Add Work Location

A Work Location (WL) represents the site area within a design where work is done, where equipment is located, or both. Each WL is assigned a unique identification number within the work request. Work Locations may not be added in Workflow Manager. You must open the design in ArcMap.

  1. Open a design.
  2. Double-click the Work Location layer on the CUs tab under Designer Objects to add it to the Targets tab of the Attribute Editor. (You can also right-click and select Send to Targets.)
  3. On the Targets tab of the Attribute Editor, click WL Not Set.
  4. Define attribute values. Add the Work Request ID if the selected design associates the WL to it. Selections made on Designer CU to Work Location Assignment Options will determine the Work Location ID. You can also edit the attributes after you place the WL.
  5. Click the map to place the WL. You can place CUs and assign them to existing work locations. You can also place WLs automatically (see Configuration Guide in ArcCatalog).

    The symbology of the WL appears on the map. It will also appear in your open design on the Design tab. The Attribute Editor labels the location as "WL Not Set". You can click the Designer CU to Work Location Assignment button to place CUs and assign them to existing work locations. This function also renames the WL based on the options you select on the WL Assignment tab of Designer options.
