    Make Quota configuration RO for an UT on Manage

    Make Quota configuration RO for an UT on Manage

    Hi Guys,

    Do you know any way to make Quota configuration RO for an UT (keeping Quota values editable in the same time) on Manage?
    Quota / View / Configuration in 18B and
    Quota / "Wrench icon" in 18C.

    IMO this need to be the part of the system configuration for a support guy and not an end user task.

    Collaboration Events in Core API Access (18A)


    I configured the Application for the integration. In the Core API available entities, I noticed we have Collaboration Events entity. 

    Can you tell me what's this entity for? I tried to find it on the docs, but no luck.

    Features of Capacity ModuleAnswered1

    Features of Capacity Module

    Hello Experts  , 

         Our Customer is considering the possibility of enabling the Capacity Module for OFSC . In this regards we  have following Questions:

    1. After enabling the Quota Management, We can adjust quota for the current date and future dates. While enabling the quota for the future dates due we need to have the licensing of  Forecasting Module ,
    2. Are all the fields that are needed to be taken in to consideration for Quota management are needed  to be added as Workskills . We am specifically referring to capacity of truck ie. Weight and Volume . 
    3. What would be outcome during routing if the resource reaches its capacity for a particular time slot . Would it be non routed activity or allocated to some other resource which is not having a specified capacity .

    Thanks & Regards,

    Prashant Singh Bhadauria

    How to check the capacity for any activity after 1 month
    Topic posted October 3, 2017 by Vivek KumarBronze Medal: 1,250+ Points, tagged Capacity / Quota 
    How to check the capacity for any activity after 1 month

    Dear Experts,

    I have observed that the max available value gets updated only for 1 months, even if we configure the calendar for the bucket or for the resource for a long period. If i want to check the quota after 1 month then the value of Max available is empty so quota comes as 0.

    Can we increase the time duration for Max available to get updated for 3-4 months in advance.

    Quota managemnt for new capacity category1
    Topic posted July 7, 2017 by Jenni GillRed Ribbon: 250+ Points, tagged Capacity / Quota 
    Quota managemnt for new capacity category


    I need to apply a new capacity category with a new work skill that limited resource will have, previously all resources were skilled to do all job types therefore we have only had one capacity category. How can I now configure the capacity bucket so that we can calculate the correct number of quota minutes for the resource in the bucket who are skilled for each capacity category and take into account unavailabilitys which we apply as an internal activity to the resource. Here are the two issues I am finding at the minute

    Quota by capacity category setting

    Setting 1) Quota is entered as % of maximum capacity available in this category

    Pros –   Calculates the correct quota minutes for the amount of capacity in the bucket that has that work skills. This is good as it means quota can be set without knowing what shifts the resources in the bucket work.

    Cons – Does not count other activities into capacity quota calculation which may lead to overbooking and means every time any person has an Internal activity applied it becomes very manual for the diary team who then need to adjust all capacity quotas.

    Setting 2) Quota is entered as % of quota defined on a parent level

    Pros -  Other activities are considered Quota % are calculated from max Available-Other activities

    Cons – Quota for that capacity category can be opened even if there is no resource open that is skilled on that day. I.e total quota minute 200 if you open capacity 'commercial' as 50% quota will open for 100 minutes even if no one is working that day who has that skill.


    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Stop booking activities once quota consumed is 100%1
    Topic posted September 12, 2016 by Sachin RathodBlue Ribbon: 750+ Points, tagged Capacity / Quota 
    Stop booking activities once quota consumed is 100%


    I have enabled %stop booking for a time-slot/Capacity Category combination. So once Quota used = Total quota for a time-slot/capacity category combination no activity should be created.

    1. When get_capacity is executed using Capacity Management API, it ensures no quota details are sent for that.

    2. But when I try to create activity using Inbound Interface API, it allows to create activity and due to which the used quota exceeds total quota defined for that time-slot/capacity category combination for that day.

    Is there any way I can stop booking at 100% through interface? I am using Inbound interface to create an activity.
