This evening we updated the WorshipPlanning.com site with a couple small, but helpful changes. But before I get to those, I wanted to provide some information for iPhone/iPod users that have upgraded their OS to version 4.2. It seems there is a problem with the current version of the WP app and this new OS version. Users were reporting that they could not get their assignments or even get logged in to the app correctly. We have resolved the issue (it was very minor) and submitted the update to Apple’s App Store review team. Our hope is that approval will be forthcoming within a few days.
The two updates we made to the website are both on the People Scheduling page. First, we’ve added a “drop indicator” that pops up as you drag a person, role, or template over the service column. Hopefully this will make it very clear what action will take place when you are about to schedule someone to serve. We’ve create a short video of how this works. Feel free to check it out.
The second update is helpful for those that schedule people for master and linked services. No longer will you have to click “yes” or “no” to tell WP you want the assignment applied to the linked service also. WP will remember your setting, and you can change it at any time in your Teams Settings tab.
