    New Schedule Calendar
    The Schedule Calendar that has been redesigned to give you even more information about your logs. You’ll find more detailed indicators for which days have been exported, reconciled and more. You can configure the operation buttons you want to include, like Export to Automation, and the status badges you want to see on each day, like whether the log has been printed. You’ll even see information down to the hour level. We’ve also reconfigured the Calendar as a tab you can leave open.

    Schedule Clone Options
    The Schedule Clone feature contains new options that allow you to copy specific element types from the source to the destination hours. Only need the music elements? No problem. There are even options to append the clone elements to an hour or remove extra elements.

    Virtual Search Depths
    There is an edit helper button in Schedule Properties to assist you in setting the search depths. In Version 7, you’ll see a new option called Virtual Search Depth. This is a unique new development that we are very excited to introduce. With this option on, MusicMaster calculates and adjusts the Search Depth based on how difficult it is to find a song for each element. This means that MusicMaster may not have to search as deeply for some positions, resulting in a log that schedules much more quickly while still getting the results you expect.

    Pass Order Editing Shortcuts
    While in Schedule Properties, you’ll be able to edit the values in the pass order column to make it easier to put multiple categories in the same pass, as well as quickly copy and paste settings from one level to another.

    More History Snapshot Options
    History Snapshots can now be activated when a log is finished scheduling, when running Export to Automation and after Log Reconciliation. If you unschedule a log, you’ll also be able to remove any History Snapshots that cover the time period that is being unscheduled. We’ve also added a custom user hot-key option to create a History Snapshot of the date you are editing. Finally, while in the History Snapshot report, you’ll find a new print icon.
