Launch Entry Name Field In Work Order

Body

You may have encountered the Launch Entry Name Field In Work Order Tracking application and wondered what is it there for. Here's a simple explanation:

In out-of-the-box Maximo , the Work Order Tracking application's Work Order tab, includes a editable field entitled Launch Entry Name. You can select a value for the field from the Launch in Context
application.

The Launch In Context was initally implemented as part of the interfaceto Service Desk. This would enable a user to launch from a WO that was created from a Service Desk ticket (e.g. Incident, Problem, Release,
etc) to the ticket in the Service Desk itself.
There is no ootb functionality in Maximo.To configure Launch in Context please refer to the Knowledge Centertopic below:
