There are two kinds of completion date: start in cycle completion date and call completion date. App "Schedule Maintenance Plan" only display call completion date.

  • Start in cycle completion date: completion date of the previous call/start date for the new call. It is called completion date because when start in cycle the regular maintenance is already in place. you created the plan somewhere in the middle of the cycle, you need to enter the last maintenance date. From PM technical point of view, it is the start date for the next call.
  • Call Completion Date: the call was completed (i.e. an order is technically completed). 


It is standard behavior
