The Unassigned orders pop-up will appear on the right. This list will default to display oldest work orders to newest work orders:

The Search feature can be used to manually search by FSM ID.

Next to the search button there is the Work order filters button. This filter will allow the user to customize the search results for Unassigned orders.

Work order type filter can be used to search for specific work order types.

The Create date from/Create date to fields can allow the search to only display work orders within the given time range.

The Sort by drop down will allow the user to sort by Creation Date or FSM ID. The Default setting will display Oldest work orders to newest. This can be switched to display Newest Work orders to oldest using the icon next to the Sort by dropdown:

If you right click on an order it will display two options: Open Calendar for task reschedule and Show work order details:

If you select Open Calendar for the task reschedule, then the specific work order will pull up in scheduling. The dispatcher can now manually schedule this work order.

If you select Show work order details, then a new tab will open showing the work order details page:
