    Have you thought about using an automation script?  The question is when do you need it to fire.

    What is the value in storing the same data multiple times? Defaults can make sense (setting a default insert site, setting a user's default storeroom, etc.) but storing a string of text over and over increases the size of the database without providing value. It'd be better to store this somewhere and display it via a relationship rather than duplicate it in the long description. 

    If defaulting is required, you could create a script called WORKORDER.NEW and that would default when a record is added immediately (so a user could change it if necessary before saving).

    To check if a PM is generating, you need to import MXServer (from psdi.server import MXServer) and add a check like

    if MXServer.getBulletinBoard().isPosted("PM.GeneratingWork")
