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.
End-User Training Videos
We have developed an overview video to highlight the differences between Version VII and Astra Schedule 8, as well as complementary training videos. Learn about the new and updated functionality, as well as revisit old functionality in the new UI here. You can also access our entire video training library.
Ad Astra Commitment
The Ad Astra team is happy to help answer any questions you have during the upgrade process. This includes your Account Team, Implementation Consultants, Client Success Managers and members of the Technical Support team.
