Schedule Interpreter form can now be used without showing the source language. For providers operating within a single country or single source language, form can be configured to display target language only. This simplifies the selection and speeds up scheduling process. In the same update release, new option to lock end time of the assignment has been added. The option eliminates the need for interpreter to enter end time, and should be used when time scheduled is always being used exactly at the estimated length.
In preparation for platform migration, ScheduleInterpreter® deployed new main server. For next 18 months this server will continue to work side-by-side with the old one. The migration process will be done gradually, with new features being built around new technology and new server. To simplify certification and compliance, ScheduleInterpreter.com, Inc. will continue to utilize its current cloud service providers.
At 2:00 am US Central Time, Otava, cloud provider ScheduleInterpreter® is using for the platform and infrastructure, restarted all servers. The reason for this incident is investigated. Previously, ScheduleInterpreter servers were operating for nearly two years without restarts. This is not related to the server migration. New server configuration is still pending and restart forced new server to go into non-responsive state. This affected the following platform services: Journal, Maps, Vendor Route and Bundle 2.0.

In response to the rising number of prescheduled remote interpreting assignments and integration with various third-party platforms, ScheduleInterpreter® updated the accounting bot, responsible for invoices our subscribers receive every month. Starting March 2023, billing will be completed with an update of each assignment meta data. This will help to trace the invoice number and date of billing. New bot enables issuance of credits and debits for the assignments that changed their status later in time. The first affected month is February 2023.
EDI is a form of electronic transactions, completed between ScheduleInterpreter® and third party platforms. This format is often used for Medicaid and Medicare billing processes. It also offers unit-based pricing model, as a replacement of minute- or hour-based model. This update allows to configure billing structure for the customers that accept invoices via EDI. Rates can be configured for on-site and remote services and offer language specific charges in global or exclusive lists. Option is available immediately in ACCOUNT CENTER under RATES AND POLICIES.
ScheduleInterpreter® Journal received next update and can now be viewed in extended or compact layout. Compact layout is designed to remove visual components and focus on details, while preserving full functionality. Another update includes details of modifications completed by interpreter after submitting initial details or in the REVIEW CENTER by the QA personnel. All changes are available without making any additional configuration changes.
Recruitment center update restores interpreter details functionality. This feature was affected by the roll out of the new maps. Improvements made to the zip code and language search options. Overall performance improvements made to allow larger lists of vendors from around the world to be shown.
When CONSUMER CENTER is activated and interpreter is assigned to a request, editing such request with special conditions may lock out all languages in the selected field. If such request is edited or cloned, the target language is either removed or is not populated. This update helps to resolve the issue, by enforcing validation of all requirements and providing extra layer for data accuracy verification. In case any part is missing or is not correctly submitted, the lockout will be removed.
