Schedule impact analyzer, scheduling improvements, redesigned meet cards
November 08, 2020
This is our weekly update, and we’d greatly appreciate any feedback.
Schedule impact analyzer. When scheduling is so effortless and making discussion urgent to have sooner just requires a few simple clicks, it could be easy to underestimate that action’s impact on the rest of the team. Now you can see what’s going to happen exactly to other meets (if anything) before saving your changes.
- Major scheduling algorithm improvements. Over the last couple of weeks, we’ve expanded our internal tooling to allow continuous tuning and improvement of scheduling algorithms. Now we can run simulations of months of product use in a matter of minutes. We’ve also identified scheduler KPIs that balance both predictability and agility to make the right decisions when tuning parameters and comparing different algorithm implementations. This week we were able to identify and address several significant shortcomings in the previous version that caused unjustified schedule fluctuations. We’ll continue improving and looking forward to hearing your feedback.
Redesigned meet cards. This week we’ve redesigned meet cards to improve their readability and make it more obvious when the next meet starts in the context of all-meets.
