We have a problem at the start of projects where we have to build a timeline. This is made of internal tasks and client facing tasks, like workshops.
To build that schedule we have to assemble the availability of multiple freelancers. This process is excruciating because of the amount of back and forth, confirming availability, then having to reconfirm when one person can’t make a key date. We want to move faster and wonder if there’s a way to tackle it faster or with less hassle using Coda.
Doodle solves this problem well for a single date, but not so well for a project with multiple dates. Typically a project may include 4-6 people, many of whom need to be available at the same time for meetings.
Anyone solved a similar problem in Coda or could point us in an interesting direction?
To summarise we want to:
- List project activities
- Propose some ideal dates
- Collect freelance availability (yes, no, maybe)
- Identify where there is a clash or not
- Confirm the final schedule with everyone
Any thoughts welcomed!
