I recently installed Field service in a new Trial instance to play with the new UCI interface and the Microsoft Field Service Mobile app.
There’s definitely a learning curve moving from standard UI which has Field services related menu items in the same sitemap but with the new Field service version, Field service related entities can only be accessed from the UCI app. See below screenshot on how to access the APP:
Now, once you click on the app, you can change the area from the bottom in order to configure FS (the Settings area)
I think it’s more confusing if you have used Field service 7.x with standard UI. Once you browse the settings area, you will quickly realize that the Scheduling settings like Scheduling parameters (to enable maps) are missing. The FS settings area looks like this:
In order to access scheduling related configuration settings, there’s another App called (Universal Resource Scheduling) which now sits outside Field services and can be accessed in the following manner:
Once you are in the Universal Resource Scheduling app, you can access the Settings area from the “change Area” dropdown at the bottom and then you will see all Scheduling related configuration settings.
Hope it helped 🙂
