How to Find Work Orders on the Dashboards

Note: When you first log into Hippo, you arrive at the Enterprise screen. What the main display area of your Enterprise screen looks like depends on the Dashboard View. There are three possible Dashboards Views in Hippo: Advanced, Standard, and Calendar. Check for the white dashboard icon in the top right to determine which view you are currently using or have access to.

From the Enterprise screen, no matter which dashboard you are using, click on the Facility Overview box on the right to get to that specific facility's Work Orders.
