A Work Request can be used in several ways. The primary use is to receive requests from others outside the maintenance staff and then either resolve the issue at the request level or create a Work Order to resolve the issue.
To create a request, you can access the form in several ways: ManagerPlus Mobile App, Request Management Console, and a Request Portal.
