I have several questions about the Date/Time Event trigger for task as I haven’t found the answer in the doc:
- What are the acceptable date format for the “choose start date” field (Does a business data string fits? yyyy/MM/dd seems to not work)?
- Does the support of business calandar works ? (Ex : In my business calander defined in MWS GUI I choose all days without saturday and sunday. Will it works for calculating delay ?)
- Does the working hours of business day affects the calulate date as I don’t use date/time but date?
Find enclosed a picture of my current set up.
Thanks for the information.
Sorry to be using an old post like this but how do I get an object of type java.util.Date from a service. Right now I’m using the Creation Date as the start date and calculate the number of days until it has to fire (Days After Start Date). Problem here is, when I have a Date/Time event that shouldn’t fire until tomorrow, and I add a new Task where the event should fire today both of them are triggered.
I hope I’m being clear, if not please don’t hesitate to ask.
Just a clarifying question.
Are you creating multiple events on the same tasks, with the same base date (Task Creation Date), but different numbers of days/hours/minutes after the base date? And so you’re expecting the events to fire at different times, but whichever is set earlier triggers both?
Thanks for replying. I have one event on the task that starts on the creation date + variable amount of days calculated by previous service.
If today I queue a task with 3 as the amount of days until it has to start, and after that I queue a task with 0 as the amount of days until the start both of them will get completed. If I don’t queue the second one the first task will wait 3 days until it completes itself.
Hope I’m being clear?
