Repair Shop Calendar
Repair Shop Calendar is a software application designed to help technicians schedule their working hours and keep track of appointments. The tool can be used in repairing shops which deal with bicycles, cars, shoes, and home equipment.
The program makes use of a ribbon design for helping you hide or show several elements from/in the main window. A help manual is available in case you do not manage to set up the dedicated parameters on your own.
Store technicians in the database
Adding a new user in the database can be done by providing information about the name and phone number. In addition, you may assign an image avatar and a specific color which is used for displaying its work time on a calendar.
What’s more, you are allowed to view the work time for all technicians at the same time, switch between a vertical or horizontal timeline, as well as show only the current work week, week, month, or year. Aside from the calendar view, you can also check out all appointments using a table display mode and filter the information by date.
You can set up a new event by providing details about the name, phone number, start and end time, customer info (e.g. address, email, comments), technician, job details, problems, and recommendations. Plus, you may configure reminders and enter the charged fee.
Repair Shop Calendar gives you the possibility to import/export data from/to Outlook and iCalendar, sync info with Outlook, as well as export the information to XLS, XLSX, TXT, HTML, or XML file format. A built-in print designer is implemented for helping you fine-tune the details that you want to capture on paper, and you can preview data before printing it.
Extra tools and configuration settings
The application lets you store information about customers (name, phone number, and custom details), perform searches to identify customers in the database, and create automatic backups at a custom time (backups can be automatically deleted if they are older than a certain number of days).
Other important tweaks worth being mentioned enable you to set up holiday colors, configure audio reminders by importing custom files (WAV, MP3, MID) from your personal collection, change the time format, and run the utility at Windows startup. Last but not least, you can generate a work schedule and print data or export it to a file on your system.
All things considered, Repair Shop Calendar comes with several handy features for helping you manage working hours so they do not overlap and schedule different events. The intuitive design makes it suitable for rookies and professionals alike.
