If I have a driver that requests time off, I'm still able to schedule them that day?! Is it possible to have my driver drop out of the list (or be grayed out) from the driver list for that day?
That seems like a good idea, and something we can look at adding. Can you elaborate a bit more? Should the driver still be schedulable, but the dispatcher is notified of a conflict, or are you wanting the driver completely unschedulable?
It would also be beneficial if there was a notification when the driver puts in the request whether by email or by a message center on the website. But thank you so much for hiding the driver when their requests are approved!
I like Brad's idea of a notification of scheduling a driver during requested time off. I also like the visual element of seeing the area "grayed out."
Thanks Jared! I have added this as a feature request to our development log. It is currently scheduled to be developed, but I cannot provide any details on a release date.
This feature was just released this evening. If the driver has the whole day off, he is not schedule-able. If he has part of the day off, the times he is unavailable will be listed below his name in the queue on the left. This will hopefully help bring better visibility to driver time off and ensuring dispatchers do not book the driver during those times.
I am greatly interested in hearing your feedback on this feature and if it has satisfied your needs.
