TBD Fields on Templates
In order to see the TBD options on the templates you will need to use the following field names: DeliveryOnFormatted, DeliveryStartAtFormatted and DeliveryPickupAtFormatted. The following instructions must be done on each template that you want to update.
- The TBD fields can’t be formatted like other date fields since it has to be passed in as a string value and not a date value.
- If you used these fields on your template and a delivery date was NOT a TBD then the date would look like this: 07/07/2015. If a dealer wanted their other fields to match that look, they may need to change the formatting on the other date fields to be mm/dd/yyyy.
- The invoice report is already setup to display the TBD options, but in a future release dealers will have the option to customize that.
If a dealer is using another Delivery Date field like DeliveryOn, you will need to edit that field. To do this select the field, right click and select “Edit Field”.
A dialog box will open. Change the Field Name to DeliveryOnFormatted and uncheck the Preserve formatting during updates checkbox (in the lower right corner). Then click OK. You would need to do the same steps with the Start / End times and Pickup Start / End times if they want those on their templates.
