6.4 Additional Information About the Work Center CafeOne Application Setup

  • The error for the row you selected generally displays at the bottom after the system finds the parent and the other children to the parent.

  • The system only finds 100 records at the top level from the parent. There may be more errors that are not being displayed. The Work Center (P012503X) displays more records than the previous Work Center (P012503).

  • If only the Report/Version or Report input variables are populated, the Work Center application displays an input Date. The default date is one week back from the current week. If you change the default date, the system uses the date until you close the browser (IE, Firefox, Chrome, and so on).

  • If a Work Center Input is populated from CafeOne, then no date box displays. The system finds the most recent records matching the input passed from the application.

  • For some applications when they first start, no data is passed to the Work Center Input, so the date box displays until you select a row. To resolve this issue, you can create a setting in CafeOne to only display if a certain parameter is met.
