Negative Line items on Purchase Orders and Sales Orders

Purchase Order integration - does this allow for negative purchase orders? In FO they use negative PO lines or a PO with a specific type to allow for parts to be returned. Currently there is logic with Field Service that prevents us from accepting those negative lines. CDS but Dual Write cannot...

Retrieve required work order skills from entities other than incident type (e.g. asset, product, customer)

Thank you for your feedback. We really like this idea. We are doing work in some related areas and may take the opportunity to look at some of this, depending on complexity.

At the moment, by itself, this is not currently in our roadmap; however, we are tracking it and if we get more feedback and votes, we may consider it in the future.

Thanks, Boris.

Thank you for your feedback. We like the idea of creating a control to allow users to draw territory boundaries. This is something we looked into in the past.

Currently this is not in our roadmap; however, we are tracking it and if we get more feedback and votes, we may consider it in the future.

Thanks for sharing. Keep the ideas coming.

Thank you for your feedback.

We are not considering the suggestion at this time:

  • We don't believe this is a common ask.
  • The concept of Asset history may make sense but the idea that we would preserve the asset state against each work order/work order incident at the time of creation is not something we're currently considering. We're concerned that this would lead to unnecessary data duplication, mobile sync complications, and potentially undermines the value of the relational database upon which the system is built. 
  • If the asset is replaced with another product, is it the same asset or was one asset retired and replaced? We think different organizations may answer this question differently. If we can offer functionality that will serve the majority case, it may make sense to revisit.

Thank you for sharing your idea. While we don't think we will move forward with this one, we hope you aren't discouraged from raising ideas in the future.

Sincerely,

PM, Jason Cohen
