Moving Email Delivery to AWS

2020.11.2.2 - Today we've begun transitioning to a new email provider (AWS) to manage our outgoing email delivery. There should be no impact on deliveries.

GSuite customers may see some emails delayed by up to 4minutes as spam filters adjust to our new IP addresses.

Please reach out to our support team if you see any issues with the service.

We've also resolved several issues with downloading files that have been uploaded to bookings.

New: Booking Locks enable safer multi-user scheduling

2020.11.0 - We've introduced a new feature called booking locks that restrict the editing of a booking to a single user at a time, reducing the risk of changes being lost when multiple users are scheduling.

The print out contains all the information on the booking preview screen and can be sent to a printer or to a PDF document (depending on your browser).

Extend Billable Items with Custom Fields

2020.10.1 - We hope you're having a great start to the week! We've just rolled out 2020.10.1 which includes an enhancement several bug fixes to billable items as well as the ability to add additional fields and metadata via Custom Fields.

We'll be looking to improve the usability of the data captured in billable item custom fields in the coming weeks, but we thought it was important to get this feature out there to at least allow data to be captured.

Happy Scheduling!

Get setup faster, and bulk add Users and Resources to FoxOMS

2020.10 - Whether you're just getting started with FoxOMS, or if your business is expanding, a feature to assist the bulk creation of users and resources has been a popular feature request.

2020-10-12 17_01_02-FoxOMS _ Schedule.png

Today we've released our first version of the "Quick Setup" tool now living in the FoxOMS admin menu. It allows a comma separated list of resources and people to be pasted in, and automatically transformed into users and resources.

See the changes made to bookings with the new Booking History Timeline

2020.9.0 - We've made some improvements to the Booking Preview window, which now features (among other things), a booking history pane that shows the entire history of changes made to a booking.

This information is great when you're working in a fast paced environment where changes occur frequently. The Booking Preview window now also dynamically loads linked project and client information.

This is fantastic for quickly getting more information about the current project or contact information for the client and ultimately reducing the need to have to leave the schedule window.

Detailed information about the relevant quotes, invoices and work orders are now also available from within the Booking Preview window.
