You can also select "Any Category" to create a generic plan that can be applied to any instrument type. To save time, users have the ability to select from pre-configured maintenance plan templates. These templates are created in the 'Maintenance Plans' screen (hover over Assets on the main menu bar and click Maintenance Plan).
Click "OK" to instantly create the plan, you can review the plan and see that there are not yet any tasks assigned to this new plan. "Maintenance Tasks" are critical to guide asset recall as they define the service interval and the service level. Click on the plan name to add Maintenance Tasks:
Assign the name of the Task and select the service interval as well as any recall or grace period guidelines. When the service interval is set to 'Every', the due date can be forced to be any of the following options:
Select Service Level in the Service Provider tab to include your customer's service preferences:
