New Rack Rentals Scheduler
I wanted to comment on the new rack rentals scheduler that got introduced this week.
Pros: It's now easier to just get 1 hour if needed, instead of the 3 hours blocks.
Cons: Its difficult to have an overview on rack availability. Before it was very easy to see if there was an open slot since the system showed the entire week's view. Now I must manually enter a time-frame, and I only get to see that time frame (I dont get to see future times, like the next day's availability, or remainer of the week, etc).
I guess this is not an issue for the RS racks since INE probably has so many racks to rent, but for the SP or DC racks this is an inconvenience since most of the time everything is fully booked for the better part of the week. It now takes me a very long time to find an open spot since I don't have the full weeks visability anymore.
One "hack" is to just pick a week's worth of rack time and then the system will show you what's available...but this is very cumbersome to just get a slot in the SP/DC racks!
Does anyone else have this view?
