New features January-February 2018

PetalMD is pleased to announce its new features.

1. Ability to edit hours, annotations, and comments while adding a new shift. This allows notified members to receive the correct information to process.

 

2. In the personal calendar, when you change the default display settings, these new values ​​will now be your default view. Therefore, you won’t have to change the display settings each time you access your calendar.

 

3. Adding, editing and removing multiple shifts is also available to members with permissions to initiate changes for other members of the group. This feature is available with the Standard and Advanced plans. Here is the article describing the use of this module.

7. It will no longer be possible for scheduling group members, with permission to initiate transfers in post-publication, to create events for other scheduled members. If you want to find this permission, we have the delegation feature that allows you to create, edit and delete events for other members. If you want this feature, please ask our support team.

8. Members with permission to manage their group’s absences will now be able to administer them more efficiently with the multi-select feature. The new absence menu, in the monthly view of the group calendar, provides access to this feature. These features are available with the Standard and Advanced plans. Here is the article describing the use of this module.
