Re: Cleaning up schedule when deleting/not-awarding a job

I think a delete option is also useful. We got a constant load of jobs being scheduled, but not being awarded finally. While we still keep them in NIM for documentation purposes (which bids we gave to which client for what kind of jobs) it would totally make sense to delete all associated items in s...

Re: actualization: how are ressources calculated in actuals

I think it should be linked to the schedule. In our case the coordination of rooms and resources are made via the schedule. It's similar to Farmer's Wife. You link artist, machine and room bookings there, which can be time reported as a whole by the artist. The downside with Farmer's Wife is, that y...

Re: actualization: how are ressources calculated in actuals

Got it. But I think that's quite a big workaround, as artists would need to report their times on the normal time report, then go in into timecards and a whole new interface to report the same amount of hours on the machine.

Re: actualization: how are ressources calculated in actuals

Ok. But I think that doesn't work for us, as we would block a lot of user licenses and artists need to log in into different account just for reporting. This case doesn't just apply to sound studios, but also for example for Flames, Grading, etc. Billing wise and for internal costs it's a huge diffe...

feature idea: link schedule bookings to project status

A lot of schedule work is do holds for projects which may come or – in some cases – doesn't come. It would be smart, if these 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc. hold bookings would be linked to the "active" status of the associated project. So you can simply assign a "NOT AWARDED" for the project and set activity ...

Re: actualization: how are ressources calculated in actuals

Cool. But our suggestion was more about time reports: the same artist can do work in a studio setup for 2K / day with clients or on his MacBook. Time report doesn't reflect the first case, so internal costs may be inappropriate, as it just takes the internal costs for the artist.

actualization: how are ressources calculated in actuals

We got some feedback from sound producing. Unlike picture, their costs are mainly made up by two parts: studio costs and artist hours. Actually the job actuals just refer to the hard of the employee. As far as we can see, there is no link to the ressources used. Ideally a time report should also inv...

design comment: location drop down filter for schedule

As we're deploying NIM to more locations now, there is one feedback regarding drop down filter in schedule coming back more often from our producers. As they select several locations via dropdown, they've expected the ressources and / or artists got filtered by locations. In fact it just addresses t...

feature request: information, which user did booking in schedule

Bookings in schedule should contain a information, which user did a booking, so you can easily find the producer for that project, in case you need to shift jobs, etc.
