Update 2/4/2021. 

On the new Schedule Board, you would be able to see the Booked hours aggregation and the Name of the job on the Bookings itself. However, the ability to show a custom field on the Bookings in the Days view, is still something on our roadmap, not yet available in the schedule board. 

Thanks,

Vinay

Allow different types of work hours, such as normal, overtime, travel-only, etc.

We often get requirements where bookings should not be stricly constrained by the working hours. For an emergency, it may be acceptable that the technician works longer. Or travel from/to the job might be possible or even required outside the working hours. It would be great if we could define...

The time window of a work order only works if opening hours are the same each day. However if the store is open Mo-Fr 8am-8pm, but o...

Connected Work Orders on schedule board

When the Work Orders are booked for several different resources it would be very useful if all the connected work orders could "stand out" or be marked in a separate color if one of them were selected.

That way the scheduler could easily see which resources were booked for that particul...
