With a new year comes a new release of Better Scheduling (finally!!). We are busy building out the new version which has caused the delay with releasing 3.7 but I'm happy to say it's finally here! Here's the breakdown of all the fixes and new features!
Oh by the way if you want to upgrade, just send me the sheet details and share the sheet to me - kris at shooshmonkey.com - and i'll update you. See our instructions here.
If staff don't need to be assigned to a Job or Task, they can just delete the event. This will remove them from the Job/Task in WorkflowMax (WFM). To reassign just add them back to the Job/Task in WFM.
Great for businesses that what to be able to allow their staff to accept work or nominate availability, assign them to the Job/Task, they leave the event if they accept or delete to not accept the Job/Task. To reset and pull the Job/Task fresh from WFM just delete all the events at the same time, they will all sync from WFM to Google Calendar (GCAL) again.
Not much to say here, but 'advanced settings' makes more sense.
We've updated our documentation to give you suggestions for sync interval times you could used based on how many jobs and tasks you have. Access the link from the our Help Doc section on the website or clicking on the What do these settings mean? link in Sync Options.
When asked to send the sheet details to me for updating, clicking the Send sheet details to support option sends me all the details I need to access the sheet but not the permissions. This required an extra step but now this happens automatically giving me editor access to update your sheet with a new version.
To revoke permissions from me just click on the Share button and remove me as an editor.
Yay! Description field now contains rich text links.
When the start/end custom fields in WFM were blank Better Scheduling would throw a conflict on the next sync. This has been fixed.
When changing the owner of a Job/Task it would sometimes leave the old event in the calendar. It's now changed and correctly transferred to the new owner.
Updated the Setup Wizard to reflect the new terminology from Google regarding the Cloud Platform Project (formerly "Developers Console Project")
When deleting staff from the Job/Task in WFM sometimes the changes wouldn't delete all the events from GCAL, now it does.
Status now updates on next sync. Wicked!
