Organize Schedule Board tabs

When users/administrators handle a significant number of schedule boards (this gets even worse when using RSO, because that adds boards per RSO scope) they are faced with a long row of tabs and need to scroll left and right to find the respective board. Suggestion: Introduce a 2-level hierachy...

It would be nice if we can integrate those two and show all scheduled Resources and Appointment activities as ‘Appointment&rsq...

Smarter schedule board view defaulting (hours/days) defaulting to hours/days view automatically - enhancement

Currently the variable that drives whether the Scheduling Assistant opens on the hours or days view is the duration of the work being scheduled. If this duration is greater than 24h, the board defaults to days. Less than 24h and it default to hours. In the scenario where a job is less than 24 ...

Hi Alastor, Thank you for your feedback.

The schedule assistant landing view logic for Hours/Days/Weeks/Months view is on the roadmap. However, landing on Horizontal/List view is an existing setting on the schedule board.

Spread schedule board panels across different monitors

Most dispatchers use multiple monitors. It would be beneficial if the different panels (in particular the list of RRs, the map, the Gantt chart) could be detached and placed on different monitors to make perfect use of the available real estate.

We often see users accidentally changing settings on a schedule board, affecting other user of the same board. Unfortunately even education does not work, as it's not possible to track who did the last changes. Suggestion: Have users confirm that they would like to save the updated settings or...

Hi Mark, Thank you for your feedback.

There is no direct relationship between a Skill/characteristic and Ratings of a Proficiency/Rating model. Could you please provide little more context around your scenario here?

Start week by MONDAY in the scheduleboard

Not everyone lives in America which means that to some people week starts with mondays and not sundays. Right now the week view of the schedule board shows sunday as the first day, which means if you have a booking monday-sunday (which is a full week in europe), it looks like it overlap to next...

Hi Kunihiko, Thank you for your feedback.

We need some more details to understand your suggestion better. Can you please help us by answering the following questions?

1. What are the exact filters that you are looking for ?

2. Also did you know that the Requirement panels are backed by the Requirement entty views ? These are supported from the same fetchXML as the advanced find views, however, they are not the same. If you look at the Entity grid views, you wouldn't see the advanced filtering like Advanced find does.

Thanks,
