    Title:
    Work Zones for Different Countries
    Summary:
    How to Map work zones to Countries
    Content:

    Our client is operating in two different countires (Canada / US). We have work zones for both the countries with zipcodes as key. Please can some expert explain how OFSC resolves these zipcodes for Canada and US as i did not tag the workzones with the country.

    Also, i can add multiple timezone in Display screen. How these timezone will be used for each work zone?

      Hi Adam,

      If both country has the same zip code structure then you will have an issue, because one code can be a part only one specific WZ. But if you don't have this issue, then the solution will be easy: Canada -> C_A1_W1 (Canada, Area 1, Work Zone 1) and US -> U_A1_W1 (US, Area 1, Work Zone 1) and so on.

      IMO Time Zone isn't related to WZ, but for country/region, each user can select they TZ from "My display" (after configured) and he/she will see the correct situation related to the time of the monitored area. I mean if I login our environment from US and not able to choose American TZ then unable to manage our technicians because the system will not show me good information (-6 hours difference).

      Regards,
