    2. In Setting adding the Delivery Channel as Set Property.

    Geo Location for Bucket resource type5

    Title:
    Geo Location for Bucket resource type
    Content:

    Hi Gurus,

    Can anyone give a solution for the below scenario.

    Hierachy of the project is like

    Manager

       -> Supervisor

             ->List of technicians

    The Requirement is supervisor will travel in the field to look into technicians work. And also route the activity which the manager assigns to him.

    But while creating a resource type only the bucket has feature to route the activity. So to track the geo location of a supervisor I have to create a field resource later what provision I given in user type routing cannot be done.

    Thanks,

    Madhu

    Supporting Activity tasks4

    Title:
    Supporting Activity tasks
    Summary:
    Visibility and edit option of sub-tasks in activity (dispatcher and technician)
    Content:

    We are integrating with Siebel from where we are getting tickets (OFSC Activities = Siebel SR). These tickets in Siebel also contain tasks (Siebel Activities) which describe what has already been done and what other tasks should the technician perform. These are not always mandatory, the technician might leave some unfinished. The technician should also be give feedback with an update of the status for each one of these tasks and perhaps enter some comments.

    We have considered to use linked activities for this but we it wouldnt be very practical. The task list can be very long up to some hundreds so apart from the work needed to perform would also be very bad in term of visibility for the dispatcher. The technician would have to start and complete (or at least mark as done) every single sub-activity which would represent a sub-task of a main activity. This also could only be done before starting the main activity or after completing it, since we cannot mark done an activity while a different one is still in progress. And this raises a lot of problems apart from the SLA tracking.

    What we are currently trying to achieve is to use the SR OFSC entity for this purpose. So we would like -first of all- the technician to view and edit the tasks list inside the activity. Ideally we would like for the dispatcher to be able to view (and perhaps edit under conditions) these subtasks also inside the activity. 

    We have managed to show an SR list for the technician inside the activity from mobility using grid_request but everything is read-only. So no option for input of status and comments.

    For the dispatcher there is ony the Resource Inventory List available, not for the Activity. We have tried to create a custom action from action management to include the grid_request to the management interface but this seems that is only supported for mobility and indeed I cannot see this action button from inside the activity.

    Does anyone have an other ideas on how to achieve this requirement? I guess that there has to be other implementation where sub-tasks had to be configured.

    Hi OFSC gurus,

    I was wondering if any of you could provide me with some assistance/familiarity with the Web Application Security? I currently working on implementing the integration between OFSC and external systems involving more than one external systems. One of the questions from their Security guy is whether OFSC has the ability of Runtime Application Self-Protection (RASP) in place?

    Thanks, guys.

    Not able to send Data from Plugin Iframe to Field Service Cloud Screen Name (cname) Field
    Content:

    Hi,

    We have a requirement to make the Name Filed searchable in Book Activity Screen (Mobility), so that Technician can search customer name instead of Typing. To achieve this functionality, we built a Plugin which opens an iframe. After selecting the value in iframe, it should stamp the selected value in the Name (cname) Field of Book Activity Screen.

    But after selecting the value and submitting. the value is not getting stamped in the Name Field of Book Activity Screen and also not navigating back to the Book Activity Screen. Please help. The files created for Plugin development are attached.

    Thanks,

    Anil

    Changing field value based on a selected value4

    Title:
    Changing field value based on a selected value
    Summary:
    The Value of the Custom Property should change based on the status of the Activity
    Content:

    Hello Experts,

    We are currently working on a usecase which pertains to the changing the value of the custom property based on the status of the Activity.

    For Example:

    We have a custom property called Field_Records that holds enumeration value: Task created/Assigned, Task in progress and Assigned task not completed.

    If the status of the activity is Pending: Field_Record should display "Task created/Assigned"

    If the status of the activity is Started: Field_Record should display "Task in Progress"

    If the status of the activity is Not Done: Field_Record should display "task not completed"

    Do let us know if there is a possible way of achieving that. A workaround to the above scenario would also be helpful.

    Thanks & Regards,

    Prashant Singh Bhadauria

    We have a combobox field that takes a series of values. Lets say at a certain point it has a value V1. We want make mandatory on a form for users to update this field choosing one of the values V2 and V3. So we edited the value visibility of the field to only include V2 and V3. But when we open the form we can see the current value as well as V2 and V3 and users are able to submit the form having selected V1.
