    Title:
    Adding emoticons in the mobility Screen
    Summary:
    Can we add clickable emoticons on mobility screen
    Content:

    One of our requirement is to add emoticons to take customer feedback. Once the work will be done, the technician will present a form in which all the work items will be mentioned and customer will tap on one of the emoji to give a quick rating about the job and then sign. Is there a way we can do this without going for plugin?

    Summary:
    Changing the duration of an activity
    Content:

    Hello,

    I have an activity whose default duration is 1hr. However, as a resource, I want to be able to manually change the duration to the number of hours I will require to perform the activity. I want to be able to manually change the start time and end time as well. 

    I tried changing the duration but without any success.

    Can this be achieved in OFSC?

    Thanks.

    Changing field value based on a selected value4

    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

    Combobox values visibility restricting current value
    Content:

    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.

We have configured fields in the Activity entity to display this customer approval form in the mobility. Currently one of the requirement is to convert that form into pdf and send a copy to the customer on his email. There is no documentation about this. Please need guidance how to achieve this requirement.

    We would like to restrict dispatchers from deleting canceled activities so disable the delete Activity option from the cancel activity form. This seems to be hardcoded though and we havent found this on the screen configuration. Could there be a way to configure this? We havent found something on the documentation about this.

    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.

    We would like to be able to see the records on a screen (inventories on mobility) with a condition applied: Only view the ones with a certain flag checked. We cant seem to find this from the documentation and we are wondering that this might not be supported. Would there be a way to implement this?
