Once you have saved this work order, you will see a wrench icon appear next to the property name, indicating you have an open work order. 

Sending and Receiving Workorder Emails

There are many ways to customize setting options for sending and receiving workorder emails depending on the sender and recipient. 
Tenants portals are automatically set to have the option to submit workorders and the program is also set to send the account administrator an email on file in  Your Contact Information in Settings
When a workorder is completed that was submitted by a tenant, they will automatically receive an email letting them know the workorder is closed. 
To disable the Tenant Portal workorder options follow these instructions. 
In your Rentec Direct account: 
  1. Click Settings.
  2. Click Program Settings.
  3. Under Portal Settings, choose NO.

If you wish to email individual workorders to owners, simply open a workorder and follow the  print/email work ticket link at the top right for options.
