  • Product: Voyager
  • Product Version: 2001.1
  • Relevant for Installation Type: Dedicated-Direct; Direct; Local; Total Care

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




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


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