Changing cost centre allocations for tasks and works

How to change the cost centre that a particular task or works item is linked to.

Introduction

All tasks that are listed in the maintenance tab and all works items on works orders are linked to a cost centre.

Cost centres for works are set at the line item level to allow different line items on a single works order to be linked to different cost centres if necessary.

When you change the cost centre for a task it affects which cost centre the task costs are set against - any future works items that are created will also be linked to the new cost centre. Any existing works items that have already been issued will not be affected.
