Hopefully this Request will make it to someone in Management of to Program Engineers:
I simply want to see "repeating" tasks and events to show up on my calendar DAILY so I can see them and plan my schedule accordingly in advance. Google Calendar/Outlook etc. do this, why? Because it only makes sense...that is, to almost everyone else in the business world except for Insightly...
Please enlighten me why Insightly doesn't do this? It makes no sense for Insightly to program the repeating tasks without being able to view them on the calendar daily/weekly/monthly. The current functionality (if you can call it that), prohibits the user from effectively planning their schedules in advance. Why? Because your repeating tasks don't show up on a daily basis IN ADVANCE! When meetings and tasks are planned in advance, it is CRITICAL for users to see each event AND task for each day of the week and month! This enables you to better schedule other events and tasks around those already in place. Is this not an issue for anyone else other than the business community I work within (consulting/legal/accounting etc.?) for users to know what events and tasks are ahead of you? Without being able to see each daily event and task (especially "repeated" events and tasks) on a daily/several days/weekly/monthly basis in ADVANCE makes absolutely no sense! Productively and strategically planning and scheduling your days/weeks/months in advance is not possible with how Insightly currently programs this functionality, and yet its SOOOO simple to fix! Ever wonder why Google Calendar/Outlook etc. don't program their calendars that way? Because it doesn't work! It's completely illogical. I must be missing something, but if not, then Insightly management and programmers really need to re-think their approach to better empower the users...their clients.
Imagine you apply the same logic to appointments...Unless you complete the appointment for the day, (and assuming that you have the same meetings with clients for the next week on a daily basis), the repeat task/event won't show up on the calendar for the next day/days etc., etc. etc.??? You've gotta be kidding me...That makes absolutely no sense. I come from international consulting firms, and if we proposed using a software solution that operated like that I would get fired, and I'm not kidding. Perhaps I need to look at a different solution where empowering users with practical/visible/strategic planning is both logical and taken seriously...
Thanks for listening, and I'm sad to say that Insightly greatly misses the mark on this simple planning capability, and if it's not fixed quickly, then I have to begin looking for an alternative solution, and let clients know they should do the same. Please accept my apology for being so bold, but this is such poor execution on Insightly's part.
