With the 2016.Q1 release we introduce a number of new features and added performance enhancements.
We refer to the product release notes which is included in the installation package for all the details but already want to share some topics:
- Multi-select of Open Tasks: the user can now select multiple tasks in the Open Task list and:
- Drag & drop all selected tasks onto a resource
- Get total travel time, distance and route
- Travel time and distance calculation: when selecting 2 or more tasks and/or planned appointments the route, travel time and distance are shown on the map. This is ideal to know the estimated travel between a planned appointment and 1 or more open tasks, or to know the total travel for a resource based on the planned appointments for example
- Resource selection: a new grid allows the user to manually select the resources to be shown on the plan board. This is complimentary to the already existing filter capabilities
We are also excited to announce the upcoming release of a standard SAP B1 connector for Dime.Scheduler.
As with all our standard connectors (MS-Dynamics NAV & CRM) it features a flexible framework to easily create custom solutions. The SAP B1 connector also supports the SAP HANA platform.
The final release date and full details will be announced soon.

“m|ES-service® in conjunction with Dime.Scheduler is one of the few on the market available WFM (work force management systems) which is capable to plan and manage orders fully dynamic in almost real time.
The connector to Dime.Scheduler allows to use this professional planning tool in conjunction with a fully mobile solution.
m|ES-service is a field service management solution which is easy-to-use, fully equipped and quickly introduced. With m|ES-service decisions can be made at the latest possible moment which is enabled through the unique real time adaptive logistics engine. While the planning and scheduling process is not linear but as an ongoing process in a closed regime (closed loop control system), any changes in the circuit – new requests as well as continuously rising service rapport – are immediately processed and used for decisions about the next planning of a resource in real time. This includes not only the actual service or sales force, but also the logistic processes for materials, tools and transportation”.
