How do I view and print work order invoice/charges?

Use Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox to enter the AiM website.

You will be prompted to enter your current UTD login and password.

Once AiM has fully loaded, click on “WORK MANAGEMENT” at the top of the Menu box; then select “WORK ORDER”.

In the lower right-hand corner of the WORK ORDER screen, a box is provided to enter your 8-digit work order number inserting a hyphen prior to the last two digits (Example: 146300-16).

Click on the magnifying glass next to the box to access the work order. After your Work Order has populated, select “Cost Analysis” from the “View” section provided down the left side of the screen, for charges currently posted to the entire Work Order. For charges posted to a specific phase number, click on that phase number (Example: 001, 002, 003, etc.) and then select “Cost Analysis” from the “View” section provided down the left side of the screen.

Billed Work Order phases will indicate “95- Billed/Closed”. If a Work Order phase is not in “95-Billed/Closed” status, then charges may not be complete for that phase. Similarly, if a Work Order is not in “Closed” status then charges may not be complete for the entire Work Order.

To print “Cost Analysis” amounts visible from the Work Order screen: Maximize your web browser, click the Print Screen key at the top right-hand side of your keyboard, open a Word document, right-click on your mouse over the blank page and select Paste.
