Activities are used in several ways in Eralis Job, including:
- Control who can access and transact against jobs.
- Adjust pricing to project specific pricing.
- Provide feedback using the standard SAP Business One calendars regarding the work allocation of staff.
- Contribute toward scheduling in the Eralis Microsoft Integration scheduling.
- Provide work commitments for staff in the field via Eralis Anywhere or Eralis Service Pro application.
Note that Eralis Service Pro has been replaced by Eralis Anywhere.
In the system setup and configuration, there is an option to enable the creation of activities for scheduled tasks. With this option enabled, the system will create an activity for each new scheduled task bar created. If a quote line is also being created, the system will link the activity and quote line.
Activities will not be created for non-productive scheduling. Activities will only be created for staff resources. The HR record in SAP Business One must be linked to a valid SAP Business One user account for the link to be created.
When the activity is created, the following field values are set:
|The staff resource scheduled on the line.
|BP Code from the Master Job.
|BP Name from the Master Job.
|Contact from the Subjob.
|Contact phone number from the Subjob.
|If the description field in the extended task bar information has not been updated, the system will set a default value Scheduled activity for job: <Subjob number>. If the description field has been updated, then the system will use the description field.

|End time from the task bar.
|Duration from the task bar.
