RE: Assignment vs. Responsibilities Fields

RE: Person Calendars -- how to use a generic calendar with a Holiday but add a work shift

One more, kind of related: We have an employee that splits time as a Carpenter and a Locksmith. For his Labor record, both Crafts are listed and Carpenter is the default. I have a work order with an Assignment needing a Locksmith. In Assignment Manager, I tried filtering the Labor table to...

RE: MX w/Scheduler 7.6.8 - Graphical Work Week - Work Query NOT Returning Expected Results
