    Content:

    Hi All,

    When activities are assigned from OFSC manage is it possible for the technician work on the activities as per he wishes? Like working on the last activity to him at first.

    Thanks,

    Madhu

      IMO, you can achieve that by creating all the activities as non- ordered activities. Tech can choose to work which ever activity he chooses

      Hi Shankar,

      I have tried adding activities which has non-ordered and ordered activities. But I m able to start the activity which has come first.

      Thanks,

      You will have to adjust the User Type by checking option "Allow activity reorder inside the route".  This will permit changing the order of activities by the tech.  The system will still require that the activities are executed in the defined order.  So the last activity will have to become first or the next one in order for it to be started.

      Hi Martin,

      I have already checked the User type Activity Management "Allow activity reorder inside the route". And I find the last activity does not have a start option.

      Thanks,

      It doesn't because you need to change its order.  Bring or move the last activity as the next one in the timeline and then the start will be available.

      Hi Madhu,

      Please check your ActivityType- > There is a field "Support of Not Ordered Activities". You need to check that box.

      Then place the activities in the not ordered queue. Refer Screen shot.

      It works for me. I donot need to move activity any where like top or bottom. Just drag and drop in that Not Ordered Queue I can even start any activity like the 3rd or 4th or last.
