Changing the Days of the Week Displayed on the Dispatch Board

This task is a step in Process of Setting Up the Dispatch Board.

By default the Dispatch Board Gantt chart displays Monday to Friday as the days on which activities can be scheduled; Saturday and Sunday are typically excluded.

Some companies require that activities can be scheduled for employees on any day of the week, including Saturday and Sunday.

In the following example procedure, the Dispatch Board is configured to display all seven days of the week.

See Using Siebel Tools for more information on performing configuration tasks with Siebel Tools.
