How to view and edit your data in calendar

In a post about creating a clear overview of job postings we gained a lot of insights into our data, but we only displayed it as a table. For some kinds of information, table is the most comprehensive way how to look at them, however, there are other data for which different perspective is more suitable.

Switching perspective is quickly done by clicking on dropdown box that shows us all available perspectives.



There is only one column with date in our table. Lumeer automatically detects it and display data in the calendar based on that column. If there were more such columns, he would of course ask us which one do we want to use.


All dates which contain a record are highlighted with green colour. After clicking on a particular date, we can see all job postings that were posted on that day, along with a hiring manager who created the posting.
But looking at calendar for the whole year may not provide enough detail for us, so we switch from yearly to monthly view.


With more detail, we also see names of hiring managers in the calendar. However, this information is not very useful for us – we would rather want to see postings than managers, and it is possible by reversing direction of the link between Employees and Postings collections.


Want to see more detail? No problem, just resize calendar columns. What’s more, the calendar perspective is not just a static view. You can directly change your data by manipulating the perspective, e.g. drag&drop records from one day to another.


Lumeer understands that there is no universal view of data and that different data require different perspectives to be more clear and understandable. Have a look at using map perspective or pivot table.

How to track tasks for employees?

When multiple employees work on multiple projects, even in a small company it can easily happen that you lose track of who is doing what and on which project. However, it is very important to have quick and easy access to this kind information: you want to know progress on a project to plan for the future release, or you want to see if employees have some spare capacity or are too overwhelmed by the workload. 
Maybe you feel that all that information is being lost in a pile of spreadsheets and emails.

How to effectively search and publish townhall meeting's resolutions

In previous posts, we created invitation to a townhall meeting and added minutes and comments. The collections are now filled with data and we will show you how to search those data and easily export them into publishable form.

After every townhall meeting, the municipality has to publish the resolutions which were approved during the meeting. To achieve that, we first search for the data we need by using Lumeer’s search box. We adjust the filters, hit enter and immediately see all resolutions from particular meeting.

We see the result of the search in table perspective, but we switch it to smart document perspective and produce the list of resolutions in a similar way that we have created the invitation.



Of course, we can choose how we want to export the document. Do we want to print it? Then we use export to PDF. Do we want to publish it on municipality’s website? We can put the PDF there, or, even simpler, we just put there the link to document which points directly to Lumeer, where t…

How do you search for your data in company IS?

“I need to look up that information.” This situation comes countless number of times every day and it’s not something people are used to look forward to. Looking for a particular piece of information often becomes a stressful and time-consuming procedure with uncertain result. You need to go through a number of systems – e.g. email, wiki, document server and other sources which are independent and not connected in any way. What’s more, in every of these sources, you have to be very concrete about what and where are you going to search for. Even if the data is stored in a typical information system or a spreadsheet, you need to specify the table and only after that you can get to the right report and finally see the data in the context.

But what can you do in the case you are not so sure about what exactly you are looking for and where it is stored? How can you do it without spending precious time trying to work out all the details?

Lumeer provides a solution to all these problems with …
