Attempts to create associated PMs using a master PM with no item referenced results in no associated PMs being created.
Create a new Master PM record
Tick checkbox Create Associated PMs for Item's Location and tick checkbox Create Associated PMs for Item's Asset
Go to job plan sequence tab, add a new job plan. Click the arrow besides the job plan field to bring up a value list and select the appropriate job plan.
Go to select action menu, choose create associated PM
There are no assets listed to be used for the associated PM in the Create Associate PMs
No Item has been referenced on the master PM, it appears an Item is needed in order to create associated PMs
Resolving the problem
The Master PM application does NOT necessarily need an ITEM.
A PM record can be associated to a master PM from within the PM
create the master PM in the Master PM application.
then go to the PM application and recall each record you want associated with the master PM and reference the master PM in the Master PM field for each PM record.
