Create Christmas wishlist in Lumeer

We are all looking forward to Christmas and to time spent with our families. We probably don't want to think about business and about business data management application Lumeer then. 
But did you know you can use Lumeer even to create and share Christmas wishlist?

We start with creating a collection for the wishes. Fortunately, there are many colours and icons available and we can select appropriate ones:




We then add column names for everything that a wish should contain: who is going to receive the gift, what it should be and if someone already fulfilled it: 





There is one attribute which is marked bold - it is called displayed attribute and characterises whole record. By default, it is the first one. We think that the most important attribute of the wish is the wish, therefore we change it:





Too seriously looking table probably isn't the best perspective for Christmas wishes. We rather switch to post-it perspective:





And fill it with wishes:





We then save the view as Christmas wishlist:





Saved views are great, because you can easily get back to them from the main screen:





Now comes the best and most interesting part! What would be the wishlist for, if no one could see it? We click on Share view button and add people we would like to share the view with. (Please note that they were already added to the project - that's why Lumeer suggests their addresses.) We then email them the link and they will be able to see and collaborate on the wishlist - add new wishes or mark some of them as fulfilled. Log in to Lumeer and try it yourself!





Merry Christmas from Lumeer!

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 …
