"Great Program"

What do you like about OpenSimSim?

I love that the program is FREE. It works great for our small staff. Easy to use, can send message to entire group.

What do you dislike about OpenSimSim?

Wish I could print a schedule without publishing it first. It would be easier to review on paper.

What have you been using it for and what problems did OpenSimSim solve?

Creating and publishing schedules for our staff. I did have one issue, I had it as a bookmark on my toolbar, but it would not work correctly. I called for help and they told me it had to be an icon on my desktop, not a bookmark so that it would refresh properly and now it works perfectly.

Reply from Bashar at OpenSimSim Inc:

Hi Amber, thanks a lot for your review and feedback. Good news is that it's already possible to print your schedule with unpublished shifts. This option is available on the "Print Schedule" screen under the Layout tab. The option is called "Include Unpublished Shifts". Happy scheduling!
