I’m about 8 weeks thru creating a full project management / CRM / task / booking system for my small business. Its been a journey, and a tonne of folk have helped me along the way here - many thanks!
Today was actually a momentous day, as we moved the first part of the docs over to real use - just contacts, clients and a CRM.
Project management is close to working (its been a complex puzzle to solve!) but my producer here just threw a massive curve ball at me!
She was going through what I’d done with studio bookings - and she is very bothered by the calendar for the bookings.
She is used to looking at a full width full month calendar - currently inside notion.
We have 3 studios, and each has its own cal (and we also have an “all studios” view.
I’ve just cut out one of the days here with info thats not sensitive to show what she sees.
Unfortunately, everything I’ve tried with coda calendars has come up short.
My only small hack to date has been concatenating a few rows - but even then its almost impossible to display anything meaningful given the thin width of each day in either month or week view (which is where we spend most of our time!)
Now has anyone here come up with interesting hacks to allow a better cal view? Does anyone know if there’s any plans by coda to improve the options? I was quite taken back by our producers response, but essentially she thinks its currently un-workable for her… which would throw a HUGE spanner in the works given the time investment in moving from notion to coda. (Coda has WAAAAY more to offer us in terms of other tools for the database / tables which I think far outweigh the negatives, but I’m also not the one using the system day to day!)
I would love to come up with something. Perhaps it will mean syncing to google cal? But this seems not ideal and fraught with issues as well…
The roll over info is great - but I kinda need all that info viewable in the calendar at a glance.
Any thoughts / options are very very much appreciated.
My current best thought is just using cards - but its very hard for the producer to see when we are busy / not with that view…so its not great.
