Daily schedule notifications straight to your inbox

daily schedule notifications

People who use Resource Guru are generally divided into two groups; managers who add project bookings (taskmasters) and doers who carry out the work (busy bees). Well we have great news for all of you :)

Busy bees

daily schedule

When busy bees sit down at their desk each day, coffee in hand, they will be instantly up to speed with their workload for the day. Schedules change frequently so people can still log into their dashboards to stay fully up to date but these emails will make it less likely that bookings get missed.

Taskmasters

booking notifications

When taskmasters sit down at their desk each day, whip in hand, they will also be up to speed with all their bookings including those for any busy bees they’ve scheduled. They will also be reminded of any booking clashes that need resolving.

utilization reports

As a bonus, team utilization for recent weeks will be displayed for those who have access to reports.

Never be blindsided by someone’s time off again

time off events

We’ve all been there. You suddenly discover that one of your teammates has disappeared on vacation – and you really needed them this week. Aaagghh – why didn’t I know! Well, those sort of panic attacks are now a thing of the past because the new email will tell you about any time off, well in advance. Time to breathe easy again :)

    Great news! I don’t suppose an email trigger for bookings that are cancelled is in the works? While this is great, we are constantly canceling and shifting engagements so it would be great to give notice specifically when a booking is deleted

    • Hi Jessica, glad to hear you like the new emails! :) Yes, that type of notification is also on our roadmap for the future but I’m afraid we don’t have a date for it at the moment. Thanks for your feedback.

    Great feature, but… Would have been nice to schedule this mail. It now arrives closely after midnight while I would like to be warned at the end of the previous business day…

    • Thanks for the feedback Raf. We’ll definitely consider that for future enhancements.

    I would be interested in the email feature. Like most if not all of the users who are responsible for scheduling, the details change all the time and tasks are moved to accommodate more or less important tasks. an email to the resource with the change is invaluable

    • Thanks for the feedback Mark – it’s definitely on our roadmap :)
