How to Restart the Workflow Scheduler

In the event that the QFM Workflow Scheduler stops working, non-hosted clients will need to raise the issue with their IT department. Hosted clients will need to contact SWG Support.

If any of the following errors occur, access Workflow Scheduler via the Administration menu, (Administration > Manage > Workflow Scheduler).

  • Emails do not send
  • Visits to mobile are not being received
  • Reports are not being sent
  • PPMs are not generating
  1. Within the Workflow Scheduler screen, check when the scheduler was last refreshed. If an error message to check that it is still running is given (as shown below), then go to the Windows Services app.

  2. Within Services, check whether the QFM Workflow Scheduler, that is linked to your version of QFM Web, has been started. The status should then change to Running.

    Note: If it has already been started, Stop the service and Start it again.

  3. Once the Services have been restarted, refresh the Workflow Scheduler page in QFM, and ensure the scheduler is working as expected. See below.

Logging a New Event – Values Provided Fail the Service/Work Type Checks

When attempting to log a new Service Event, if a QFM user encounters a system message which says “The values provided fail the Service/Work Type checks” (as shown below), then the user should refer to an Administrator to check QFM General Settings.

This procedure explains how an Administrator should make the appropriate checks to resolve the issue.

  1. Within the New Service Event screen, when adding a Work Type and Priority from the lists of available values, there may be an option to Restrict the list. If unchecked, this will allow you to choose any Work Type and Priority. This will then cause the above error when trying to submit the New Service Event.

  2. To disable the option to uncheck Restricted, go to Administration > Users & Profiles > General Settings.
  3. In the General Settings screen, select settings for the Global User Class, then open down the General Event Logging tab, and under Behaviour there will be two options to Restrict Work Type and Priority by Service, as shown below. Both options should be turned on to disable the Restriction button.
  4. Once the options have been selected, click Apply Settings at the bottom of the page.
    Note: When you Apply Settings you will be asked to login again.
  5. The Restriction option should not now appear when selecting a Work Type.

How do I setup a Schedule Report?

There are two job types:

  • Group Notifications
    Group Notifications allow users to attach Lists to scheduled emails, in addition to Reports. A List can either be a .CSV file attachment or rendered HTML embedded into the email body.
  • Mail Merge Notifications
    Mail Merge Notifications allow users to send emails to recipients who are part of the data contained in an existing list view. The list view would contain an email column for the recipient’s email address, and other data columns to be used in the email’s subject and body. For example, send a PO Authoriser a notification when they have an event assigned to them with a status of ‘Ready To Authorise’.
    The user can construct an email using a mail merge style interface, whereby they insert a tag representing a column name in the list view. The recipient will then receive the row-column value from the list view, via email at runtime. For example, the tag {#FirstName#} will be replaced with ‘John’ for the row in the list view corresponding to John Smith.

How can I change the view on Event Director so it looks the same on QFM Web and QM Desktop?

Problem
How can I change the view on Event Director so it looks the same on QFM Web and QM Desktop?

Resolution
The Event Director on the Desktop contains all the data in the system; it has the capacity to do this as it is a standalone program.

The Event Director programme on QFM Web is filtered based on time scale – the default value for this is 30 days but this can be changed as you require.  The reason we have a filter on the Web Event Director is to increase the performance of the system.

It is not recommend that you make these two Directors match, as the filters prevent performance issues on QFM Web.
