Announcing Dime.Scheduler 2021.2.0

ยท 3 min read

The bidirectional Exchange connector is finally here with the release of Dime.Scheduler 2021.2.0, which also comes with a few new features and improvements.

Bidirectional Exchange connectorโ€‹

We had to sacrifice the few remaining hairs on our developers' heads but it was all worth the stress because we are so excited about the two-way traffic between Dime.Scheduler and Microsoft Exchange. Just a few months ago, we launched the one-way Exchange connector using Office 365. With this release, the circle is complete: appointments not only go back to Exchange but modifications are also synchronized back to Dime.Scheduler and the other connected systems such as Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.

Most of our time was spent on the development of the Exchange connector but we also added the following capabilities:

Improvements and bug fixesโ€‹

In addition to the traditional performance and stability improvements, the following bugs have been fixed:

  • Double dependency tooltip in Gantt chart
  • Localize clock tooltip in the planning board
  • Improved display of AM/PM time formatting in the planning board
  • Add validation checks to the naming conventions of Azure Virtual Machines and DNS
  • Update job that has a source app that is longer than 20 characters
  • Apply pivot label fields at component startup
  • Run services with an account that has a user or password that contains a $ character

Upgrade guideโ€‹

This is a major update ๐Ÿš€. To update to Dime.Scheduler 2021.2.0, follow the steps as documented in the upgrade guide carefully.

Support updateโ€‹

To reduce the lead time of resolving tickets, we have further simplified the support process. The installation center has a diagnostics tool that fetches all the logs and compresses it for you so you only have to worry about raising the ticket, including the diagnostics file and providing a comprehensive explanation of the issue.

Check out the support article for the updated process ๐Ÿ‘‹.

What's nextโ€‹

We will announce an update of our roadmap shortly. Stay tuned and keep an eye on our LinkedIn page.

On Thursday May 6th 4 PM CET, we will host a webinar to showcase the latest features of Dime.Scheduler, including the bidirectional Exchange connector and some of the new capabilities that are about to released in Dime.Scheduler 2021.3.0 which is expected to land in May.
