New feature: Calendar Perspective

Recently we published a post about the Chart Perspective and today, we are pleased to announce the  Calendar Perspective!


If your collection contains attributes with date and time, you can view them in a calendar. Don’t worry about the format - Lumeer recognizes lots of formats and doesn’t mind if the value is “01/04/2019” or “April 1, 2019 6pm” (in case your favourite date format is not supported, please let us know and we will make it work).


After switching the perspective, choose attributes that contain your event name and start date. You can also choose an attribute with an end date but this is optional as some types of data (e.g. orders) contain only one date.




Now that there are events displayed in the calendar, you can see their names by hovering over the dots:




And after clicking on the dot, you can see all details of the event and update it:




You can of course add a new event to the calendar without going back to the table or post-it perspective. Double-click on a date and a window for creating a new event appears:




When you return to the Post-it Perspective, the new event is there:




In the top-right corner, there are controls for switching between monthly, weekly and daily view:




Try Lumeer today and see your time data in the matching perspective!

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 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 secure are your data in Lumeer?

As more and more data is processed by computers, the question of data security has become inherent to all users. For business users it is even more important to know that their valuable data are secure.

Maybe you have heard about recent Intel’s L1 Terminal Fault vulnerability. We at Lumeer take security of your data very seriously, and that’s why we have cooperated with Digital Ocean to provide you protection against this threat.

Of course, we do a lot more for data security - encryption, redundancy and backup. Encryption means that when data is moving between computers, it is encoded in such way that only authorized parties (meaning you) can access it. Redundancy protects you against hard drive failure - if one drive fails, data is easily recovered because there is at least one other drive at the server that contains a copy. Backups go even further, they are stored in different geographical locations and are done periodically to assure you that even if there was a more serious damag…
