Schedule all stops for same time duration RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am using MS S&T 2011.  It is my third version, I have been using it since the 2008 edition.  I am still waiting for MS to incorporate a feature that should be a basic element of this program.  I have written them about this and frankly, it's quite infuriating that they have not yet made this simple fix.

    My business causes me to make as many as 25-30 stops per day.  Most of these stops are about 15 mins long, but a few are 30 or 60 mins.  It is important for me to have a sense of where I will be at what time in the day, so I can set appts with clients if necessary.  The feature I want to see in MS S&T is a simple one:

    ALLOW USERS TO SET THE SAME DURATION TIME FOR ALL STOPS, THEN EDIT INDIVIDUAL STOPS AS NEEDED.  Without this, I have to set each stop individually, which is a GIANT pain in the butt.

    As I said, this seems to be such a simple feature to incorporate, and one that is necessary for professional users of MS S&T.  If this capability is in the program, I'm not seeing it, and I'd love it if someone could show mr where it is.

    Thanks!

  • Hi SJBliss,

    No, you are not overlooking it. Such feature is not presently present in the product. I've heard numerous users asking for it over the years though.

    Mr. Halvac:

    If your users are asking for this, WHY DON'T YOU ADD IT??  I am not a programmer, but this seems like an extremely simple feature to add.  PLEASE tell me you have made this change in a patch I can download somewhere.

  • Hi SJ, I'd love to, but I don't work for MSFT :-)

  • I note that Gladwin of Microsoft agreed more than three years ago over on Laptop GPS World that this would be a good idea, so I think we can conclude that it is on MSFT's "radar" for possible future implementation.

    I saw this.  That poor guy is as frustrated as I am, esp with some of the idiotic responses he got from people who can't read past one sentence.

    Who can I write to at MS S&T about this?  Don't they ever monitor these forums?
