    Set time using application screens

    Hello all! We are working with the new application screens for the dispatcher role.

    Has anyone found how users can edit route activation/deactivation times - activity start/end times etc? I am wondering if we have something misconfigured or if this is not possible when working with application screens.

    Making an Inventory property available in Activity screen3

    Making an Inventory property available in Activity screen
    Content:

    In End activity form, we need to configure a default validation based on an Inventory property. For example in the End activity form a text line will display "Price not added" if a specific inventory.property is empty.

    The problem is inventory properties are not available in the End activity form. And in my case I cannot use a message step to pass the inventory property value to an activity property because there is no event triggered when the user adds a price in the inventory field.

    Forcing 2 Decimal Places on a String Property in Mobility4100%

    Title:
    Forcing 2 Decimal Places on a String Property in Mobility
    Summary:
    A field called "subtotal_markup_parts" has a regex configured, but the values are not constrained once the field is calculated
    Content:

    Hello,

    The customer has a string property called "Subtotal w/ Markup" [label = subtotal_markup_parts] which has a regex configured:
    /^(?!.{8,})\d{1,6}(\.\d{1,2})?$/

    The regex is supposed to force the value of this property to be limited to 2 decimal places, however it seems that since this property displays the calculation of two other properties, the regex doesn't work. See the below 3 screenshots:
     


    subtotal_markup_parts is configured as so =  subtotal_markup_parts.png
    name: Subtotal w/ Markup
    label: subtotal_markup_parts
    regex: /^(?!.{8,})\d{1,6}(\.\d{1,2})?$/

    It is configured in the display to show the value of the product of these two fields =   subtotal_end_activity_screen.png
    Default Value: (activity.subtotal_parts * activity.markup_parts)

    And then in the instance, we can see that the regex doesn't apply and that the property incorrectly shows 6 decimal places =  subtotal_mobility.png
    >> the value displays as 168.936375  when it should be 168.94

    Why doesn't the regex apply to a property that displays calculations? 
    Also I know that this property could use language expressions but there doesn't seem to be a way to for the limit of 2 decimal plays for a number - are there any other ways this might be accomplished?

    Hello all,

    Is there any available Inventory Message Placeholder for individual quantity ?  (except inventory_quantity)
    I see that when multiple installation are executed on the same activity, quantity is being calculated each time.


    Thanks in advance.

    Using actions in Manage from Mobility for Dispatchers4

    Using actions in Manage from Mobility for Dispatchers
    Content:

    We are trying to switch to using Mobility instead of Legacy Manage for Dispatchers since this is what is advised from Oracle regardless of the user type. I have some questions about the Manage screen since compared to the standard Dispatch Console, Manage seems to lack some possibilities:

    We have added actions such as activate route from the Resource hint configuration (this is the only place which it seems that can be configured in Manage). But the only things that we can still do from the Resource hint is use the resource info and resource route buttons.

    https://docs.oracle.com/en/cloud/saas/field-service/19a/famcu/working-with-time-view-in-mobility.html#c_aboutResourceHints

    So these actions are available for using them from the configuration but does not actually display?

    Inventory Quantity functionality

    Inventory Quantity functionality
    Summary:
    when install message scenario is triggered twice for the same activity and same inventory item , quantity is being added
    Content:

    Hello OFSC experts, 

    I am facing an issue with field "quantity" . Any advice is welcome.

    For example: 

    1)Available items for a specific non-serialized inventory are 5. 

    2) Technician inserts 2. 

    3) Install message scenario is triggered with quantity 2

    4)At the same activity and same inventory, Technician installs another 1.

    5)Install message scenario is triggered with quantity 3 instead of 1.

    Actually, when install message scenario is triggered twice for the same activity and same inventory item , quantity is being added ( 2+1)

    Can you provide any solution for quantity value in order to work independently ?

    Regards, 
    Maria Marinou

    Search activity using activity id
    Content:

    We are setting up the activity search (from Business Rules) and we have noticed that it does not work with the activity id (aid). Otherwise the search is functional even with custom properties.I searched the documentation

    https://docs.oracle.com/en/cloud/saas/field-service/19a/faadu/configure-oracle-field-service-cloud.html#t_define_search_fields_for_core_manage

    https://docs.oracle.com/en/cloud/saas/field-service/19a/faaca/dispatcher-activities.html#t_searchforactivity

    and did not find any mention that it only works for certain fields or if it need some sort of extra configuration. Does anyone know how this works or can verify if that is not supported?

    Is there a way to delete inactive user sessions1

    Is there a way to delete inactive user sessions
    Content:

    We have a user which has performed several logins without having logout. Since then, each times the user tries to login again, a message is displayed that "maximum number of sessions exceeded" along with an option to "Delete the oldest user session and login". After checking that option it is possible to login.

    Apparently these sessions does not have a timeout, I understand that this comes from the setting of the default login policy we are using:

    I have tried to delete the browser cache in case this helps but this doesnt help and I understand that the sessions are kept in the server. I checked to see if there is an option to delete all sessions from the Users screen but didnt find anything. 

    Does anyone know how to handle this?
