Looking for feedback on early build beta release of a schedule creation database I'm working on. 

The basic idea is this:  Many industries uses 'repeating' schedules to accomplish projects. Every time they do a similar project, the same set of steps needs to occur and they can be stored in a template. The template contains all the info needed to build the schedule except a key date. When will the schedule begin or end. From there, the template can count forward or backward and create all the right tasks on the right dates, perfect every time.

My initial goal is NOT to provide an all-in-once scheduling database...but instead a tool to create schedules. I'll provide basic scheduling tools if they want to manage them within Schedule It, but I'm guessing most will want to export a generated schedule for use elsewhere.

So, in this very rough demo version, I have basic functionality in place to create templates, create jobs and build schedules. Schedules can be built forward or backward, and can included or exclude weekend days.

 

Any and all feedback is welcome. And if I've posted this is the wrong place, please point me to the correct place to post this sort of thing.

thanks!

Jeff

Jeff - I'm not sure this is the right place to post this because your question doesn't really relate to the unique requirements of creating a shrink-wrap solution.

I looked at your file and I think it looks good. It does look like a great start. I like how it works. A next step I would consider would be to assign and limit access by user type then maybe consider related notes that can be added to each task (assuming you want to go further in that direction.)

Hope it goes well for you.

      Hi Jeremiah,
      maybe this is a place we can pass Feedback to you about Carafe.FM?

      Improvement: UX confusing when search finds nothing
      Hi Jeremiah,
      I'm still goggling at Carafe ... and loving every minute of it! In general fantastic job on the UX of the whole app! Congrats!
      One thing is confusing ... when you search for something and nothing is found there is no feedback ... I then made the mistake of thinking the two little arrows to the right of the search box are for navigating the search term ... but clicking them doesn't work ... and then I realised, that they are for sorting ...
      Solution idea: Visual feedback
      It would be great if there was some kind of visual feedback to let you know that nothing has been found.
      Maybe a (very) quick and dirty fix could simply be a conditional format on the search box -> goes red when error 401 is active. (See image)
      Thanks
      MrWatson
      P.S. Have you considered hosting the Carafe.FM FileMaker files on GitHub?
      You have your other Carafe-code on GitHub, why not the FileMaker files, too?
      OK, so they are binary files, but on GitHub we could leverage the Issue-tracking tools, and make use of pull requests, etc.?

      Here is a demo of how easy portal sorting can be done in FM12. This demo uses the calculation that Tom Fitch provided a while ago with his portal sorting technique but one can use the PositionValue custom function as well.

      Most of my medium to heavy scripts are now performed on server. To give the users some feedback while they wait, I wanted a method that was simple and subtle. In this example I ;
      added  a popover button with '+' icon set the feedback message in the popover title bar formatted, sized and positioned the popover   added a OnObjectEnter script tigger to the popover in the script I add a PSoS step with Wait for completion set to 'On' last step of script is Close Popover
