Hello All,

I'm working with a roofing company that has 2 in house crews and sub contracts work out to various crews depending on the complexity and location of the job. I can't seem to find any great calendar applications that everyone can easily access and I can integrate into Pipedrive via Zapier or Integromat. Anyone have any thoughts? I'm all for using 1 less cloud application and sticking with a Google shared calendar but, this is tough as well. How does everyone else manage home construction or similar jobs with so many crews needing information?

    What issues are you currently facing within Google Calendar?

    Ultimately any of the calendar tools should be able to manage this [Google Calendar, Outlook, iCloud, etc]

    Thanks @Mike van der Valk / @Boris Tsibelman -

    Looking for something a little more customized or simplified that accounts for the construction world. For example, internal teams all have access to a google calendar which we can create a team calendar no problem but, external are not as versed with this style and permissions are needed. We don't want a sub crew seeing a customer job that's for another sub. More importantly, weather delays cause a delay for all customers (the first and every other in line). I'd like something that can easily move all jobs accounting for the gaps or flex time. Ultimately if I can Integromat connect it into Pipedrive, I can automate a sms update to the customer about delays or any important information. Finally, there needs to be a provision for crews that calculates how many squares they can get done per day. Some crews work faster than others and the materials guy shouldn't have to remember this. 

    Honestly, I thought it'd be solved with a google shared calendar as well but, every business I know in the industry keeps going back to a large white board in the shop to keep updated daily. If you have a more robust way to use google calendar or a couple Zaps / integromat scenarios that connect and automate it a bit, I'd love to hear. I'm stumped and find that Acculynx and Job Nimbus (or all the industry specific CRMs) don't have a good solution. 

    Appreciate your thoughts all the same!
