FoxOMS Keyboard Shortcuts

Introducing custom schedule hours, booking copy/paste and keyboard shortcuts

Last week was another busy week for us and we have just rolled out another feature packed update full of some of our most requested features!

Limit the hours shown on the schedule

Unless you are a 24/7 news studio, chances are you don’t have many bookings at 3am. So many of our customers don’t want to see a 24 hour day, mainly due to the excessive amount of whitespace created on the schedule.

With FoxOMS 2.1.12 you can now limit the hours shown so that bookings appear larger, more readable and with much less distracting white space.

You can adjust the custom hours in the schedule edit window, Admin -> Schedules -> (Pick a schedule to edit) -> Settings -> First Hour/ Last Hour.

Copy, Cut and Paste your bookings

Now you can quickly duplicate your bookings, using the new copy, cut and paste features. Simply use the standard CTRL + C (or ⌘+ C if your on a mac) to copy a selected booking, then use CTRL + V (or ⌘+ V) to paste the booking at your mouse pointer location.

Keyboard shortcuts speed up your scheduling

We haven’t just stopped at the copy/paste shortcuts, we’ve also implemented a whole set of other controls to make scheduling faster.

For example you can now hold down ALT whilst dragging a booking to a new day, and it will automatically snap to the previous days start time on the new day. We’ve also changed the behaviour so that when a multi resource booking is dragged to a new resource on the timeline view, the other resources won’t follow. To change back to the old behaviour, you can simply hold down the shift key and all resources will move as a group.
