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.

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...
