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 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 track and manage your suppliers

Whether it is construction, manufacturing or digital services, supplier management appears in every business field. You need to track your suppliers and orders either for materials, tools or office supplies, and it can surely become a mess. In this article, we will show you how Lumeer will help you store and see all the information in one place.

We will use a chemical laboratory as a model example, but don’t worry, you will see that the supplier management principles are the same across all industries. We identified three basic entities: suppliers, orders and inventory items. Let’s create a collection for each one of them (if it’s the first time you are creating a collection, First time in Lumeer article can help you with that):



Then we fill the collection with all the items that we obtain from our suppliers:



And also with our suppliers:



Now we have two tables, but they don’t give us a complete picture, because they are missing the information about which supplier to contact when ordering…

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 …
