Maximo Record Renaming Tool
For Maximo administrators who need to rename Locations, Assets, Companies and other records, the Ontracks MaxEdit Rename Tool is a built-in Maximo add-on that renames key records directly from inside Maximo, using the Maximo user interface. Unlike services or older rename tools, our product is built right into Maximo itself and allows renaming of almost all key records, not just Locations.
It’s a common and almost inevitable problem most Maximo installations face, especially as the system gets older and business units get added, organizations change or, in a lot of cases, mistakes get made when creating Locations, Assets, Companies, etc. in Maximo: you will want to change its name or ID.
At the time the Location name we selected made perfect sense. However, with the change in our Plant ownership we need to change the identifier without losing any history or other important information. MaxEdit gave me the flexibility to do this from within the Maximo application itself!”
With Ontracks MaxEdit, you can now rename Locations, Items, Assets, Job Plans, Companies (Vendors) and many others from inside Maximo.
MaxEdit Renames the following record types:
- Companies (Vendors)
- Job Plans
- Preventative Maintenance (PM)
- Purchase Requisitions (PR)
Access directly from inside Maximo through the Select Action menu. This is controlled with Maximo security.
