Calendar & Tasks

  1. Recurring Tasks/Events In Calendar

    Trying to schedule a weekly business meeting that happens at the same time every Friday and I do not have the option to have this as a recurring or repeating event.

  2. Send Customers Reminders for Appointments (Email, Text)

    We send all customers an email the day before their bid appointment to remind them that we need them at their house at a specific time. We also include a picture of the sales rep. The time is in JobNimbus as a task, their contact info is in the system. The sales rep is known, so it seems this could be automated.

  3. Change calendar color for subcontractors

    Similar to an idea listed, but would also love the ability to change the colors of sub-contractors on the calendar. I added a few of our crews as subs and they are very similar colors which are difficult to differentiate at a glance!

    We also have some long-standing colors associated with each crew so would really like to be able to carry that coding through to the calendar.

  4. Gantt Chart / Scheduling Dependencies

    Allow scheduling though gantt charts and/or dependencies.

    Calendar needs to have dependencies. We have 41 team members and doing 1,000's of jobs per year. When we get them all on the schedule then have a delay for any reason we have to manually move each and every job. Its getting near impossible to continue doing this that way. They need to be able to have dependencies so when one job moves a day then all the jobs scheduled after that move a day. Reference to "smartsheets".

    Ex. I assign the foreman jobs as they come in. That foreman looses 2…

  5. Reminder or Alert feature in Calendar

    We should be able to set reminders/alerts on scheduled items to notify the assignee(s) before the due date.

    Example: Remind me 15 minutes before scheduled appointment.

  6. Confirmation and Notification for appointments being moved on calendar - Undo Option

    If an appointment on the calendar gets moved, either accidentally or on purpose, there is no notification for it. So especially if it is accidental nobody knows that it was moved/changed. This happens A LOT.

  7. Weather Conditions on Calendar and Events

  8. Color code different item/object types on calendar

    to be able to make certain schedule items one color (example blue) and all repair schedule items another color (example red). It will make it easier to look at the calendar.

    Currently each item on the calendar is colored according to the assignee, but we always exploring new ideas and ways to better represent the information on the calendar.

    In the meantime, you can use icons in Task Type and Contact/Job/WO workflow settings to help distinguish between different types of items on the calendar.

    Thanks!

  9. Show Subtasks underneath Tasks in lists

    I think this would really simplify listings and reports. It would also make it easier in the calendar display to show subtasks listed under their parent tasks. For example:
    System construction (Task)
    task1 (subtask)
    task2 (subtask)
    Electrical construction (Task)
    elec task1 (subtask)
    elec task2 (subtask)

  10. Monthly Calendar View - present week at top

    It drives me crazy that I have to scroll down to get to the current week in my calendar rather than having the present week at the top of the page. I like to look at the calendar in the monthly view but I want this week to be the top week rather than the first week of the month.

  11. Work Orders on the Calendar Should Fade After Completion Like Tasks Do

    When a Task is completed, it becomes slightly faded out on the calendar to more easily differentiate between completed tasks and incomplete tasks. This would be a great feature to add to Work Orders. They would look normal until they were marked as "Complete" at which point they would fade slightly but keep their place on the calendar.

  12. Sort Tasks newest to oldest

    I do not need to see what I have accomplished I need to see new tasks as they come in, sorting tasks newest to oldest would be a great help.

  13. Provide the option to colour code tasks

    I run the business myself and when looking at my overall week it would be invaluable to be able to differentiate between tasks via colour. At the moment you only provide the function to colour code team members but like I said I am self employed and carry out all duties myself. Having a clear image of how my time is being spent would ensure I know I have made time for essential tasks... a small icon just isn't enough.

  14. Auto Create Tasks of Certain Task Types with Sub Tasks

    Long and short;
    Not only allow Jobnimbus to create different task types, but also the ability for the task types automatically created to have information pre-populated and automatically have sub tasks in the task.

    For example;
    Task is Send in XXX Document
    Sub Task; Fax document to xxx-xxxx
    Sub Task; Email Document to xxx@xxx.com

    It would also be nice if the task could not be closed until all sub tasks are completed.

  16. Make Calendar Inspector for Details Always Visible On Right Side

    The changes you made to the calander, you are not able to open the account directly from the red box, you have to click on it, then go to the right of the page to open the account.

    It would be better if you could just view the account from the red box. Only another click but still.
