Error description

  • STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
    - Go to System Properties application.
    - Find the webclient.useClientTimer property.
    - Its value is already set to = 1
    - Go to Work Order Tracking application
    - Find an existing WO record (e.g. in Wappr status)
    - Open the Calendar lookup for any DateTime field, such as
    Scheduled Start
    - The TimePicker on the right shows a number of timeslots.
    - The range of the timeslots is 12.00am (midnight) - 2.45am
    - This is always the case regardless of the client machine's
    local time
    - It should show a range of timeslots showing a 2-hour range
    matching the current DateTime on the client machine
    - The webclient.useClientTimer property's value of 1 is
    therefore not taken into account
    CURRENT ERRONEOUS RESULT:
    The webclient.useClientTimer property's value of 1 is therefore
    not taken into account
    EXPECTED RESULT:
    If webclient.useClientTimer = 1, then the Time picker should
    adjust to display timeslots matching the current System
    DateTime (including one hour before SYSDATE and one hour after
    SYSDATE)
    ADDITIONAL INFO:
    This was working in Maximo 7.5.0.x up to Maximo 7.5.0.7
    New system property 'webclient.useClientTimer' was then added
    to adjust the default time on the Date/Time Calendar widget to
    use the client workstation's local time.
    

Local fix

  • Users need to scroll down to the relevant timeslot close to
    current SysDateTime.
