New Update – Version 5.2  – AVAILABLE NOW!!

What’s New in v5.2?

The main features of the v5.2 update relate to the new Pattern Set-Up page, as well as some other features and under-the-hood improvements and fixes too.

New Features include:-

  • New Pattern Set Up Page
  • Device Calendar Sync – you can now choose which app calendar is pushed to your device
  • Holiday Allowance can now be differently for each year
  • Holiday Allowance has a “carry forward” field and supports carrying over in-lieu in Holiday settings

New Pattern Set Up

We’ve changed the shift pattern set up page to include a new preview pane. This means you can see the shift pattern you choose before you add it to your calendar. You can also create your own personal shift pattern in this screen if you’ve got a more complex pattern. Just hit Preview to see how the pattern rotates forward!

Pattern Set Up

Restore Data Options

With the new v.5.2 we’ve added the ability to choose which backup you want to restore from! So if you make a mistake, you can always go back to a previous version and start again. Simply tap on the CONFIGURE option and then hit RESTORE and you can now choose which backup to use. Of course, you still have to remember to BACKUP YOUR DATA so that there are backups to choose from!

Calendar Sync

We’ve added a new option in Calendar Sync. You can now choose which of your shift calendars in My Shift Planner you want to sync to your device.

Annual Leave Carry-Over

You can now carry forward unused Annual Leave from previous years. You can also manage your annual leave for future years too.
