What's new in Version 11

We've made significant changes to the look and feel of The Scheduler. All the forms have undergone a complete overhaul. We take our user feedback seriously and changed those most annoying issues and implemented the most frequently requested features.  

Gone is the Microsoft Windows XP display structure. We've implemented user selected styles designed for the latest Windows versions and we've even provided the option to change your home screen image to your favourite photo. Review the User Preferences and User Images sections to set up your desired environment. All the screen shots in this documentation have been taken with the "Tablet Dark" style implemented.

Quick Start Tutorial: We've implemented bite sized sections that won't overwhelm the new user. Walk before you run. Quick Start Tutorial.

We've revamped displaying folder and client information. Entry and editing fields is more intuitive. Review the Folder Information and Client Information sections to see what's new!

EFT tasks: We've put all things associated with managing EFT files on a single panel. The tab progression on the panel is EFT Preparation, EFT Notifications and EFT Reconciliation.

Allow a user defined transmit file name or let The Scheduler generate a name. See the EFT File Information to set your preference.

Scheduled backups: Most of our users do not have sophisticated IT backup procedures in place. We've had many a panic call when a user's hard drive has crashed or been the victim of a virus attack... and no backup. We've expanded our original built in backup routine to default to creating a backup after each EFT file has been prepared. Review the User Preferences section and select your desired backup parameters.  

Updated Help System: We've replaced the old Windows 98 HTML help system with a new eBook format. Updates are easier for The Scheduler to implement and there will be no more problems with network setups not being able to display the old help setup. The new layout is more intuitive, the help eBook is smaller, and we think it just looks a whole lot better.
