Feature Incorporated: Tailor Event Field Names for Crew Manager

Post by admin » Wed Oct 02, 2019 11:03 am

The All-in-One Event Calendar by Time.ly which is part of Crew Manager is a general purpose calendar scheduling program with many features . Because it is general purpose, many of the field name descriptions are not specific to sailing and could be better if they were renamed. For example, the Location field is sometimes used to describe where a club might be hosting the event, yet Crew Manager assumes this is where the boat will be located for crew call. This causes confusion for the crew when event reminders are sent.

It is suggested that the All-in-One Event Calendar field descriptions be looked at and renamed to be more specific for Crew Manager use.
