[OPEN LOW] Wrong notification after hiring janitor Empty [OPEN LOW] Wrong notification after hiring janitor

Fri Nov 02, 2018 11:51 am
In a new hospital, after hiring a janitor and assigning them to a workspace (ie cleaning cupboard) they go straight home saying "No workspace assigned".  In fact other players inform me that the real reason they are going home is because nothing is dirty yet.   So the notice is very misleading and I thought I had done something wrong.   Apart from fixing the words on the notice, I'd ask you to consider changing behaviour and instead force janitors to remain for their shift in case something becomes dirty later.

Ok I will do that, in the meantime can you tell me authoritatively that janitors are intended to go straight home when there is nothing to clean? Because at the moment I am not sure *which* aspect of this is the bug - the notice, or the janitor behaviour.

Here is my save file.  That's two janitors apparently properly assigned, one to each department's cleaning closet, and both just walked off home with declaring themselves without a workspace

Yes, if there is nothing to clean they will gome home and return, when dirt will appear - but if dirt appears on the area that is not assigned as some room (corridor, waiting, room, etc.) it will be cleaned at the end.

I see. Seems a strange behaviour since the doctors will happily stay in their rooms even when there are no patients waiting to see them. So maybe there is no bug to report at all, it is working as designed. All that is needed is to make it more clear to the player why their janitor is going home, so that they don't think they did something wrong.
