    • Article Type: Known Issue
    • Product: Voyager
    • Product Version: 2001.1

    Bug Report for

    Module: Media Scheduling
    Release(s): 2001.1, 2001.2
    Server Platform(s) affected: Solaris (all)

    Expected Results:
    In a booking in Media Scheduling, typing in the Date Finished field should not cause changes to the
    Date Needed field. Voyager 2000 and previous worked this way.

    Actual Results:

    Workflow implications:
    This doesn't seem to happen on every date. However, it leads to staff confusion and needless data re-entry.

    Replication steps:
    * Media.exe > Tools > Options > Scheduler > click "Key in times"
    * New Booking or Booking Wizard
    * enter Requester
    * key in Date Needed
    * tab to Date Finished > start keying
    * Date Needed changes

    WORKAROUND:


    Resolution:

    Symptoms

    When entering start and end dates using keystrokes (rather than the dropdown) entering the ending date CHANGES the starting date.

    Defect Status

    Issue 15839 fixed in Voyager 8.1.2 and higher.

    Replication Steps

    1. Media.exe > Tools > Options > Scheduler > click "Key in times"
    2. New Booking or Booking Wizard
    3. enter Requester
    4. Type in Date Needed
    5. Tab to Date Finished > start typing
    Result: Date Needed changes

    Workaround

    Click the ellipsis next to the dates to use the Calendar.
