Announcing Dime.Scheduler 2021.2.0

Bidirectional Exchange connector


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.

šŸ‘‰ Read all about the Exchange connector here.

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

  • Add resource pin to map and route on selection
  • Fixed task times

Improvements and bug fixes

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 guide

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

Support update

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 šŸ‘‹.

What's next

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.
