To start, we have given the Planner a new look that shows the jobs to schedule on the right-hand side. This leaves more space for the graphic overview, making it easier to plan.
In the old Planner, jobs had to be planned for a specific time. If anything changed, all jobs had to be moved. With the new Job Planner, jobs can be scheduled in sequence. This means you register which jobs an employee has to execute and in which order. The drag-and-drop feature makes it very easy to make quick changes.
The Job Planner has various customisable options. For example, you can hide the colours and titles of shifts and choose to show or hide the weekend. Two additional calendar overviews have been added; the next five days and two weeks.
In many cases, a lot of the work is done by external people. You can now add external personnel with a supplier so you can then assign them work in the Job Planner. This gives you a full overview of all the work carried out by internal and external personnel.
We have also simplified registering leave. Planners can now assign leave in the planner with a simple right-click of the mouse.
It is now very easy for planners to register a remark, for example, an additional comment or an instruction, with a scheduled job.
After the planner has assigned the jobs to the employees, the work can be executed. Employees can log in to the Ultimo GO app and see which jobs have to be done and in which order and view the registered comments.
