5.1.17 Partial Holiday now Short Workday

November 6, 2017
  • New Tools>Shifts>Shorten Day to delete the portion of shifts after a specified time on a specific day (e.g. New Year’s Eve) to reflect that close early days are now kept as workdays rather than holidays. We recommend that any existing part holidays be changed back to a working day.
  • Staffing Levels may now be invoked directly from Edit>Location.
  • Web 4.0.20 new features:
    • Advanced mode is now automatically forced if needed by already saved URLs or by a user’s default display.
    • Location names containing apostrophes (aka single quotes) are now supported.
    • Support for picking a date on a cell phone held vertically has been restored.
    • Shifts in sick/vacation locations now show separately for schedulers even when sick/vacation are normally grouped under a common label in Web View.
  • AutoSched 2.1.13 new features:
    • Edit>Staff now supports new controls per employee for:
      • Minimum time/day to keep open so you can designate that ideally specific people should have blocks of time not auto scheduled.
      • Prefer on-desk hours/day max to spread total on-desk hours around.
    • New [Status] button that displays stats on the run in progress. Suggestion: request a large number of iterations, periodically press [Status] and, when the results stop improving, press [Stop].
