Upgrading from queXS 1.11.0

queXS 1.11.0 Released

queXS 1.11.0 has been released today on Sourceforge

queXS now supports time slots for cases. This allows for time slots to be defined, and the call scheduler will make sure cases are assigned to be called equally over all timeslots. System sorting has been improved to work on a questionnaire by questionnaire basis which reduces down time for interviewers while the system sorts. The default timezone is now defined in the administrative menu instead of from the configuration file.
