Automatically generate Project Codes

2020.3.5 - In this release we've introduced a powerful little feature that allows you to generate automatic project codes within the New Project form. Simply click the little lightning bolt and it will generate a new project code incrementally. Administrators can set the start of the numbering to seamlessly integrate with your existing project numbering scheme.

We've also added a subtle feature that now prevents the project form from accidentally closing if you've already started filling in values, avoiding a potentially frustrating situation.

Fixed accessing Work Orders from Custom Groups

2020.3.4 - This is a minor update that resolves an issue that would prevent access to the Work Orders component from custom groups.

Issues saving schedules with >1000 resources/groups

2020.3.3 - We've rolled out another release that includes a fix for an issue where Schedules with more than 1000 resources / resource groups would not save correctly.

Booking Work Orders

2020.3.2 - Many of our customers were excited when we added billable items to our feature set, allowing miscellaneous costs to be easily added to quotes and bookings…

Today we take billable items one step further, with a new booking feature called Work orders.

Work orders allow billable items to be added directly to a booking, without the need to create a quote or invoice first. This work order can be used to automatically generate a quote or invoice that includes incidental costs you'd like to pass onto the client.

Work orders can be accessed via the new shortcut in the redesigned booking quick info panel or within the booking sidebar.

Fixed people resource name issue

2020.1.11.1 - Today we rolled out a small bug fix that resolves an issue where changes to the names of people (that were also assigned as resources) would not automatically update the resource name.

Booking Notification Updates

2020.1.9 - We've just pushed an update which adds several improvements, particularly with booking notifications. These email notifications now show the booking client as well as any repeat booking information.

This release also fixes an issue that would not refresh the schedule if the realtime updates feature was disabled. It also adds additional booking information to the booking preview screen.

New Schedule Option to BCC Admins on Booking Notification Emails

2020.1.8 - This small update includes a new feature that allows administrators to be BCC'd on all booking notification emails. This was requested by one of our University clients and is useful if you want to have a complete audit trail on all booking notifications being delivered to user resources.

Information on how to enable the BCC Admins feature can be found in our documentation.

Fixes for recently introduced schedule issues

2020.1.6 - We've rolled out a maintenance release which fixes 2 issues introduced by the major 2020.1.5 release:

  1. Booking clash exclusions based on resource types (an advanced option in the schedule module settings) are now honoured again. You won't receive booking clash warnings if you've selected resource types to exclude.
  2. An issue that would not display bookings if they were created without any resources.

Thank-you to everyone who has helped report issues.

Schedule Performance Upgrades

2020.1.5 - We've just released our first major software update for 2020. Most of the improvements are under the hood but they include:

  • A major upgrade to the core scheduling library that powers the Schedule. This upgrade optimises performance and includes several fixes for known issues.
  • The Schedule now uses the FoxOMS API to process all save and deletions. This allows us to move forward with several exciting integration features that have been waiting for this to occur.
  • New Schedule PDF export action allows specifying of portrait or landscape modes, as well as a much higher quality representation of what the schedule is showing.
  • Added ability to control whether booking repeats are deleted when removing a master booking.
  • Optimised how FoxOMS loads assets to improve page load times and overall snappiness of the application.

If you find any issues or you have any suggestions on how we can further improve FoxOMS, please contact us.

Fixed issue with creating projects

2019.12.5 - We've rolled out a bug fix for an issue that prevented some limited users from successfully creating projects with clients added.
