Only show weekdays (or lmited days) on the schedule board

Many companies do not schedule resources on the weekend, thus it would be helpful if we could hide these days completely on the schedule board. I would not fix this to Sat/Sun as some countries have different weekend days or companies might have entirely different working days.

Schedule Board - Optimize Day View

Scenario: we are planing service jobs in a heavy industry solution for multiple days! As soon as we choose the day view. This view shows on each resource / day cell an aggregation of the numbers of booked hours. We don't need to see the hours, we need to see the Service Job name! Like it is in...

Update 6/24/2024

On the new schedule board you can now also set the Account Name on Interday Bookings, closing out this feature request. 

 

Best,

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

Same dispaly of schedule board booking tooltips view for hourly, daily, monthly view

Booking Tooltips view is differently displayed (hover by mouse over reservation) within the schedule board hourly view setting vs daily and weekly views setting. The Idea is to allow to set up the same booking tooltips for hourly, daily, weekly scheduling calendar view.

Booking Template Extensibility available for Multi-Day views, not just hourly board

Currently you can only extend the booking templates for the Hourly Schedule Board. Any updates to Booking Templates that you want to see on DAY, WEEK, MONTH will not show as it's not available. Recommendation is to make that extensible throughout the product. EXAMPLE: I have the following Book...

Update 03/31/20

We released "Auto Update Booking Travel" feature in April 2019, to support the Calculation of travel time when booking is created by Drag and Drop on the Schedule Board. Please find more details here, https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dynamics365/common-scheduler/schedule-travel-time#add-travel-time-with-manual-scheduling

We intend on shipping this short term. There are many details to work out such as, what happens when travel is 30 hours, or impossible, such as traveling across the globe. But we intend on handling the primary use cases short term.

Allow resources to travel before work hours start or after they end

Especially in urban areas, there is often the requirement to start the first job with the beginning of the work hours. The resource is responsible for traveling there outside working hours. The same at the end of the day. We could define this at resource level, so that the first job of the day...
