Out with ye olde, in with the shiny new!

By - 17 Nov 2017

Sometimes it’s just easier to consign that old jalopy to the scrapyard and start anew. That’s exactly what we decided when we took a stab at fixing a long-standing feature (heh!) – our client/project selector in the Schedule. It had frustrated many a user in the past. When we first implemented the New Booking popover, it madeRead more …

I ain’t afraid of no ghost

By - 03 Nov 2017

So, how was your trick-or-treating? While not busy eating bite-sized chocolate treats, we’ve been hunting ghosts in our server logs. Peekaboo! We’re happy to report that ghosts don’t exist, but we’re still not sure what happened to the lonely orphaned row we found hiding in one of the tables. You’ll be glad to hear we’veRead more …

Rock a bye baby – Halloween update 🎃

By - 27 Oct 2017

The nights are closing in, witches and ghouls 😱 are abound but we’re not hunkering down. Here’s what we’ve done in the last two weeks: We’ve been made aware that using the pram as an icon signifying Other Downtime might be giving people the wrong impression, so we’ve swapped it out for a simple “Out!” sign.Read more …

More clarity with project codes

By - 19 Oct 2017

Some of you call them job numbers and others project codes. Whatever you call them, they’ve just arrived in Resource Guru to make your life a whole lot easier. One of our engineers suggested we announce the feature with some aerial skywriting – so there it is Klemen! ;) Now, when you look at yourRead more …

Updates to the API and Terms of Use

By - 13 Oct 2017

These past two weeks we’ve been wrapping up work on a feature that we think will make managing projects a lot easier. We’re writing up an announcement and will be deploying it very soon, but Andrew nixed my idea of hiring skywriters in major cities to celebrate the release. Such a party pooper. In theRead more …

Faster CDN delivery and UI improvements

By - 25 Sep 2017

We’ve been busy this week optimising the loading times for our landing and app pages – our shiny new cloud-based CDN is proving to be a veritable firehose when it comes to delivering high volume at great speed. Moving the remaining static assets from our own app server to Google’s CDN has sped up muchRead more …

Better visibility of events on your Dashboard

By - 08 Sep 2017

A small but noteworthy update. We’ve aligned event details on the Dashboard with those of the Schedule. When you click on a Dashboard event, you will now see the details popover in all its glory instead of its less flamboyant tooltip predecessor. A lot of you have been asking for this so I hope youRead more …

Improved API response times and network quality detection

By - 08 Sep 2017

We’ve been hard at work addressing some lingering issues regarding the performance of our API endpoints which mostly affected larger accounts when opening the Schedule. We’ve also noticed that our client-side network monitoring was picking up stray errors on the network that brought up false positives for some people. All in all, here’s this week’sRead more …

Network monitoring, security updates and more

  Another week bites the dust! This week is all about staying cool and hip. At least, that’s what the engineers tell themselves to feel better about another summer spent inside. 🏎 We’ve upgraded all our libraries to their latest version and made our servers that much more resilient. 👁 We’ve now got Sauron’s eye gazing overRead more …
