- Many factories want to capture the status of work from the shop floor, WIP - Work In Progress. This is especially important if a job gets blocked and requires assistance. In MaxScheduler you can setup a type of Attribute called 'Drop down list' and then set a color for specific values. On the Schedule screen these will appear as colored blocks next to text. For example some companies use a red block to indicate a problem with a job. These colored blocks appear on the Schedule screen and in the ListView.
