Diary "fit to page"

Could you develop a button or similar to make the diary "fit to page" so we could do a one click to make the whole diary for any given day on the screen at any one time.

Our main reception screens are big enough to fit everything however, all other screens in the practice are smaller. When planning future rosters etc (which is done away from the reception desk) it is frustrating to have to manually change each practitioner's column size to make the diary fit on the screen plus any time that we change the view eg from whole practice to individual practitioner the column size reverts back to the default sizing which then carries over if we go back to the whole practice diary and we have to resize again.

Whilst I am thinking about it, it would also be handy to be able to hide the side column with the calendar etc at times too.

I love this idea, we can have up to 20 Practitioners on our screen for anyone day and to be able to fit them across with the click of a button would be amazing!
Great suggestion!!!

I also love the idea, we have similar issues managing a large number of practitioners in the diary across multiple screen sizes in the clinic.

Hi team,

Just wondering if there is any development  with this idea or if not, is there a way to "lock" the column widths if we change them so they stay the same each time we open Frontdesk please.

We are having to scroll left and right even on our large reception screens now to be able to see all practitioners

Hi Rachel,

The system currently remembers the column size for each individual column. Our thinking was that this was sufficient, however we are happy to consider your request for a future development.

We are now working on some high priority items, so please note this may not be for some time.

When you change column sizes it stays for that practitioner on that day but doesn't follow through on other days or weeks and doesn't change any of the other practitioners.

We have two diarys so we can unclick which locations we are in or have both open.
I have set up rules so practitioners are only seen on the day they work, as there are 20 practitioners across two locations but all working different days and times.

Is there a way to reduce size on the day you are view just while you are viewing it?
Is there a way to reduce the whole diary across locations to fit the screen for the day?  ( although some days I might only have 6 practitioners on and say other days 10)  As some are at both locations I would have them on the diary twice - clinic and studio as they are across both locations on the same day.

I know I have not answered questions but given you some other options to think about to make it work better.
