3. Holiday Calendar

TO SETUP THE CALENDAR:

Click on the Settings icon on the top-right of the main header and navigate to Advanced Settings > Manage Holidays.

To create or edit a new holiday, simply click on the date in question. Enter the required details in the pop-up, including the regions for which you want to be mapped.

Note: To set up the regions for your team, please contact FieldEZ Support.

The Holiday Calendar is a brand new feature where one can configure organization holidays for the users, and hence can be very useful while scheduling tickets and jobs. The calendars can be configured at a regional level so that distinct holiday lists are created for users working in different geographies.

With this new feature, one can define the holidays for the organization and regions. These will further reflect in the scheduler pages, as shown below. Note that one can still assign and schedule tickets to a any user and day, even on a holiday / leave. This gives the dispatcher the flexibility to assign, say, a priority ticket.

4. Leave and Holidays shown in the scheduler page

Another nifty feature launched in this release is the ability to view the holidays and leave for a particular user, on the scheduler page. The dispatcher will thus be able to make an informed choice on the assignment of a particular ticket or job based on the availability of the user for the particular day.

A holiday is represented on the Day or Week view scheduler with an off-white 24 shade in the particular cell. The holiday name will also be mentioned in the cell.

Both pending as well as approved leave is shown in the scheduler, either as a shaded cell (for day scheduler or as a shaded triangle icon on the top right corner of a particular cell (week scheduler)

Pending Leave  :  11  (week scheduler)     13  (day scheduler)

Approved Leave :  12  (week scheduler)    14  (day scheduler)

 

5. Enhancements to Recurring jobs feature

We have added a few more recurring job frequency options – users can now create recurring jobs at a quarterly and annual interval. This is apart from the existing recurring job frequencies: daily, weekly and monthly.

The quarterly and annual options would be useful for applications where periodic and annual maintenance jobs need to be configured, or say where there any periodic long-term visits that need to be scheduled.
