When updating the status of a production order directly from “Created” to “Started”, job scheduling should automatically happen with the scheduling direction always being “Backward from delivery date”. But instead the system seems to default to “Forwards” scheduling direction. I can’t seem to change this. We are currently getting around the problem by using a two step process that is annoying some of my staff, as shown below:
Step 1: Production order > Update > Job scheduling
Step 2: Production order > Update > Start
We do not want to have to do step one as this should happen automatically when doing step 2 AND use “Backward from delivery date” scheduling direction by default.
