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.
After we login into Lumeer, we create …

How to create a comprehensive overview of job postings

Managing information about two or three job postings at your company is easy and can be done even in some simple tool or spreadsheet. However, as the number of postings, candidates and other information grows, it becomes increasingly difficult not to get lost in the data and maintain a clear overview. There are candidates with their names, addresses and positions they are applying for. There are also job postings with salaries and managers who want to hire people for those positions. Those pieces of information are related to each other and we will show you how to effectively manage and view them with Lumeer. As Lumeer allows us to put similar data to collections, we will want to store information about candidates, job postings and company’s employees in separate collections. It’s the most intuitive way because candidates have similar attributes, e.g. name, address, phone number or the date they applied for a job at the company. On the other hand, postings have their names and salaries…

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…
