Error description

  • PROBLEM:   Assignment duration increases for work orders with
    multiple assignments
    
    
    STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
    1. Go to Work Order Tracking application
    
    
    2. Create a new work order e.g. work order  TESTWO1
    
    
    3. Go to Assignments tab and click New Row button
    
    
    Enter a description for the first assignment. Enter a craft and
    enter a scheduled start date e.g. 5/13/19 11:00 AM for 0:45
    hours
    
    
    
    4. Click New Row button to create another assignment
    
    
    Enter a description, a craft, enter scheduled start date
    e.g. 5/13/19 10:45 AM for 25:00 hours
    
    
    
    5. Go to Graphical Assignment application and create a work
    list to bring in the work order created in step 2 above e.g.
    work order  TESTWO1
    
    
    6. Go to Work View tab and work order  TESTWO1  shows up
    
    
    7. Drag the work bar of one of the assignments to a future date
    from the Gantt view
    
    
    e.g. Locate the work bar for the assignment that requires 0:45
    hours to complete. Click and drag the work bar from 5/13/19
    11:00 AM to drop it to 5/14/19 11:00AM
    
    
    
    
    RESULTS:   Duration of the assignment increases to the sum of
    duration between the starting point of the assignment to the
    new date in future to which it was dragged to
    
    
    e.g. Duration of the assignment should have been 0:45 hours.
    After moving the assignment to 5/14/19 10:00AM , the duration
    has increased to 24 hours.
    
    
    Please note that this behaviour is observed on only work orders
    with multiple assignments. There is no duration increase on
    work orders with a single assignment.
    
    
    EXPECTED RESULTS:  Moving an assignment to a future date should
    NOT change the duration of an assignment.
