Product Visual Jobs Scheduler
Version 1.2
Build 1.2.0.0
Date 30 August 2019

 

List of enhancements

  • The planning line quantity can now be calculated and distributed taking into account the resources’ capacity. Since this is a company-wide setting, we implemented a new dialog “VJS Company Settings” where “Calculate Job Planning Line Duration” has to be ticked for activating the feature.
  • Days without capacity are taken into account when rescheduling job planning lines.
  • The feature “Plan successors” was renamed to “Schedule successors” and was also added to the context menu of the job planning lines.
  • The menu item “NETRONIC promoted” was renamed to “NETRONIC VJS”.

List of fixed bugs

  • Links got lost during interactions.
  • When moving job planning lines by the job tasks, the links sometimes weren’t taken into account.
  • The length of the field “Description” in the “Jobs” table was adjusted to the length in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central,

Build 1.1.0.0
Date 24 July 2019

 

List of enhancements

  • A status window pops up during long calculations.
  • A new context menu enables creating links between job planning lines.
    • Possible relations:
      • Start-start (the successor must not start before the predecessor)
      • End-start
    • The new feature “Plan successors” which can be found as new entry in the menu ribbon, ensures that linked operations are processed without temporal offset. This applies for the selected node and all its successors.
    • Violated link orders are indicated by red link lines

List of fixed bugs

  • Starting the setup of the Visual Jobs Scheduler triggered an error message when the Visual Jobs Scheduler hadn’t been opened by the same user before
