The latest in-app update to DayBack adds support for a location field along with some nice improvements to the editing experience. (Instructions for adding location to your copy of DayBack for FileMaker can be found here: updating to DayBack 9.81)
You can now enter a location for your appointments right into DayBack and quickly check the accuracy of your entry on a small map. Here is what the location field looks like before you’ve entered a location:
Hit “enter” after typing your location to see it on the map:
Specific addresses also work. Click “open map” in the lower right to open the location in Google maps and get directions.
Expanding Text Fields
Now it’s easier to write long notes in DayBack as the title, description, and location fields in the calendar will expand as you type into them:
This update makes it easier to manage large numbers of resources (people, trucks, rooms, etc.). The resources available when you’re editing an event are the same filtered list of resources you’re showing in the calendar. So if you have dozens of resources, but have filtered to only show a few of them, you’ll only see those filtered resources when you edit the event. (And of course, you can still drag an event to a new resource to reschedule it.)
