March 26th, 2020 • By: Schedule3W

    • Tools>Defaults now shows both the current defaults for the user plus a New column showing the settings that would be revised by clicking [Save new].
    • The automatic recovery of interrupted network connections to the database has been improved.

5.3.15 Expanded Shift Date Change

March 12th, 2020 • By: Schedule3W
  • Shift Information now, like Web Update, supports changing the date of a shift (or working shift plus its service points) within the year. Previously this could only be done by drag/drop within the viewed 7 days.
  • History now allows DB Admins to display change history for any scheduler. Schedulers still see by me.
  • Tools>Shifts>Empty now immediately displays a table of empty shifts (i.e. periods not meeting specified Staffing Levels). A CSV may still be saved/opened.
  • The right-click Assign Location menu option has been removed because its functionality is provided by [] Then clone for an SP shift when adding working shifts or by right-click Clone for existing working shifts.
  • New Retry option when saving a CSV from Tools>Reports Format Tab>[Advanced]>”Just CSV” option and from the [Save]option of any Database View report. This handles leaving the prior copy open in a spreadsheet.
  • Edit>Location now allows Locations to be marked as Historic so past shifts are retained but new shifts can’t be scheduled.
  • New Include Historical Staff option in Tools>Reports>select [Multiple Employees]>[Options] so that shift reports of just specific Historical Status employees may be generated without changing the employee back to Active.
  • Web View 4.3.05 improvements:
    • Shift Information now shows for schedulers the shift creation date and by whom plus, if a change has been made, its when, by whom and prior employee/location.
    • Forgot your password screen’s text has been improved.
    • New control in Options to flag shifts that have been changed Today or since Yesterday with a ^. Please email any other duration that would be useful.

5.3.14 Keep a refreshed schedule on display

February 5th, 2020 • By: Schedule3W
  • Web View 4.3.04 improvements:
    • Have the latest library or a department’s schedule always available on a computer monitor, tablet or even a browser enabled TV. The new stale=## parameter automatically greys out the schedule after the specified # of minutes. People just press [Enter] or click/tap the new [Refresh] button and the display immediately refreshes.
    • New Revise link at the top of all displays. Click to scroll down to the format menus.

5.3.13 Edit>Staff: new Who/When of last change

January 14th, 2020 • By: Schedule3W
  • Edit>Staff now automatically tracks the who and when of the last change to each employee record. These fields display in the rightmost columns of the table. Likewise Edit>Resources does this for each resource.

5.3.12 Expanded access to max Location Web View date

December 19th, 2019 • By: Schedule3W
  • Making a location’s shifts viewable for a new period is now even easier because updating the maximum view date for a location’s shifts is now more accessible:
    • Users with Scheduler (No Edit>Staff) rights may now use Edit>Date Ranges.
    • Web Update now supports Schedulers revising the maximum date via a new [Update] button in the Tools>Locations display.
  • Tools>Web Services>[Options] now has a tick option for suppressing Guest Access (i.e. to force use of personal passwords).
  • Web View: Forgot your Password changes:
    • Its instructions and button label have been clarified.
    • The email with the change password link may now be configured to use your O365/Exchange server (rather than the
      default SendGrid service).
  • Tools>Reports now supports concept date periods of a day 3 days through 6 days hence plus 2 months and
    3 months hence. These reduce the need for entering Custom Date Ranges.
  • Web View’s [Help] now includes a tips section on using mobile devices including how to setup one click access to Schedule3W.
