Schedule Execution date and time field for a Request?

Hi,

 

We have many deployment workflows that we use.   When it comes to the Deploy to PROD step, we double click the Eligible button and select Schedule Execution drop down and enter a date and time.  

Is there anyway to do the exact same to schedule a request step to execute at a specific date & time?    See attachment pic

 

 

In the HP Deployment Management Users Guide p.116   -->  "If you select Schedule Execution, the Execution Date and Execution Time fields are visible. Select a date and time, and then click OK."

You can use time out functionality and use custom token. In custom token use you business rule to populate the value.

Re: Schedule Execution date and time field for a Request?

Ok.   We have been doing that but its not as nice as being able to use the out of box schedule execution date and time button.    I wonder if I could use a date token instead of a numeric text field?    I might try that.   It would be nice to see a date & time for the timeout somewhere..vs setting a token to 1500 min etc.   

 

Thanks for the feedback

Set up the workflow step as a manual execution step. You will get buttons on the request that will look familiar and will give you this functionality. I have attached an example.
