At Workbooks we enhance our products based on customer feedback. We actively encourage customers to suggest new ideas and provide tools for customers to vote on the features they would most like to see in the product. You can visit the ideas section to see the current list.
We typically run a 3-4 month development cycle and this agile approach to development allows us to respond quickly to market demands and to feedback from our customers.
The improvements currently in engineering are:
Calendar improvements and Google Calendar Sync
We are implementing a number of enhancements relating to activities and calendars. When engineering started this feature was the most requested on the Workbooks ideas forum.
- All-day meetings
- Show lists of date-related records in a calendar view, as an alternative to using a standard 'Grid' view.
- My Calendar - users can add multiple sets of data to be shown in the same calendar window.
- Recurring Appointments
- Invitations to meetings
- Synchronisation with Google Calendar
Mobile Client release 2
Engineering has started on the next release of the Mobile Client. It will be published on Apple and Android app stores and support offline working. The client will adapt to page layouts configured on the server. In addition to running as an 'app' it will continue to be available on the web in online mode. Windows Phone and Blackberry touch devices will be supported for the web version only.
New Outlook Connector version (April 2014)
We will shortly be delivering support for 64-bit Outlook, Outlook 2013, and the latest Exchange Server 2013 update. In addition we will be adding live 'look-up' of records when relating items with records within Workbooks.
