What's the Meaning of MainBoss Advanced icons?

MainBoss Advanced uses a number of icons to mark information.

For an explanation of icons related to the process of generating planned maintenance work orders, see Icons of Planned Maintenance Work Orders.

To get an explanation of any icon, simply point at it with the mouse. After a moment, MainBoss will display a tooltip explaining what the icon means.

The table below lists MainBoss's most important icons.

Work Order Work order

The icons you see in MainBoss are often constructed by combining the icons above. For example, a demand for an item on a work order combines the demand icon with the item icon.

In addition, many icons may have a red X written over them if they refer to "hidden" records (e.g. records that have been deleted). For example, a reference to an employee record may have a red X on the Employee icon if the original employee record has been deleted. Icons may also be "struck-out" with a red line across them if the associated text comes from a hidden record that is not the "main" record associated with the icon; for example, an Employee icon may be struck-out if the associated text is the employee's name and if the Contact record that gives the employee's name has been hidden (deleted).
