Are you planning to add the ability to create recurring / repeating assignments into a future release of Workforce? (without scripting/programming). We would like to see this as part of the core functionality. Thank you,
How would you expect this function to handle information in the workorderid field, etc? Interested in your thoughts or how do you cope with that at the moment?
I think this is a great idea - I currently have to use a combination of Excel, a bash script and Python script to schedule repeating assignments and would welcome a native Workforce solution. My application is grass-cutting, and I use a unique location code as the WorkOrderID, and the Cut number in the Description field. So a feature for repeating tasks could usefully allow automatic incrementation of a value in the Description field for me personally - but I guess for most (less exotic) applications, the ability to set a pattern for WorkOrderID, which incrementing of numeric portions would make sense - perhaps thus:
LonBrg2-2017-Visit01 - where the "2017" would auto-set to the scheduled year, and the "02" would increment from the last.
Hope this helps.
We do have recurring tasks like all PW departments such as replacing reagent bottles in our chlorine analyzers(once a montg). We presently use our calendars on our iphones to remind us. Obviously it would be helpful to have automatic generation of work orders to manage this type of task.
