We’re finding difficulties resolving artist bookings with the workload. Some things our team think quite important:
a) The crew planning app should allow for crew Pencils and, other confirmed bookings (at other studios). the vacation/ project is fine, but needs to go further in our view.
b) move interoperability between crew planning / project timeline / tasks so the three calenders can display data from another (per what already happens on the ‘vacation’ overlay on tasks, but for all phases.
c) clearer delineation of milestones (with always present text) for milestones in tasks view. the slim bar and hover is great, but Production can only read one milestone at a time. Perhaps exposing the project timeline at the top of the tasks list as a separate filed would be useful.
d) the ability to view the calendar as a traditional grid calendar with milestones and artist tasks to make things more clear to the artists.
e) enhanced filtering options on project timeline / crew planning. My crew planning for example should quickly allow me to filter to all artists in my team. at the moment it only allows me to ‘sort’. i’d love to see such things as ‘filter by compositors;’ ‘filter by project’ ‘filter by seniority’ ‘filter by custome fields’
f) for the love of God, please fix the project timeline’s vertical sizing. everything gets compressed wheren there’s more than 5-6 lines in there.
I have plenety of examples on our site if you’d care to discuss in deeper detail, and if there’s a beta that we could get on for testing then please let me know as we’d be interested!
