Vantage - Make button disabled at certain times of day

SC was the best money we have spent with Epicor!!!



Basically you can do anything in vantage with an automated process.



For example you have to enter about 1000 new parts. Instead of having some
one sit there and do that manual you stick all the data into an excel file
feed that to SC and let SC do all that work for you. Yah there are other
ways to do this but it's just an example.

That sounds technical - We have service connect but I have no idea what it
does!

Yah I'm not sure if that form reloads or not when some one clocks out
haven't really tested that out.

To be honest I wouldn't know where to start on that VB code I've only just
started working on my first custom that uses VB. But the concept seems
pretty simple I could whip it up on a VB app outside of vantage pretty quick
but inside vantage is a different story.

I could potentially see a service connect that would poll every so often and
clock out employess and then email a super.

Hi,

It all sounds very easy when you say it like that, but I have no idea where
to start.

If the users out off MES (but the screen remains open ready for the next
user to log in) will that refresh the screen or will it need totally closing
and opening?

Or do you know of anyway to automaticlly clock the user out after a certain
time and send an email to their supervisor to inform them that they havent
clocked out?

Thanks,

CHRIS

In my head VB code on the button would probably be the best bet. The kicker
will be making the form reload so that it checks the time to notice the
button needs to be disabled now.

Another option might be to have a customization with the button disabled.
Have a simple script that closes MES at a certain time and then reloads it
with the customization which would disable the button, and then another
script that closes MES and reloads it with out customization when you want
to enable the button.

Just thinking out lout here but couple different things I would try..

Subject: [Vantage] Vantage - Make button disabled at certain times of day

Hi,

Does anyone know how I can disable a button at certain times of the day?

We have an issue where our shop floor employees keep forgetting to Clock Out
of MES at the end of the day which caused problems.

Im wondering if there is a way where I can disable the LOG OFF button on MES
towards the end of the day, so their only option would be to CLOCK OFF/OUT.

As an alternative, could I add a popup at certain times of the day (towards
the end of the shift) where when the user tries to LOG OFF they are prompted
and asked if they meant CLOCK OFF then they can either say Yes (I meant
CLOCK OFF) or No (I just want to log off).

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

CHRIS
