Templates are added to a maintenance schedule so the appropriate requests and tasks,
such as work orders and facilities requests, can be automatically generated when a
maintenance schedule runs.
A maintenance schedule runs and the requests or orders are generated, when a
scheduled job called Planned Maintenance Nightly Run
evaluates the schedule and determines that the meter or interval criteria in the
schedule is met or exceeded. You can run a scheduled job to execute a maintenance schedule that runs
at a day or time convenient for your business.

ID field is always populated with the table name and ID of
the record under maintenance.
