Can I do a manual call on just ONE maintenance item # on a multi-item maintenance plan?

Need to know if its possible in SAP Plant Maintenance to do a manual call on just ONE maintenance item # on a multi-item maintenance plan. For example, I have a maintenance plan # 1001 that has 99 task list items on it, varying in intervals from daily to annually, and one of those task lists maint items is # 567, I want to manually call just that 567 item to generate a work order tomorrow. I know if I were to create a maintenance plan for every task list, this would not be a problem, but my maintenance plans have many task lists on them and I cannot figure out how to manually call just ONE of them and not any others on that maintenance plan.
thx experts

Hi bobrossi,

I reached out to the SAP community and one of their members answered here: https://answers.sap.com/answers/544279/view.html
Manual call in IP10 does not ask for item but only the package(s) you want to call. If an item has that package, then it generates the object.

Instead of manual scheduling, why don't you create order manually for that equipment, and assign task list to that order? After you assign the task list you can remove the irrelevant operations if you do not want the whole package.

Does this help you to resolve the problem?

I do not know HOW to assign an existing task list to a new work order. I do an IW31 to create the order but don't see how I assign the existing task list.

Another SAP user told me this.

Hi,

Follow the below path to assign the Task list for existing work order

Order menu -> Extras -> Task List Selection and assign the required task list...

YES, this worked perfectly. Does not "really" solve my initial issue of being able to schedule just one task list on a maint plan that has multiple task lists, but it's an acceptable work around.

If generating from the plan is key for historical purposes the workaround I have used in the past: Add a secondary set of packages to the task list assigned to the item for manual call, then call that package set. After the order is created, remove the second package set to revert the task list to is normal setup. Note: this will not work if the same task list is used in multiple items in the plan to be called manually.
