was recently asked to help a colleague figure out some date calculations based on a schedule. The requirement was to calculate a future date based on the existing value of a date/time field. I decided to document this solution (and come up with a solution for a similar problem…date addition from the current date/time based on a schedule). Working with dates and schedules can really be a pain if you don’t have good examples to work from so hopefully these help somebody at some point. Read on for the full scripts.
ere’s a quick tip for a Monday. This post comes in response to a question on the ServiceNow forums asking if it is possible to change the label of a field dynamically based on some record criteria (such as record type). It is possible, and this post will show you how it can be done.
I’m happy to report that I found it! Somebody smarter than me decided to convert the jQuery effects library for use with Prototype (which ships with ServiceNow) and incorporate those effects and animations directly in ServiceNow.
co-worker asked me for some help yesterday fulfilling an interesting requirement. He needed to set up a configuration item reference field or catalog variable that would display a calendar macro that, when clicked, would open a popup window containing a change calendar report for that configuration item. I figured this idea might be of use to others so I’m posting it here!
ave you ever wondered how you can change the default time displayed in a Date/Time dialog? In general, the Date/Time dialog is controlled by back-end code so there’s not much you can do with it. I’ve seen this question a few times now so I decided to come up with a solution.
