This article lists the most significant recent enhancements to Schedule Master. At the end we also remind you of big features that have been around for awhile. Click on the title of the area of interest to get to an article with more information.
New Online Billing Config Option - 2/11/22
This new option will allow clubs to turn off the link for entering a postflight without a schedule from the 'My Postflight' screen. This will limit access to entering a postflight without a schedule to administrative users from the administrative screens for flight management.
You can now include a link on the user's statement page that will redirect them to your club's online payment processor. This is only for organizations not using our integrated payment methods, such as credit card, eCheck/ACH and PayPal.
Schedule Context Menu on Touch Device - 10/4/21
A context menu of options related to a schedule has been available for awhile through a right click of the schedule. Now this option menu is also available on touch devices with a long touch.
Schedule User Groups - 8/6/21
Scheduling groups can be defined to allow an administrator to schedule for a group of users. This might be useful for a variety of scenarios, including allowing an instructor to schedule for his students.
Schedule History - 8/2/21
If you want to see the edit history of a schedule, you can right click the schedule and select Schedule History.
Extra Fields on Schedule Page - 6/3/21
This enhancement allows us to add additional fields to the new schedule screen. There is the possibility for 2 free form text fields and one dropdown. Contact us for additional details and a quote for configuring and testing this option.
Resource Visibility by User - 5/25/21
This enhancement gives the flexibility to show or hide resources by user. If these fields are not set, the default is to show all resources. This setting does not apply to sysops.
Shared Resources - 3/1/21
This enhancement allows the schedules for shared resources to be viewed from a separate club. For example, if your organization has an instructor that instructs in multiple organizations (org A and org B) using Schedule Master, we can configure it so that the instructor schedules made in org A are viewable in org B and the instructor schedules made in org B are viewable in org A. Conflicting schedules would also be prevented. A schedule would only be editable from the organization that created it, and no detail would be displayed other than the start and end time and the chosen label (e.g. Busy) unless the signed in user was the instructor associated with the shared schedule. Configuring this option would require permission from sysops in each organization. This feature is currently in beta test. If you are interested in having this set up, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This enhancement records new offset fields for calculation of the TTAF and TSMOH, which are displayed on the Resource Status screen.
This enhancement will allow users to enter time for resources outside the organization. There is an option to require these hours be approved by a sysop. Any approved hours will be counted when determining any currency requirements for scheduling a particular resource.
The new postflight screen will allow users to view recently completed postflights. The club can also set various options if they want to allow users to edit their postflight or recents. See article for more information.
The verbiage for the password reset email now has 2 options. The new welcome format is for new users, and the password reset template is for those users that forgot their password. The article for sending users their login information has been updated to include the verbiage from these templates. These templates can be customized by organization.
The list of destination options (or schedule types) is configurable. These options can also have corresponding placeholder text for the textbox to the right.
This new feature allows you to format a waiver or member agreement image that the user must agree to before confirming their schedule.
This enhancement allows the pilot to offer ride sharing by checking the option when making a schedule and entering the details. Ride sharing will be indicated on the schedule with a special outline indicated in the key.
This enhancement allows an organization to give specific non-sysops access to specific reports.
This screen has a summary and detail view of your currency hours met.
The schedule can show a link to your club's home base weather, and the preflight can show a link to your destination airport.
