Ability to edit Activity forms to remove unwanted fields to make for a cleaner UI and user experienc

Mark_WahlertMark_Wahlert Customer Advanced IT Monkey ✭✭✭
Remove or edit Activity form fields such as add CI, scheduled start, description, etc. Many of these aren't used, so it confuses users. Description and notes also confuses users.. do they add text in one or the other. Eg. I'd like to have read only Activity Instructions, similar to an RO, and nothing shown but Title, Implementer, CAT, STAGE, PRIORITY, NOTES, INSTRUCTIONS (read only)

Details:
As an administrator I would like to be able to edit an JSON formatted template file to show, hide, disable or set to required, any field on the Manual Activity form. This should work the same as Incidents, Changes, Problems etc.

    I agree on this one that activity should have some sort of .js file in customspace folder. But in the meantime you can hide forms using this one. https://community.cireson.com/discussion/59/hide-activity-fields#latest

    Excellent Thomas, thanks for mentioning that. If you would like to see improvements or find issues with those scripts, please comment and we will see if we can't incorporate those changes!

    Is it possible to add Activity history to the WI forms? Our users have been asking for that.

    While possible, it would be cluttered and performance affected. What we've done in the past instead is add a button to each activity form that pops up a history box and shows the history items for the activity. 

    So so yes it is possible.

    A history would be useful as read-only so we can see:

    A - person makes decision

    B - person makes decision comments

    C - person reruns activity

    D - person left rerun comments, etc.

    The history already exists on the activity in scsm. We just expose that data in a readable fashion via the portal. Similar as to how it works with the parent work item today.

    Hi @seth_coussens, is there any code you can share for adding the history activity button to tasks? I would be most delighted to have a solution like this!! Not being able see the MA history has been something that has plagued our Team Leads and Management staff as each time they go to review a ticket/escalation I end up pulling the information from the console for them since we are strictly Cireson portal only and do not allow access to the console for anyone outside of the SCSM Admin/Dev team.

    Take a look at this thread: https://community.cireson.com/discussion/5005/view-powershell-activity#latest

    The solution there doesn't change what is displayed on the Activity tab; but it adds a button to open the activity in a fully customization screen.
