Scheduling an escalation to run every weekday but not on weekends
Have you ever wanted an escalation to run every day but not on weekends?
Maximo 7.5 supports using a calendar-based schedule for escalations.
There are 2 fields (Calendar and Shift) that have been added to the
Escalation Point section in the application for this purpose. In the
Calendar Organization, the Calendar and Shift fields specify values to
limit when the escalation is run. The Calendar and Shift fields specify the days
and times for which the escalation is valid. If you set up a calendar to be only
Monday to Friday and then apply the calendar to the escalation then the escalation
will not apply to weekends.
