    Not to worry, but a feature request all the same Even if it was just each of those links put along the top in the yellow bar.

    Also - btw - can we change the Week 1 text? We only have 1 week - but it would be useful to customise the text there for general info - eg if a special date is coming up or something?

    Love the new "New Booking" slide in..

    Currently it has:
    Year
    Subject
    User To Book For
    Make Static

    I'd quite like a:
    Repeat for [ ] number of fortnights
    Repeat for [ ] number of half/terms

    With a summary of what you are proposing to book appearing below:

    [X] 01/03/14 Day 1 Period 4 - Book Free
    [X] 15/03/14 Day 1 Period 4 - Book Free
    [ ] 29/03/14 Day 1 Period 4 - Clash
    [X] 15/04/14 Day 1 Period 4 - Book Free

    This functionality could even extend to staff to allow them to book a slot on a recurring basis..
    So i can book the same slot for 4 weeks (not quite a static, but often we get short term recurrances)

    Sorry, i'm aware that i like to ask "BIG"!

    That sounds like a great idea.

    Is it possible to add something like Two factor authentication into HAP??
    something like an open source two factor authentication and uses TOTP codes and HOTP google-authenticator - Two-step verification - Google Project Hosting
    which then users could download an smartphone app which produces the codes

    I will look into the 2 factor auth.

    It would be this sort of thing though:

    1. User logs onto HAP+
    2. User then asks for a code to use on public devices
    3. User stores this somehow, or has it emailed to them
    4. User can then use that code to log in, which will expire after a set time

    What do people think of this?

    Hi,

    I would like to use the help desk for myself (IT) and the site manager (BSS). Would it be possibe to ask for a feature to add a drop down in the help desk so that users can say what department or person they would like help from and that would then email the correct user that was allocated with the job that needs doing?

    Hi @Paul-K I will have to look into this, it's a bit complicated to do.

    You could do something with your email system, set a rule up that if a subject has a certain word in it "BSS" then forward to Site Manager. Just a case of getting staff to put that in the subject line.

    Hmm, how would this work with the booking week in advanced limit?

    I will look into it though

    I tend to set the "weeks in advance" quite high anyway: 6 weeks.. Most teachers know what they want to achieve for the next half term.. so i think it's fair enough in our place.. i do limit the bookings per week too, so the scope for abuse is quite low.

    Thanks for looking into it Nick It will be very popular with the teachers!

    Hi @nickbro - In the booking system.

    Would it be possible for Admins to have the ability to make a certain date within a Static Booking FREE again. not just override it, but make it available for people to book... this could be useful if there was a field-trip of an exam, leaving the timetabled lesson not on.

    Also
    Would it be possible to add some sort of validation, as some of our teachers have managed to break the booking system by entering the same booking twice.... I assume that they are using the "back button" and then thinking that their booking wasn't saved, but this breakes the bookining system completely untill I manually remove the offending booking.

    Cheers, Calwyn.

    1. How about a utility that shifts the bookings %n% number of days starting at %date%? If the school closes due to weather (or some other reason), we'd have to manually change the dates for each future booking. I thought about writing a PowerShell script to directly edit the XML file, but if it was integrated in the BookingSystem control panel for librarians to do themselves, that'd be even better.

    2. Alternating days vs. alternating weeks would be nice too! We do Day A and Day B (rather than Week A and Week B) at our high school, and Day 1-5 at our elementary schools which don't necessarily line up with the day of the week (M-F). There could be a year setup utility where you tag dates (I'd be happy with just an XML file). To do Week 1 and Week 2, you just tag all 5 days as 1 and the next 5 days as 2. To do Day A and B, you'd just tag the individual days. There could be special tags for HOLIDAY or CLOSED.

    Sorry if I'm just being dim, but where would i find a changelog for the differences between 9.5 and 9.6? Could do with one being more prominent on the codeplex site really. (I don't like to upgrade until i know what's changed )
