Frequently Asked Questions

How do advanced and simple configuration modes work?
On some rules and modules, configuration mode can be set to either Simple or Advanced. When Advanced configuration mode is selected, you get to see and set some additional, advanced settings for rule or module. Once you configure these settings, they are applied and used even if you switch back to Simple configuration mode. Advanced settings are not reset to their default values when hidden. Instead, you should reset them manually.

How are RunOnce rule executed?
RunOnce rules are executed on demand, when you click on Execute RunOnce rules in application dashboard. When multiple RunOnce rules are active, all of them will be executed at once.

What to do when the module doesn’t execute rules?

  1. Make sure to enable the module.
  2. Make sure to enable rule.
  3. Check Logs (You can find the logs path defined in the Extension Kit configuration under Logging -> Logging destinations -> File)

We always have the same structure for our projects – is it possible to somehow automatically create Project Phases and Milestones whenever new project is created?

We supported this case with Extended Object Templates. You can specify which objects (by class or object type) need to be cloned whenever original object template is created. That way you are able to have the same project structure whenever the new project is created.

Is it possible to use the children objects as trigger instead of the parent?
