How do I create a maintenance reminder based on days only?

You can use the VHM Wizard found in the presets menu. This Wizard quickly steps you through creating a VHM and maintenance item. There are also many pre-defined VHM/Maintenance setups already defined.

Follow the following steps to manually create a maintenance reminder:

–  Go to the “Maint/Service” tab.
–  Right click on the grid and select “Create New Maintenance Item”.
–  Type the name of the item you want to track into the description field.
–  Make sure the “entered date” is set to today.
–  Set the due date to the day the maintenance is due.
–  Set “then every” to the interval that you want to repeat the item.
–  Optionally check “display on dashboard”.
–  Click the Save button.
