Once Job Orders are created, by default they are assigned to all operators in the SFactrix application. But if you want to assign specific job to specific machine operators, you have to assign it through SFactrix application. Operators can see the list of job assigned to them only they are allocated through SFactrix app.

Pre-condition - Plant, Work Center, Assets, Parts, Customers, Work Orders, Job and the user with 'User Type as 'Factory User' and 'User Role' as 'Job Operator' should be created in SFactrix before assigning a job to Job Operator. You should be an Admin user (Account Admin, Plant Admin, Work Center Admin, Asset Admin) to assign the job.
