    [Delivered] Calendar Extract for Oracle Field Service
    User Story / Description:

    As a work force planner, I need to be able to extract the complete field force calendar information so that i can easily complete an audit of the calendar information against roster records using our intern BI tool.

    Originaly this was suggested to be a part of the History API but this is not supported as per the SDK document.

      The Resource Management API ‘get_resource_calendar’ method allows you to extract calendars assigned to a resource. If this will not meet your needs, please provide additional information to help us better understand your request. It would be helpful to have the following answered:

      Hi Werner, 

      I have a follow up question about the idea.

      When you saying "complete field force calendar information", do you mean information like shift name, working hours start/end, lunch duration and time slot, or you are mean something like ability to export complete routes, including all the activities in a .ics or a similar format, that provides ability to import entire technician(s) day into a calendar application?

      Thanks for you responses to this question.  After being provided the Resource Management API documentation it would seem that Johns advice fits our needs perfectly.  We will be expanding on our current use of this API to provide the information required.
