  2. Under Manage Identification Codes and Work Codes, click Create New.
  3. In the Work Code box, type a name for the work code.
  4. From the Type drop-down menu, select the work code type.
    Note: You cannot change the work code type after it is created.
  5. In the Description box, type a short description of the work code.
  6. Click in the Cost Center box, and then select the cost centers to which you want to assign the work code.
  7. From the State drop-down menu, select whether the code is enabled or not.
  8. Click Save.
    Note: To edit a code, search for the code, and then click the Edit link next to it.

To filter identification and work codes:

  1. Click the Apply Filters button next to the search field to add the filtering criteria.
  2. In the dialog box that displays, select your filtering criteria from the drop-down menu.
  3. To further refine the filter, click the plus sign next to the drop-down menu to activate another field where you can add specific search strings to include in the filter.
