    Change Activities in GroupsAnswered2

    Title:
    Change Activities in Groups
    Summary:
    Updating fields with mass change works stupidly
    Content:

    Hey, 

    We noticed a quite stupid way in the "Change Activities in Groups" feature (https://docs.oracle.com/en/cloud/saas/field-service/18d/facmu/working-with-activities.html#t_changeActivitiesInGroups).

    We have multiple fields in the Change Activities in Groups feature, but most of the time we only want to change one or two of them instead of all the fields. Now it clears the fields that have no information inserted in the "Change window", please see the attached image for more clarification.

    I made a quick fix for this by removing all the other fields but the one that is most used.

    I just want to ask, is this working as intended that it clears the fields, or is there a bug? Let me know how you guys use this feature.

    Custom Action Name is not visible in Book New Activity Screen layout
    Content:

    Hi,

    I have created an Action Name as shown in the attached screenshot and associated the Action Name as button into Book Activity Screen in the Version 18D. But after the instance upgrade to 19A, i was not able to see the custom button on Book Activity Screen and also i was not able to find the Actions Tab in Screen Layout to add it again. Please find the two screenshots (Action Screen & Book Activity Screen Layout) attached for your reference.

    Thanks,

    Anil

    Element "Image" doesn't open the camera
    Summary:
    Image Element doesn't allow the user to take a photo from camera application.
    Content:

    The user needs to take a picture at the end of an activity but the image element just allows to the user to choose an image from the photo roll which is not correct. I upload a capture from the configuration that I made according to the user's documentation. https://docs.oracle.com/en/cloud/saas/field-service/19a/faadu/configuring-oracle-field-service-cloud.html#t_create_a_file_property

    How can I get notifications on Facebook when I answer an...3100%
    Topic posted February 28, 2019 by Adriana Coronel, tagged Configuration 
    Title:
    How can I get notifications on Facebook when I answer an incident?
    Summary:
    I do not see notifications on Facebook when answering an incident
    Content:

    When I generate an incident from Facebook it is created correctly and I can see everything in the Agent's portal. At the time of answering, I can not see a notification on Facebook that tells me that I was answered, but I can see the answer if I am constantly monitoring the incident's history.

    Can this be done? What facebook notify me when my incident was updated / answered?

    I know that by email if a notification arrives, but my client needs this requirement.

    regards

    Following request is used to create formSubmitted event:

    {
        "subscriptionConfig":[
            {
                "events" : ["formSubmitted"],
     
                "formIdentifier" : [
                    "formLabel"
                ],
    "pushTo": 
    {
    "url": "https://oicsdev-badgerdaylighting.integration.ocp.oraclecloud.com/ic/api/integration/v1/flows/rest/RECEIVEOFSCEVENTREST/1.0/"
    }
            }
        ]
    }
     
    For update activity following is the payload:

    {
        "subscriptionConfig":[
            {
                "events" : ["activityUpdated"],

                "monitorChanges" : [
                    "Dispatcher_Comments"
                ],
                "fields" : [
                    "Dispatcher_Comments"
                ]
            }
        ]
    }

    But only activityCreated and activityCompleted events are being triggered. 

    On the ICS side we are using REST trigger and invoke connector.

    Thanks

    Hello,

    In the latest version 19A, OFSC introduced new section "Forms & Plugins" where we can create new forms/screens and manage plugins. But i was not able to find the Action Links. In previous version 18D we used to create Actions Links and associate Plugins to these links in Action Management Section. Screenshots of both the versions mentioned above are attached for your reference. Please help me.

    Thanks,

    Set modified field with current datetimeAnswered7

    Summary:
    Set modified field with current datetime
    Content:

    We are changing with internal messages some values of our Activities based on different events (activity started, suspended, passed the ETA, not done etc) and we would like to update each time the field modified to contain the date and time of the change. 

    We havent found the way to do exactly that. We have thought of using predefined fields such as start time but this only shows time and not the date.
