Days Offset:  Minutes Offset:
When the Work Order is generated, the Days and Minutes Offset will be used to calculate the End Date and End Time on the Work Order’s Milestone line based on the Date / Time Must Complete.  

For example, if the Work Order was generated with a Date Must Complete of April 15, 2017 a Days Offset of 10 would generate Milestone End Date of April 25, 2017.  Negative Offsets may also be specified.  In the above example, a Days Offset of -10 would generate an End Date of April 5, 2017.

Fixed Date:  Fixed Time:
Milestone Dates and Times are set during initial WO creation regardless of whether these fields are flagged.  These fields come into play in the Work Order viewer when Date/Time Must Complete is changed.  Basically, Fixed means  do NOT change the Milestone’s End Date / Time after the initial Work Order creation.
