I would like to set a conditional auto format for work orders that exceeds deadline. I remember in 4.5 it was done through auto format with the attribute "todeadline is less than 0". Now I'm trying to use the same method in 5.0 but it's giving me an error saying "condition attribute is calculated".
Unfortunately this seems to be one of the facilities which has "dropped out of" release 5 during the GUI re-write. But when you consider how badly 4.5 performed if TO_DEADLINE was in view and you retrieved more than a few records, then perhaps it is just as well!
If you seriously need this back you will need a Scheduled DB RULE which tests whether the WO is "closed" (whatever state(s) you use for that) when the DEADLINE is hit and if it's NOT CLOSED then set a custom number field ESCALATED. Then your VIEW can format on the custom field.
