Step 1: Process Flow

  • Mechanics are assigned multiple job cards every week and will carry out the jobs on them. Once a job is complete, they update the Job Cards module, which automatically updates the Repair Bills module.
  • An event is to be automatically created every Friday evening, for the supervisor to get reports from all mechanics.
  • The function must automatically create an event with the following details:
    • Event Name: Report for the Week
    • Event Location: Front Office
    • Set the From and To times to Friday 5:00 PM to 6:00 PM.
    • Host: Supervisor
    • Participants: Mechanics
    • Description: A meeting for everyone to report on their work for the week.
    • Repeat Type: Weekly

Step 3: Execute the Function

As you might have seen while creating the function, the trigger points can be in various different places. They are:

  • Button
  • Automation
  • Schedules
  • Related Lists
  • Standalone

This function works best when created in Automation and used in a workflow. This allows you to set the function to be triggered every Friday morning, or whenever you prefer.

You have successfully executed the Function for Auto-Creating Events on specific days of the week. Next, check out the Data Transfer across Modules scenario.
