Allowing users/reporters "view only" Web UI access to see their dispatched items on the calendar would be a nice feature.
I dispatch thousands of items almost a year in advance. Users have a +60 day window prior to the due date where they can start prepping for the event(s). All events must be completed within the month they are due.
Some months are heavy, some months are light. The complexity of each event varies greatly depending on the size/type of equipment involved. All are legally required, so moving the dates to balance the load is not really an option. However, if the users could look ahead at their dispatches on the calendar, it would allow them to schedule support staff/equipment accordingly in order to better manage their work load.
