Recurrent activity - Days between occurrences
Answer ID 11668   |   Last Review Date 07/22/2020

How does the parameter 'Days between occurrences' work?

Environment:

Oracle Field Service (OFS)

Issue:

I have created a repeating internal activity of type Warehouse and selected Days between occurrences = 3 starting today Monday July 6th.

Resource Terri works from Monday - Friday.

The internal activity was created for the days marked with shaded cells. In some cases there are 5 days in between the activities. I was expecting that if Thursday is day 1 and Friday is day 2, Monday would be day 3.

SUN MON TUE WED THU FRI SAT



1 2 3      4
5 6 8 9 10 11
12 13 14 15 16 17 18
19 20 21   22 23 24   25
26 27 28 29 30 31


Resolution:

When you fill the Days between occurrences parameter while creating a recurrent activity, all the calendar days are taken into account but if the recurrence falls in a non-working day then no activity is created on that day. The day is still counted as the day 3.

In this example, since the resource is not working Saturdays and Sundays, no activities need to be created for the 12th and 18th.
