    [Under Consideration] Multi-day activity notification requirement
    User Story / Description:

    Our current customer has a multi-day activity notification requirement that currently can’t be met with native product behavior:

    • If a non-scheduled multi-day activity is assigned to a tech, or multiple multi-day activity segments are moved from one tech to another, or cancelled, OFSC generates an “add”, “move” or “cancel" message scenario for each activity segment.
    • The above behavior is consistent with what OFSC typically does, and:
      • in some cases useful, as OFSC needs to inform an external system about creation/assignment/cancellation of each segment
      • in some cases not useful/redundant: when message scenarios are used to notify tech of job assignment/job re-assignment/job cancellation, the tech will end up getting multiple messages, one per segment, when one would have been enough. The multiple messages flood the e-mail inbox/text messages and may cause techs to start ignoring/redirection the notifications.

    As there is no blocking condition to prevent multiple notifications for multi-day segments, Customer would like to request this feature as product enhancement. 

    The new feature should be an option to a) allow all segments’ notifications to be sent, or b) send out 1 notification per add/move/cancel of multiple segments per resource.
