Thank you for your feedback. We are not considering the suggestion at this time due to the fact that you can create today a workflow that gets triggered on status change of the bookings. In addition we also allow you to integrate with providers like Glympse, that can provide excellent insights to keep the customer up to date on the technicians ETA. Hope this helps.


Sincerely,

Shloma Baum

Schedule board map customization

On the Schedule board's map view I can see the location of the resources, requirements, bookings. I would like to make visible a custom entity on the Schedule board map. This should be always visible without connecting a requirement to it.

Field Service Upgrade

We are receiving many upgrades recently for FS. Is it mandatory to upgrade every FS upgrade by testing and upgrading from test environment? Will it affect the customization of the system for every upgrade? And we receive very occasionally email notification to upgrade?

Thanks for reaching out, Dineshkumar. While this doesn't seem like an idea, this does sound like you have some important questions that need to be answered about some of our upgrade policies.

In general, the Field Service solution now upgrades automatically on a roughly monthly basis. The detailed schedule for the upgrade and notes on each release can be found here: https://docs.microsoft.com/dynamics365/field-service/version-history

Environments on FS v8.8.6 or higher are eligible for these automatic updates. We are in the process of pushing all customers on a version below this to get upgraded, immediately. For customers that do not upgrade, between now and the end of November, we are conducting Microsoft automatic upgrades. For this one-time larger upgrade, there is a much higher likelihood for customer disruption if they do not conduct this upgrade on their own.

There is a little bit more information about our upgrade messaging here: https://docs.microsoft.com/dynamics365/field-service/troubleshoot-faq#why-did-i-receive-an-email-or-message-center-notification-about-a-field-service-update

Finally, if you still have questions, I'd encourage you to closely read these messages as they should have all the information I've shared above and much more. If you still have questions, please raise a support request and we'd be happy to help you and your organization navigate this process.

The main thing to know are:

- If you are on a Field Service version below 8.8.6, you should plan to get upgraded, immediately.
- If you are on a Field Service version 8.8.6 and above, unless you are in one of our special regions (like the Government Community Cloud), you are already being automatically upgraded.
  - Special regions will also begin being automatically upgraded but the timeline for this effort is slightly behind our standard commercial regions.

Thank you,

Thank you for your feedback.

Unfortunately, at this time, we are not considering this suggestion.

We currently allow Work Order creation from Opportunities. Further, we allow significant Field Service sales functionality to drive FS sales scenarios. Unfortunately, we see this functionality is under-utilized and don't think it makes sense to invest in these use-cases further for the forseeable future.

It is possible that we will revisit these areas, eventually.

We do think this is a valid scenario and we encourage you to enable this with custom logic to support your and your customers' scenarios.

Thank you,

Thank you for your feedback.

Since it is possible to apply an SLA to Work Orders and display whether that SLA is active, succeeded or failed, we assume you want something slightly different. We'd love to better understand the need. Can you please share more details about this concept including a possible example scenario that highlights the ask?

Thank you,
