  • Only active Work Orders can be extended. 
  • If a work order has become inactive, it can not be extended via the UI or Import. 


Extend an Active Work Order:

Please see the following section of the handbook for more information.

Extend an Inactive Work Order:

As no operation on inactive work orders can be made, a work order that has become inactive can not be extended. 
We recommend rehiring the contingent worker to a new work order. 
For steps to do this, please follow instructions in the following section of the handbook: Rehiring a Contingent Worker on a New Work Order
