Deadline Format

I'm using SD 4.5.

What do I have to do to change the format of "Status" when Deadline is on or past the due date. For example, if a service call has passed the deadline, I want the Status of that call to change to red on the Service call list. I'm assuming it's a database rule but i couldn't figure it out.

Any help?

Re: Deadline Format

Hi,

It's a view Rule, not a DB Rule. Right click on the header bar and click on Customize Current view. Then click on Auto Format. There you can specify the rule that will effect your views for the kind of requirement you have.

Hope that helps...

Re: Deadline Format

Hi there,

You can alter the font and its colour when the deadline passes: configure the view using the Autoformat button and add a condition that says:

To Deadline is less than zero and have the font as colour red.

Also add "To Deadline" as field on the view using the field button.

Then when the view refreshes, the line will be highlighted in red.

Hope this helps

Re: Deadline Format

The operator for the Deadline field does not contain "less than". I only see (on, on or after, on or before, is between).

Re: Deadline Format

Hi,

Don't use Deadline. Use "To Deadline" as suggested by Ruth.
