GroundsOpsStaff-2ed New Features


Compared to the Old GroundsOpsStaff, this is what’s new in GroundsOpsStaff-2ed:


Updated for APPA Operational Guidelines for Educational Facilities, Grounds Second Edition: This is a major enhancement giving user instant access to the new APPA grounds area matrices. GroundsOpsStaff-2ed will read all Old GroundsOpsStaff files; however, the Old GroundsOpsStaff cannot read GroundsOpsStaff-2ed files.


NetEnabled with ShareAware: GroundsOpsStaff-2ed is Network File Sharing Enabled (NetEnabled) with ShareAware which means that multiple users can share the same data and schedule files on a shared network drive without conflict. This is a major enhancement allowing organizations to store all inventory and schedule files in a single location for all users. Inventory files are marked for Read-Only and schedule files are locked out when opened by another user. This prevents users from overwriting the files while other users have them open, but allowing Read-Only access to the inventory file by all other users. There is always a ShareAware button which allows you to see who is using what file in the network folder. See the NetEnabled section later the User Manual for instructions on how to operate GroundsOpsStaff-2ed in a network file sharing environment.


Improved Configuration Form and Configuration What-If Features: The Configuration Form has been improved and made accessible from more worksheet within GroundsOpsStaff-2ed. This allows you to change configuration local variables and immediately see the impact of the change in more worksheets of the application. This greatly improves your capability to do what-if analysis on your Inventory.


MultiMonitor Enabled: GroundsOpsStaff-2ed is now Multiple-Monitor Enabled, which mean you can have multiple monitors connected to your computer and switch CleanOpStaff-3ed from monitor to monitor with just the click of a button. With improved Drag-And-Pin behavior for all the tools, you can now have full view of your data on monitor while dragging and pinning the tool onto your second monitor. See the Multiple-Monitor Enabled section in the User Manual for instructions on how to operate GroundsOpsStaff-2ed with multiple or dual monitors.


Tool Movement and Pinning Improvements: To help you get maximum visibility of your worksheets and the many tools at the same time a Pin Button has been added to most of the tools. This allows you to move the tool around on the screen and pin the tool to the position that provide you maximum visibility of your worksheet and tools. This is especially useful with the new monitor-switching feature. In some instances, you get a much improved view of your worksheet by pinning the tool to the screen of a different monitor.


justDoNext Import Wizard Improvement: The justDoNext Import Wizard automatic flow has been improved with updated interactive instructions. The basic flow for the justDoNext Import Wizard upgrade is the same. However, the interactive instructions that you see when importing data have been updated and improve.
