An option to use 1 schedule, to copy 1 schedule, or have a 'default' schedule is a must surely.
I would like to see a Named Schedule System.
Each Named Schedule should have the following attributes:
It should be possible to cut and paste between Named Schedule and Time Blocks (even across Named Schedules).
Using this method we could, for example, have Winter and Summer Schedules that we could activate on a room by room basis. For example:
It's been in the Android Beta app for a few weeks at least
l bought into the tado° system assuming that multiple schedules would be a given in any smart heating control system. It's frustrating, to put it mildly, to discover that the software comes nowhere close to providing this basic functionality! I see that copy/paste schedule building has just been written into the Android app, which is another feature that I would have expected to find in the initial build.
The tado° hardware is so capable and pleasingly designed it slightly beggars belief that the software is so rudimentary in that respect. We can only hope that tado° make up for missing these opportunities that a smart system provides, by putting resources into developing this asap. Please!
I've edited the opening post. The newest update that is being rolled out today (6.24.0 for Android, similar for iOS) will enable this feature for half our customers. The other half will get it soon.
Hi @Rob (Tado admin)
While I'm happy to read your latest edit and new info regarding the "copy & paste" schedules.....I must point out something that currently doesn't add up with what you have indicated.
I received the Android App update ( 6.24.0 ) on Oct 25th ......App appears the same as before.......so I waited for the change to be implemented (as you suggested). However a further Android App update ( 6.25.0 ) was then applied to my phone.
Still not seeing the new "copy & paste" scheduling version.........but with the 6.25.0 update all my rooms "lost" the previous change which allowed me to "copy & paste" via a previous upgrade.......so my phone now has NO " copy & paste" functionality feature.....just as it was before Tado started to supply this "much requested" feature. So @Rob what was meant to occur with 6.25.0 ??🤔
@Rob .....just to mention that I also have the Android App on a Tablet on 6.24.0........still no upgrade to the latest " copy & paste" schedule change feature (not going to update the Tablet Android App till you have "sorted" this).
Many thanks in advance 🙏
@GrayDav4276 Hi - I have 6.25.0 with a c&p but have no idea whether or not it is different to an earlier c&p cos I never used it! Soz!
@GrayDav4276 Since last post I have lost mine!
It is as @cbd20 said:
Note that tado said that the feature will be available for half their customers initially and then roll out to all customers shortly. My guess therefore is it's a server side switch, so the app update has the feature but the server needs to allow you to access it.
Whether you have the function or not does not only depend on if you have the 6.23.0 (iOS), 6.24.0 (Android) or newer version of the app. It also depends on if you're in the random 50% subset that was picked by our developers. I believe they do this to test the difference in how people use the schedule.
FYI: my private tado° account also doesn't have the feature, yet... :(
Anyway, as far as I know it will be enabled for everyone 'soon'. I suspect in a week or so, but don't quote me on this.
I see there is some confusion.
There were 2 copy functions:
Number 2. is currently implemented for 50% of users.
Number 1. was implemented to 50% of users a week before. However, hardly anybody used it, so it was removed to keep the app 'clean'. Not sure where I wrote this before on the forum (maybe in another language?), but we have both advanced users (basically you guys) and people who are easily overwhelmed. Loading the app with hardly used features will annoy the novices, stripping the app of everything but the bare essential will annoy you. We strive to find a compromise that works for the biggest amount of customers. So, non-essential features that are not used much are replaced by more commonly used ones.
Assuming number 2 is actually used by customers, it will stay and will become available to all. I honestly don't expect it to disappear.
I've had some contact from Tado and I am happy to wait for my chance to be in the next update for the C & P schedule feature.👍
@Ben_UK If they could allow the creation of 'non-room Rooms' you could create them to your requirements and then just copy their schedules to real rooms as a temporary measure to fit your requirements?
@Rob please restore the "3 dots + menu" Copy&Paste feature. That's a killer feature and I guess this is the real implementatio users need.
Not all your customers have multiple rooms in the app, because a lot of users have the Smart thermostater only.
So the Copy&Paste beetween rooms make poor sense.
Bump. And I agree that there should be switch between easy (default) settings and advanced settings which will give more much needed functionalities eg. copying schedules, multiple profiles to not need to edit schedules everytime we have guests, doing home office etc. and many more useful more powerful settings.
I could copy and paste schedules last week, but now it's gone. This should be a core feature, nothing to do with advanced settings, just a standard function. Is Tado still in the 20th century?
