Request for Macro Assistance - Copy Event and Subtype
Posted on Nov 21, 2017
 

Since we have added subtypes some macros no longer function.

 

Our macro is currently not working with new events that have a subtype. When copying the event, such as to CrimeScene or Transport the macro is trying to force a subtype from the original event onto the CRIMESCENE or TRANSPORT event type which doesn't exist.

 

Use Case: An example is that if a call (DV/IN PROGRESS) needs to be copied over to Crime Scene it will try to create an event (CRIMESCENE/IN PROGRESS) which doesn't exist and it falls back and creates a call with the original call type (DV/In PROGRESS) in a lower prirotity 8 which is for CSU. 

 

We need help to create a macro that will COPY the event, DV/In Progress, and not have the marco try to crate a new call that is CRIMEScene/In Progress. It should only take the Event Type and not subtype. This is a high priority due to it affecting CSU and TRU functions and our current work around does not generate necessary notifications for dispatch on their pagers or MPS units.

 

Please assist!

Do you have experience with macros ? And tracking your command lines (CDCMDKEY) back to the specific macros being used? It may also not be specifically a macro, could just be hardcoded parameters in the CDCMDKEY.
