A cleaner, simpler schedule? You choose

Toggle availability bar

While many of you love the availability bars – helping you to scan the schedule and find those 2 elusive hours of designer time so you can hit that Friday deadline – there are also those who can live without them … at least, some of the time.

Great news! We’ve added a toggle button which lets you hide them when you want a cleaner, less cluttered view and turn them back on when you’re scanning for free time. Whatever your preference, it’ll be remembered when you return. Hope you like it!

Hi, I'm Percy, one of the founders of Resource Guru. Please feel free to leave comments or get in touch - we'd love to hear from you.

    Yep, much better. However, sort out the drag-n-drop of items so we can put these in priority order for each day – that’s what missing from making RG the best. Other schedule systems have this.

    • Glad to hear you like the new toggle Timothy and thanks for your feedback :) We do have plans to be able to prioritise bookings in the future. Having said that, it will be difficult to display the priority directly in the schedule, so it would probably be in a popover that you click to reveal.

      Unfortunately, it’s not as simple as it first appears – some bookings span multiple days and we need to order the bookings to make the most efficient use of space – to avoid large gaps. So, the ordering rules are actually a little complicated. I won’t bore you with the details but, if you think about the game Tetris, you may get some idea.

      Anyway, thanks again for your feedback. Cheers, Andrew
