In the case that you have several work orders that are similar, you can utilize the Work Order Linking functionality to help your team see the full story of the work order.
This will help increase transparency across your team. Understanding the related issues will also assist in solving more complicated work orders.
NOTE: This is for reference as this function does not include any actual changes or actions to either work order that is linked.
The Criteria for Linking
