How to make sure that every candidate is contacted on time

When we post a wonderful job offer, chances are that there will be many candidates applying – with the perfect one amongst them, we just don’t know who it is. Of course we want to contact him, but with so many candidates, an accidental error could happen and we wouldn‘t send everyone an invitation to interview. Lumeer will help us to add two more layers of protection against such an error.

Firstly, in table view, we want to highlight candidates that applied in, let’s say, last three days. This is done by adding a formatting rule on column with date of application. It says that when the date is older than three days, then the cell is coloured red and it’s easier to spot that row.
Also, there are other column settings: constraints, which determine type and format of data in the columns, and notifications, which we’ll explore later in the article.

The resulting table looks like following:

Secondly, we also want to get a notification which reminds us about applications that are more than two days old. Let’s set that notification to be send to Slack associated with our account. We can also add custom note so it is clear to everyone in Slack channel why the notification was sent.

And this is how it looks like when the notification is received in Slack:

That was just one example of how Lumeer can do for you in HR. Others include creating comprehensive overview of postings and candidates and displaying it in calendar or map view. There is much more that Lumeer can help you with, so your work is more efficient. If you were to choose one feature that would help you most, which would it be? Let us know via email or comments!



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. They are all there, but to access them means to spend precious minutes or even hours on searching the documents, every time. You wish to have everything in one place, with every question about current status or capacity answered within seconds and with just a few clicks. You want to easily make changes that are smoothly and automatically propagated to relevant people in the company. In this article, we will show you how to achieve this with Lumeer.

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 …
