Automated PDF Schedule Generator


The Automated PDF Schedule Generator (APSG) is a separate program that automatically 'prints' specified  graphical and text schedules as pdf's to a specified location.  It is an easy way to make schedules available on a web server for non-ResSched users or the general public.  The APSG is only available with the Corporate Edition.

 

For its control windows and PDF file names, the APSG uses ResSched terms (Booking, Resource, Client, Category) rather than the labels you may have entered in ResSched System Settings.  Your labels are used in the PDF schedules themselves, however.  The PDF file name is created from the Report Type, Entity and Period Repeat.

 

The APSG must be kept running to generate the pdf's.
