There are many different types of 'Work Requests' that are utilized by FMX sites. The most common of these are ones like 'Maintenance Requests' and 'Technology Requests' but many organizations use work request modules like: Key Requests, HR Requests, Custodial Requests, and many others. 


Each custom module follows a similar framework and thus, the create process is identical excluding any custom fields.

To create a new custom work request, please follow the instructions below.

Custom Work Request Module

1. From your calendar, click on the custom work request module.

*We will use Maintenance Request module as an example.

2. Click on the New request button in the upper right-hand corner of the grid view.

3. Fill out the custom work request form with the required information; these are fields that contain an asterisk (*).
