We have some amazing ideas and a packed roadmap of new features ahead. In the past year we have added a lot of features and will continue to do so this year. We appreciate your patience and support.
I think the majority of folks understand the complexity of coding, and therefore really appreciate the addition of new features. I know I do! Thank you to the team for the continued work to improve an already great tool.

With that said, I hope the development team can understand our frustration not only with the delay, but most importantly (at least for me), the absence of a stated target date. For a year weíve been told itís on the list, in the works, etc. And now youíre saying that ďIn the past year we have added a lot of features...Ē, but date pinning isnít one of them, and we still have no idea of when we can expect it. Iím working on our 5-month trip for 2019 and (sadly) am not even using RV Trip Wizard.

So while itís great to hear that date pinning is currently being integrated, can you give us any idea of when this feature might be deployed? It would be incredibly helpful to know if it is days, weeks, months, or longer.

Thank you!

We appreciate your support and enthusiasm for RV Trip Wizard. I am going to be candid and honest with you so you and others can do what best fits your needs.

We are a small team of people working on making RV Trip Wizard the best product it can be. We have a group of passionate people trying their best and often times have had people working 70+ hour weeks to deliver value to our customers. There are features, enhancements, and bug fixes that we try to prioritize based upon the investment required, the number of people requesting the enhancement, and what we think people will want. Sometimes there are features that we would like to deliver earlier but other priorities trump those features. Other times, in order to deliver that feature, there's items that have to be done before it to make it technically possible.

With that said, the unwritten rule is that we don't announce features before they are released. We do this because we don't want to mislead a person saying that X functionality is coming in a month and it doesn't get delivered because of whatever reason. For date pinning stops, we haven't set an expectation (as far as I'm aware), except that we want to do it and we are actively working on it. We are working on other features simultaneously as well and will deliver them along with date pinning when its ready and extensive testing has been completed.

I believe that many people will be excited to see the new enhancements as they are released throughout this year. Please know that we are working as hard as we can to deliver enhancements, bug fixes, etc as soon as we can. We appreciate your support.

Thanks for this detailed response. I understand, and will look forward to the updates. And I hope the updates can be completed without anyone working 70-hour work weeks!

...
We appreciate your support.
Having been a software developer I can appreciate where you are coming from. Not everyone can imagine the complexity of developing a program that runs on all the different browsers and works within the constraints of Google Maps as well.

Thanks for all your efforts.

That would be a great feature as many time we had to do a year ahead reservation for a popular place and then try to "fake" stops and days while the rest of the trip gets planned.

Another feature for long trips would be a "Done" check box or something similar.

I am on a 43 stop trip and we have finished the first two pages of the trip. Paging down to see the next stops every time is a pain.

Tmac - We do have a feature that is coming soon to alleviate your middle of 43 stop concern. I think you'll be happy with the approach.

It's in the works. Per the previous posts, we can't say exactly when but it's very high priority and we are actively working on it.

I know this feature sounds easy but it's more complex than you think. Mostly because the system was designed one way and not for this scenario. That means some re-architecting stuff which is a lot of work.
