January / February update

👋 Hi there!

We've been busy piling up new features and fixes. Here's a summary of all the recent changes:

7/7 support

You can now activate Saturday and Sunday as shift days. Previously this was not feasible, mostly because our first users were not working through the weekends. Head over your schedule settings to configure it.

Adjust the number of shifts per day

You can now adjust the number of shifts for each day of the week. This is particularly useful when:

  • you want to do 7/7 days support (activate Saturday and Sunday)
  • you have regular busier days (Monday!)
  • you have regular quieter days (Friday?)

Adjust the number of shifts for a particular date

You can now override the number of shifts for a particular date. This is useful when you exceptionally need more people (black Friday) or fewer/no people at all (company holidays).

Here's how to do it:

Limit the maximum number of shifts assigned to team members

By default, TurnShift computes a booking plan automatically. This is handy because you don't have to manually calculate the number of shifts to book per assignee.

But there are cases where you absolutely don't want people to be tasked with more than one shift (or more) per month. You can now configure that in the schedule settings:

Other changes:

  • mobile rendering is now good enough in most places, allowing you to administrate schedules and book shifts on the run
  • booking plans are now always up to date, reflecting changes in schedule settings, number of shifts, teams, and team members
  • fixed a bug where we would send "You have to book undefined shifts this month" 😹
  • added a "There's a new version of TurnShift" banner for people keeping a tab open on TurnShift (you know who you are)

On the tech side

  • we upgraded all of our dependencies
  • we now build for es6 browsers only (bye-bye IE11)
  • we added sentry alerts everywhere
  • we moved to Node 14.x
  • we moved to Next.js latest version

🙌 Happy scheduling
