Client Commitment


Once your upgrade is complete, you will be asked to provide feedback in a survey, comparing this version to previous versions of Astra Schedule. Our goal is your satisfaction with the new features and functionality in Astra Schedule 8. If at any time in the upgrade process a concern or issue prevents you from selecting a 9 or 10 on our survey, please let your Account Executive know immediately so that they can share your feedback internally and we can prioritize a resolution.

Our Support Center has more information on the Astra Schedule 8 application. It also includes our Release Notes which highlight the new functionality, resolved issues, and known limitations.
