Calendar & Tasks

  1. Calendar widget

    The only reason we have to use Google calendar is because it's cumbersome to see your work schedule otherwise on mobile. It would be SUPER COOL to have a JN calendar/agenda widget which I could peg on my mobile home screen, similar to the Google calendar widget options.

  4. Search and sort Tasks

    Instead of paging through my tasks, it would be so nice to have a little search bar just for my task list so I could sort through different types of tasks. For example, all the upcoming permits I still need to order - I could search either by task type or by searching: Permit.

    I did try using the general search bar at the top of JobNimbus, but it pulled up ALL permit tasks (both complete and incomplete) - a total of almost 400 tasks. I tried adding "Incomplete" to the search but it pulled up 0 results.

    We agree that viewing tasks could be more helpful, so we’ll look into that.

    In the meantime, you could create a Task Report and use filters and sorting there to find tasks easier than on the built-in list. Give that a try!

    If you need help setting that up, please contact support@jobnimbus.com or call 855-964-6287.

  5. Ability to clearly delineate Sub-Tasks

    A sub-task is essentially a child task of the parent. So, I would think it's related item would be the task from which it was derived and should show up in reports as such.

    If a task has sub-tasks then fields like start and end date should reflect the earliest start date and latest end dates of all the sub-tasks. And the completion status of the parent task should be controlled by the sub-tasks. i.e. the parent task is only marked complete when all of the sub-tasks are complete. If you allow the user to set the parent task to…

  7. Calendar view separated into columns for each assignee (e.g. Outlook Calendar)

    Having the job nimbus calendar layout similar to Outlook. It would be much easier to read each worker's​ schedules instead of it all on one. See attached picture.

  8. Notes at the task level

    It would be very useful if you could create notes that were specific to a task. That would keep the notes specific with the task. You could still have the capability to add notes at the Job level as well

  12. Attach photo to a task

    We use Tasks as RFI's (request for information) and would like to be able to attach a photo to the task to better explain questions on a job. Can this be done?

    We’ve had this feature in the past but it caused too many issues as attachments would be added to tasks and then users would not know where to find those attachments.

    This problem compounded when the task was marked as “Completed”, which meant it hid away and then those attachments were hidden, too.

    We highly recommend you add these attachments to the parent Contact or Job the task is associated with and then reference that attachment from the task. It’s a few more taps, but it will help attachments to not get lost so easily.

    We’ll see what we can do to make the access to those attachments easier going forward.

  13. 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.

  14. the ability to see multiple calendars on the app

    Our previous CRM you could easily switch between calendars. This was helpful as an owner to check my sales persons calendar to see where they were going to be that day.

  15. an option to assign a trigger to a task and option to choose predefined tasks

    I love using automation under the settings but sometimes I need to create a task on a specific job that is triggered by a status change on that job or triggered by the completion of the task I am creating to trigger a new task. If I used automation, it would make this happen to all jobs that had a status change which would not work for all situations.

    For example, say I notice that a particular job needs to be billed but a different relationship was made with a customer to allow for billing to take place at a…

  16. the zip code should list before or after the name on the scheduled appointments calendar. Enables better scheduling

    the zip code should list before or after the name on the scheduled appointments calendar. Enables better scheduling by allowing the scheduler to see existing zip codes to efficiently route the next appointments.

  17. better calendar separation between employees

    we schedule many reps and the color difference is good but I wish each color could be to a certain side instead of being intermixed. Makes difficult to see who's available quickly compared to our previous calendar.

  18. Customizable Work Order titles in Calendar Views

    We don't refer to our jobs (not using "Jobs" by the way) by work orders, we do by street address or Contact name. It would be better in calendar views if we could have those displayed instead of "W.O. #XXXX".

  19. 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.

    We’re interested to know why you are printing out the calendar rather than using the calendar on the mobile app, giving you access to turn-by-turn directions, and the ability to call or text the customer directly from the app with just a tap?
