Many a time we have requirements in Oracle Field Service Cloud where Tech. while working on activity need to suspend the activity he is working on and so some thing else , say Pick additional Part

Such functionality can be achieved in OFS by 

  • Suspending the Main activity
  • Create a new Interrupt Activity
  • Complete the Interrupt activity
