For the D365 Field Service and Schedule Board - could a capability be added that you can drag and schedule a resource by days? Today the solution will allow scheduling by hours, but we have a need for scheduling by days.

It is (now) possible to use drag and drop in the Daily View.

We have the same requirement. Our industry typically requires multi day engagements. On average, a typical field service job is 10+ days. Many of our jobs require multiple resources rotating in and out throughout the duration of the job. This can become a huge exercise when managing thousands of resources on hundreds of active jobs, especially when the customer consistently request changes to planned start dates that can have a ripple effects on the entire schedule board. Managing these changes in the hourly view is not practical.

Agreed. Having such fundamentally different behaviour just by changing a view is not being well received. Clients see anything other than the Hour View as "broken"

We also have the requirement to book in days.

We are having this same issue as well. Would be nice to schedule by day, with a default hour of 8 or whatever is called out in the Resource requirements. Drag and drop Resource Requirements via Day view.

Scheduling multiple days as whole needs to be improved a lot. Field service is really focused around hourly, not daily.
