Hi Jason, Similar to the method you mentioned: Do you know if there would be a reason why WHERE ROWNUM = 1 (or SQL Server equivalent) wouldn't work? I did some limited testing, and it seemed to work ok (only sent 1 email). But I'm pretty green when it comes to escalations, so there might be a reason ...

Anywhere Work Technician 7.6.4; Android: Question: What is the Notifications window used for in Anywhere? I remember testing "Push Notifications" about a year ago. But I don't think those Push Notifications when to this screen. Is it used for something else? Thanks.

Would you mind clarifying: What report are you referring to in this blurb? "...​if you have set up the PMWOGenCron to send you the report when it runs..." Thanks. PMs are new to me.

MAM 7.6.1.2: In the Assignment Manager application, I can manually assign a crew to a WO: Instead of manually assigning crews to WOs, I want to automatically assign a crew to certain WOs, based on the WO classification. For example, if the WO classification is ROADS \ ASPHALT \ ASPHALT- LARGE CREW ...

For what it's worth, I'm just trying to explore my theoretical options in a non-Prod environment. I want to learn what can be done in POCs. Not what should be done. That's a different story. For this particular scenario, I may very well go with a different option -- a custom classification ACTIVE? field ...

MAM 7.6.1.2: I want to create a custom button and autoscript that will delete USE WITH classifications records -- even if the classification is used by existing WOs. Maximo prevents that when I try to delete the record using the OOB delete button. Question: Is there a way in automation scripts to ignore ...

FYI I had a similar problem where users couldn't save their WOs after using the Spatial/desktop map, due to what we called a "re-fetch" issue. BMXAA8229W: Record WORKORDER : Site=SERVICES Work Order=WO21964 has been updated by another user. Your changes have not been saved. Refresh the record and try ...

Thanks! Now that I think about it, I'm actually not sure if Maximo formulas can return text (like a username or personid) to text columns at all. Maybe they can only return numbers to number columns. I know newer releases of Maximo (7606+) support text inside formulas. But, can they return text values ...

MAM 7.6.1.2: Questions: 1. What is the purpose of the EXPFUNCTIONS table? 2. What part of Maximo uses those functions? 3. Can I use those functions in Maximo formulas? 4. What does the USERDEFINED column represent? Some of the values are 1, but it's not like I created any custom user-defined functions. ...

Thanks. I had wondered about doing that. I created a test classification and added a USE WITH for WORKORDER. Then I used the classification in a WO. However, when I try to delete the USE WITH from that classification, I get an error. I get the error, even if the WO is closed. BMXAA0201E - This classification ...

Thanks @Shannon Rotz and @Biplab Choudhury . That's a very interesting take. The reason we're considering creating a custom PRECLOSE or WCLOSE status (COMP synonym) is: Our users want a way to explicitly indicate that a WO is ready to be closed. We want it to be obvious to anyone who's looking at ...

MAM 7.6.1.2: I'm trying to learn how to populate persistent fields without using automation scripts. Reason: We already have hundreds of automation scripts. I'm reluctant to create more scripts just to populate simple fields. Examples: 1. I can populate CREATEDDATE and CREATEDBY fields by using default ...

MAM 7.6.1.2: I've been trying to learn about external contractors who function as labors in Maximo. It looks like we have the concept of inside/outside labors: When I look at the View Costs window in WOTRACK, I see that the outside labor that I entered has been included in the external labor section. ...

For example, what if I configured the Anywhere XML so that the fields are editable? (including a condition that only allows edits if the actuals are unapproved) Is Anywhere designed to work like that -- to edit existing actuals? Or is it only designed to create & view actuals?

I've been doing some testing regarding classifications, descriptions, etc. Question: @Craig Kokay said: "This allows you to customize the description that appears in the drilldown vs the classification list (these point to different descriptions)." As far as I can tell, the only place that the CLASS ...

1. It sounds like this method will be faster than using a subselect. So that's interesting. Special bind variables you can use :&synonymlist&_ "This keyword is in lowercase. This resolves to a list of synonym values that can be directly used in a SQL. Following the &synonymlist&_ keyword, ...
