    Unfinished activities look finished by estimated end time4

    Unfinished activities look finished by estimated end time
    Content:

    I have noticed that when an activity starts close to the end of a shift and the technician does not marks it as done and does not deactivates the route then the activity looks as if is finished at the estimated time of end (this could be before or after the end of the shift) but remains with status started.

    Of course the direction is for the technicians to close their activities and deactivate their route. But in case that happens, I would have thought that at least it would look as if it was delayed at to the end of the shift.

    Can someone confirm if this is standard behavior?

    Set modified field with current datetimeAnswered7

    Set modified field with current datetime

    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.
