We need to be able to schedule the following:
- Regular (weekly, monthly, etc.) service of known duration on some 50 properties.
- Longer construction/installation type jobs (several days to weeks)
- Irregular items.
The ideal software would allow us to create "jobs" with the properties of duration and resource requirement. Then it would allow us to create "Crews" (resources) from various employees.
Finally it would allow us to drag and drop jobs onto the calendar and crews onto various jobs - and monitor for conflicts.
It would also need to be able to indicate which resources are still available for deployment for any given time-frame and which jobs have not been scheduled on a calendar.
Ideally it would permit recurring jobs.
