The color of the cluster will change depending on the due status of any Work Orders that it includes:

  • Red - Contains overdue Work Orders
  • Orange - Contains Work Orders inside the start and end dates
  • Green - Contains Work Order not yet within the start date
  • Blue - Contains no Work Orders only technical objects
