  • OnTime Management Suite and Dispatch now run on .NET Framework 4.6, making for a better experience on Windows 7, 8, and 10.
  • All new support for extensions developed using the new OnTime SDK. Extensions can be created to perform custom tasks and are deeply integrated into OnTime. Using the OnTime SDK makes it possible to tightly integrate OnTime accounts with other software systems and sites. You’ll be able to create, read, and update data from most areas of an OnTime account.
  • OnTime SDK: The OnTime SDK provides a powerful application programming interface (API) that allows a developer to control many of the basic functions of an OnTime account. This makes it possible to control how data is read, created, and updated. Using this approach, a programmer can easily extend the functionality of OnTime desktop applications such as OnTime Management Suite and OnTime Dispatch. These extensions become part of the OnTime application and can offer deep integration with other software systems.
  • High resolution and high DPI support for 4K monitors. Icons, text, and other UI elements have been remastered and optimized for display on high-density screens. OnTime will look better than ever on such screens.
  • Custom row spacing: Set the space between rows to suit your taste. Choose narrow, normal, and wide. Find this setting under General Options > Personalization > Row spacing.
  • Ability to install and manage extensions from within OnTime Dispatch.
  • In addition to installing extensions through the Manage Extensions window, now double click an extension file to install.
  • Ability to track exporting of invoices via a custom extension. This appears as a new column with checkboxes under the Billing > Invoices view.

  • Addition of Autosize Columns command to the context menu of many lists within OnTime Management Suite.
  • Improved mapping within driver view of OnTime Dispatch.
  • Improvements to functions within the report designer.
  • Improved support for languages, including Arabic script. Rendering reports to PDF and other formats will benefit from this improvement.
