Shift Scheduler NEWShttp://www.sscheduler.com/?p=blogNews about the Shift Scheduler App (Symbian and WP8). Have your shifts always by you!mobile apps2011-2016 - © Adriano. http://ovi.petrucci.ch/sscheduler/ss1.png Shift Scheduler NEWS http://www.sscheduler.com/?p=blogVersion 5.2http://www.sscheduler.com/?p=blog&item=58 Solved some bugs in different addons

This Windows Phone 8.1 (Silverlight) app is still alive!
Ok, I will never port this to Windows 10 because this means other 4 years of work and I am busy with my "increased" family and with other projects (eSheep 64bit, the sheep that walks over the desktop).

But here a new version!
Changelog:

  • Solved a bug on statistics: If you had a night shift, all hours was counted on the first day. Now, if you works from 22:00 to 4:00 the first 2 hours are on the first day and the other 4 hours on the next day.
  • Solved a bug with the combo: if you selected "entire year" and entered again, the checkbox was not checked but it repeated it for the entire year.
  • Solved a bug on the personalized images: If you selected HD-Image, it wasn`t possible to use the personalized images. Now it works like expected
  • Added 2 arrows on the bottom. A lot of users, doesn`t know that there was more than 5 shifts to select. And the most users can`t find the combo button :/ Hope it is more easy now :)

Shift Scheduler Viewer 3.7http://www.sscheduler.com/?p=blog&item=57 Solved a Sync-bug

There was a bug in the Windows 10 Viewer. It didn`t updated the shifts on year 2017 (because the app updated only 1 year, not 2).

With this update the synchronisation will happen also for the next year.

Additionally, there are also some more color-settings for the calendar.

Thank you for your feedbacks and enjoy the viewer :)

Shift Scheduler Viewerhttp://www.sscheduler.com/?p=blog&item=56 Important update for the viewer

I got one of the first comments in the store for this app (after 4 years!!!!).
So I begun to write a new app for the viewer, a UWP-Universal Windows Platform app. So it works on Windows 10, Windows 10 Mobile and also on Hololens!
I am new to this world, and so I need some time to develop it. To re-write the main application, it will take years, so I am not sure I will ever update it. Also because the only countries who pay for the addons are Italy, Germany, UK and Australia.

In this article you can see how the viewer will be. The nice thing is that the users added on the phone will automatically added also on the desktop version of the app.

It is in development-phase, so if you want try it, write me a mail with your microsoft-email and I will add you to the "insider" list. It would be nice to get some testers, even if this app is only an extension.

Good news! Microsoft released the insider build 14327 and solved the bug with WP8-apps!

Now you can start the app again. If you can`t see your purchased addons, don`t worry! It is another Windows bug. Open the addon page and click on the purchased addon. The store will be opened to purchase the addon, at this point Microsoft will detect that the addon is already paid and you will get it back without pay another time!

To ask sorry for this inconvenience, I will give you 10 codes for the "ALARM" addon. If you open the link you will be able to use this addon for free for 6 months. After this time, the addon will be removed automatically.

Attention: Insider usershttp://www.sscheduler.com/?p=blog&item=54 This application does not work on some insider versions

If you are in the Windows Insider program, this application can hang on startup!

Some users reported that the application will not load anymore if you install an insider Windows version!


Please do not install this build:

Insider Build 14295

reported from a Lumia 650.


I will see if I can do something.


In the last months I didn`t had much time, and I will not have it in the future... I got my first child: so I have a lot to do for my real life and doesn`t have much time for the virtual life anymore :P Sorry for it!

Version 5.0http://www.sscheduler.com/?p=blog&item=53 Addons extended and prepared for HD images

I know, there is not much news on this app. This app is become too professional and as personal project too big!

I do my best to make this app always better, so I implemented some new functions in this version:
Version 5.0:

  • Using new Windows libraries
  • Shows up to 120 appointments each month (before it was 60)
  • Beta: HD-image - image preview of the next version
  • COMBO: multi-insert added. Click many time on one shift to add the shift X-times
  • STATISTICS: personalize statistics view: see how many hours/shift types you had in weeks or days, not only months.
  • Title resized, so I have more space for the important things
  • Month day moved up. A lot of you will like it, a lot of you will give me a bad vote :(


COMBO



If you open your COMBO page, you can press on the last checkbox. Once you return to the calendar page, press many times on a shift to increase the count. This will work until you exit from the app or you uncheck this option in the COMBO.

STATISTICS



Many asked me to add this function. Now you can give a block (say 1 week or 10 days) and see how many shifts you had or how many hours you worked on this block. You need to try to understand it :P

HD IMAGES



Prepare for a new, better view of your calendar! I am working on images with alpha. This images will be 16 times better than the currents ones and add the possibility to add transparency. Because my images are never accepted by a lot of people, I will give you the possibility to create a package and other people will be able to vote. The package with the most votes, will be used in the next release. Stay tuned for more infos... They will come, when I am ready to launch this new feature!

Windows 10 app updatedhttp://www.sscheduler.com/?p=blog&item=52 Updated app for Win8.1 and Win10

The Tile had a wrong size on Windows 10.
I updated the app solving also a bug letting crash the app on startup. Hope the viewer works fine now on Windows 8.1 and Windows 10!

This viewer works only if a friend of you or yourself have the SYNC-Addon!

If you have Windows 10, you can download the app with this link:
https://www.microsoft.com/store/apps/9wzdncrfj8vq

On Windows 8.1:

Version 4.8http://www.sscheduler.com/?p=blog&item=51 Better stability improvement for some devices

I got a mail from Microsoft because the app is not compliant:

10.8.4
The app description does not include information about the types of in-app purchases offered and the range of prices.


So, an update was neccessary to update the description in the store.

This release will not give new functionality. It will only inmprove the stability. For example by leaving the app or for the Tile.

What`s next?


I am working on HD images for the shifts. I don`t know if I should use 80x80 pixels images or 160x160 pixels images (currently I am using 40x40 pixels images).

Version 4.7http://www.sscheduler.com/?p=blog&item=50 Another little update

With this version, you will be able to see more years when you zoom out. You have to press a button because get the appointments is a long process.

I updated also the info page. Now you can check for updates if you press the button at the end of the page.

Once you vote the app (you have to vote for each update) the menu item will disappear until the next time you receive an update. It is important for me to see you feedback on the store :P

At least, I hope I was able to solve an annoying bug let crashing the app if you try to open it (the store report 200 crashes each day).

Power up your phone calendarhttp://www.sscheduler.com/?p=blog&item=49 integrate your shifts in your phone calendar and add holidays

I get always requests about share the shifts from shift scheduler to the phone calendar.
It is a hard work, because an app can`t create appointments on the phone calendar. It need to create a new calendar on the web and the phone calendar has to link with this web calendar.
I am trying something new. If you want to see your shifts in your phone calendar, you need the sync-addon. Once you have the sync-addon and created a calendar ID, you can try this tool (for test-purpose only!) and see your shifts in your phone calendar:
Calendar ID
(ID of the shared calendar):
Friends Password
(leave empty if no password was set):
Calendar Name
(used for Outlook calendar name):

This will give you the possibility to subscribe a new calendar in your live account.

Want more???

What about a holiday calendar?
Check this to add holidays for Germany:
http://icalshare.com/calendars/5343
or from Italy:
http://icalshare.com/calendars/40
Or from england:
http://icalshare.com/calendars/49
If you like it, I can create a "hack" in the next version, so you will see this holiday calendar with a RED day number also on the calendar for example.
Without feedbacks, I will not create this update ;)
