Activity on item creation

Postby GPS on Tue Feb 02, 2010 9:15 pm

I'm not sure if I am looking in the right spot for this but,
when a new Ticket or Asset etc. is created from a template there is always an Acitivty created with %[Action Name]% was executed.
I think I can see in Business logic where this is coming from (under Programming Tab for Interactive Create Action) - but I can't turn it off. The tick box will re-tick itself when its saved.

Is this where the Activity is being added?

Cheers.

Yes, that's the spot and I've never seen it where you couldn't uncheck it.

Can you export that create action and attach it so I can try to duplicate?

and FYI, the ability to add activities on 'non-activity details' activities is for the purpose of posting to the Activity Log specific milestones such as status changes so you can get a good idea of the course an object took. These may not be relevant in all cases.

Thanks, got your email. I was able to duplicate this. Expecting it's a known issue.

Actually, it appears it's by design, but not easily realized.

If you use a form in an action that has an Activity Details field in it, you are forced to have the 'add activity' option set to true and if you unselect it, you will automatically have it set back to true.

I've asked to have the option grayed out instead with an explanation of why it's grayed out in these situations.
