R&R 5.4 Available Now

30th Sep 2019

R&R 5.4 is now available and includes the introduction of R&Rs Resource State API.

Resource State API

The major feature of this build is the introduction of the first API in R&R which reveals User booking and Resource states. The API has various uses such as allowing customers to create their own availability screens or develop their own software to push bookings in R&R to third party systems.

No Fining for Non-Working Days

Customers had requested changes to how fines are calculated so that non-working days were no longer included. We have therefore introduced this functionality with the addition of a registry key. Once implemented, (and as long as the specific days are set as non-working days in R&R) R&R will ignore those days in its fine calculations.

Pending Authorisation

Again, due to customer feedback, R&R will now show the number of bookings pending authorisation next to the authorisation link in the admin interface.

R&R 5.3 Available Now

13th Aug 2019

R&R 5.3 is now available and introduces two enhancements based on customer feedback.

Mandatory Booking Description

Due to customer requests we have introduced the ability to set the booking description as a mandatory field.

If this option is selected R&R is set to require a minimum of six characters to be entered in the booking description field in order to complete the booking. You can also change the minimum number of characters required via a registry key addition.

Deny Partial Issue and Return of Bundles

We have also introduced the option to deny the partial issue or return of a bundle of equipment. To allow for flexibility we have made it possible to deny a partial issue but allow a partial return and vice versa.

R&R 5.2 Available Now

18th Jul 2019

We are delighted to announce that version 5.2 of our Resource Booking solution, R&R, is now available and introduces several enhancements based on customer requests.

Limit Predefined Bundle by Model:

Based on customer requests we have introduced a new option under the 'Predefined Bundle' settings. When using Models with your Resource Type it is now possible to limit the bundle to the specific model for which it is compatible, and prevent it being presented for those it is not. (Shown above)

Add Multiple Resource Types to Predefined Bundles:

To offer more flexibility when creating suggested bundles, it is now possible in R&R 5.2 to add the same Resource Type multiple times when creating a Predefined Bundle.

Edit Suggested Bundles:

We have introduced the ability to edit a suggested bundle when adding to a booking to include additional items.

Close Matches when using Wizard or Mobile:

In order to avoid confusion when making a booking via the Wizard or Mobile interfaces we have made it mandatory to click the Show Close Matches button in order to display the closely matched items.

Scanning Barcodes in Advanced Searches:

When using the Advanced Search option it was not possible to use a handheld barcode scanner to search for an item when using the search screen. This has now been improved to support the use of the field being populated by a reader.

R&R 5.1 Available Now

29th Mar 2019

ITS are delighted to announce the release of version 5.1 of our Resource Booking solution, R&R.

This release includes several enhancements concerning general speed and performance and importing resources.

Import resources from file:

Locations, Departments and Resource Types are still added in the usual way but when adding resources we have introduced a new feature to allow new resources to be added via a CSV file. This functionality supports the addition of individual resources and pools.

Issues and Return screen cursors now default to relevant fields:

When accessing the Issue screen the cursor is now focused on the 'Booked For' field and on the Return screen it is now focused on the 'Barcode' field.

Enhanced grid and dialog loading:

To assist customers with many resources in R&R we have enhanced the grid loading and dialog loading.

Enhanced user searching:

As user searching is crucial when making bookings for users we have enhanced the performance in this area by reducing the number of requests.

Speed improvements:

We have implemented general speed improvements throughout R&R.

This release also expands on the Suggested Resource Bundle concept introduced last year by allowing the administrator to drill down further when setting up a suggested resource bundle and filter or limit additional Resource Types by models.
