Itinerary Generator BETA Testers

Post by MikeT » Sat Jul 02, 2016 9:40 pm

I have been working on a program called the “Isle Royale Itinerary Generator”. It generates an itinerary for going to the island based on user selections along with other items such as a trip package, a sample permit and a few other things. It allows you to create different itineraries, save them, then load them to compare various routes and dates. I also found that it is a great way to create previous trips and make a full library of all of my trips to the island.

It is a Microsoft program so sorry to all the MAC users.

I began working on it August of last year and it is finally at a point to begin Beta testing. I have a few Beta testers, but would like to get a few more.

I have tested it as best I can, but I know the program and it is pretty much automatic to me. I need some other eyes to find bugs and/or things that should be different.

I cannot give you anything for doing it except a free copy and I will credit you in the User's Manual.

To see the User's Manual explaining what the program does and to see screen shots, go to:
http://www.isleroyale.info/ig_online_support.html

Let me know if you are interested. I have to limit it to about 5 people for now so I can respond to emails regarding problems and suggestions.

Thanks!

I'm your huckleberry.

Just let me know if you still need the help and I'd be happy to test it.

I am new to the site, but would love to test if need be. Just starting to plan my trip for Labor Day week.

Hello all,
The program is officially released! A thank you to all the Beta testers for putting the program through its paces, They were: Nancy Tremblay, Rob Hook, John Ingersoll, John Heneghan and Richard Kaufman.

A major thank you goes to Tom Voigt for his extremely detailed testing of the program and providing great information and suggestions. He added a lot to the project and gave me confidence in the overall functions. When he said "it is solid", I finally felt confident in releasing it. Thanks Tom!

As part of the program release, I had to add it to the Isle Royale Info website. Before doing this, I wanted to re-vamp the website to deal with the all of the devices people now use. This has been on my mind for awhile, but it was a lot of work. So, finally, I bit the bullet, and created and coded isleroyale.info redesign #5. This revision should be friendly to any device from an I-phone, tablet and a large screen computer. I hope it is anyway. I have tested it at many screen sizes and done the best I could. PLEASE let me know via the "Contact Form" at the bottom of each page if something is wrong.
