The app will then send the parts request to FleetWave and notify you that this has been completed successfully. You can review their status by pressing the 'Part Requests' menu icon. If you have the correct account permissions, and if your part was in stock, it will have been added to the job. If the part isn't in stock, the system will create the record to notify your Parts Administrator to get them ordered for you.
