This is about 'on y va'

I have a lot of trouble with french because i directly translate the English. So i wanted to know if "on y va" can also be used for something like, "let's do it" or "let's get started". Or is it just for "let's go somewhere" like a place?

The adverbial pronoun 'y' can be used to replace 'place' and other previously mentioned 'à + something' as per this lesson Y can replace à + [thing/object/location] (French Adverbial Pronouns)  However the verb needs to change - you can not use [aller] when you mean [commencer], [faire], [terminer] etc etc,
