September 2017- Update Notes week 36

New in Rentman: Crew planner improvements, Overview of email recipients

This version includes some useful improvements for users who work a lot with the crew planner. We have also extended and improved some previous additions like the new email window and unscheduled crew column.

Version: F31 / B33. Your current version is listed in the fold-out menu under your account name.

Note: Rentman updates are not deployed simultaneously for all accounts. It can take a few days before the updates are visible to you. Read more on how we update our software.

When sending out slips or documents to receiver groups in the email modal (introduced two weeks ago), you can now view a list of all recipients and what document(s) they will receive. Click on example next to the recipients input field to open the view.

You now have multiple options of how equipment is sorted on your packing slips and quotations. We have added four choices to sort equipment. These can be configured in the template editor when editing the 'Module equipment' block. 



Crew Planner Improvements


check-small.png Speed improvement: Lock availability in crew planner

We have added the option to lock the availability for selected crew members in the planner. This allows you to keep an eye on the availability of a set of crew members while planning several functions. You no longer have to click repeatedly to get the same overview.

Another big plus of this is that the planner has to process fewer calculations, which will greatly speed up the planner when planning multiple crew members.

Recently, we added a column to view all your unscheduled crew functions in the planner. You can now also delete functions from this list to prevent it from piling up.

You can now add a message to your invitations. Simply add a free text when you invite someone for a function and it will be added in the email.

Have a little more overview and control on the availability and reservations of your crew members with this addition. The screen in below image will open when you select a period in the bottom timeline of the crew planner. In this screen, you can specify the times for availability, reservation or invite. Now you can select for which crew members the selected periode will apply.
