Adding a repairer on the fly can be completed from various screens, from this example we will be completing it from the Repair screen. Click Repairs (1) on the left hand side of the screen:

Gearbox - Repairers - Step 6

Click the green New Repair button (1):

Gearbox - Repairers - Step 7

In this example we will not be filling out an entire Repair sheet. Under the Repairer header, start typing in the Repairer name (1), if the repairer does not currently exist the system will add “(new)” next to the name you type in, make sure to click on the item in the drop down otherwise when your selection changes it will be removed:

Gearbox - Repairers - Step 8

Once you have saved the repair, the system will also add the Repairer to the Repairer register to be available for future use. This can be completed from many screens, including Tyres, Services etc.
