I believe you can set this to any mobile screen.  we used a custom screen and that app param for one customer.

Are you talking FSM or mWO here?

 

In mWO you have two options, Home or My Work. 
In FSM you have two specified options, Home or JobList. I believe you may be able to specify others, but I have never seen it used. The app param does say “for additional values, contact FSM Support.”

Which screen is it you’d want to be your start screen?

That should all you need to do.  Renitialized cache on server, and Reinit mobile.

I just tried it and it works fine for me.
 

Refresh cache. Init Device.

I honestly don’t know if custom screens are supported since the parameter is global and the screen might only exist in a certain design revision. @Lee Pinchbeck , any ideas?

Hi @Muthujayashree,

I have not done this myself but it may be one of two things that occurs when custom screens and fields are used in FSM:

  1. The screen name entered is the user visible name but not the ‘true’ database name that the system would use to refer to it. In this case you have entered ‘Demo’ but in the scripting and the database does this show as ‘Demo’ or is it one of the existing, blank custom screens that has been amended to be ‘Demo’? If so, you would still need to use the original database name for the screen in the app param for it to find the screen correctly.
  2. The other thing is that the new screen would need to be added to a relevant code table so that the app param can see it in that code table list when it looks for it. I am not aware of such a table for this though so I would be leaning towards point 1 if it is either of these.

Kind regards,

Lee Pinchbeck

Hi @Lee Pinchbeck ,

  1.  Through client script it works fine i.e in the tap event when i apply the script i am able to  navigates to demo screen 

       code: goToScreen("Demo");

       even i add a menu under home and provide the screen name , i am able to open “Demo” screen.

 

  1. can you tell me which is the code table that your referring to .

thanks
