    Default Scheduling App

    Hi guys

    just wondering what people are using these days

    I have started using serviceM8 recently and am pretty happy with it.

    It will link with MYOB (my accounting Pack) , Xero and quickbooks

    First 20 jobs are free each month then 50c a job

    downside is only works for Iphones


    Previously was using google calender but thought I needed something a bit different, Its easy for others on my team to see whats coming up as well.

    Hey just thought I'd pop my head back in here and see if anyone's still around and noticed this thread. I've actually been working on building and testing a browser based scheduling app of my own. Everything else I've tried pretty much sucked. And I think we need a good solid app that is specific to lawnies. I've been using/testing it myself for about a year and it works pretty well for my purposes. I'll probably have a live demo up in a couple of weeks if anyone is interested in checking it out.

    It's web based, meaning you access it in a web browser. Works on any device or operating system.

    Cool. I thought I had it ready to get a few people testing it last week. But I found a few little things that needed improving. I mean it works well enough for me personally. But I want to get it right.

    Also not sure if I should be discussing it here. I should talk to the site admin before I go into too much detail

    Interested, tried Yardbooks but its only really an invoicing program and I couldn't see the sense in putting the information into Yardbooks and then putting it into MYOB. Also can't be bothered fiddling around with my phone, currently use Google Calendar but I print it out in schedule format 3 days at a time, find it much quicker to use pen and paper.

    When NASA started sending men into space they found that their pens didn't work, so NASA spent millions of dollars developing a biro that would work upside down and in freezing temperatures. To this day the Russians still take pencils.

    Ok for anyone that's interested in giving this a try, I have a demo up here https://fairdinkumwebsites.com.au/ozlawnmandemo/. You will have to click the login/register button to begin with. Then follow the getting started link under the "oz lawn man" menu....I need to update and complete the documentation. But there should be enough there to figure things out I hope.

    Just be aware though that it is for testing purposes only at the moment while I continue working on and improving things. And you may very well encounter bugs and or errors.
    I'd really appreciate it if any errors are reported via the bug report form in the app. Any other feedback is also greatly appreciated.

    Ok, so after a bit of looking/playing, I've found you need to add your own property type.
    I'll have another beer and play some more lol, i'll just refrain from reporting bugs until tomorrow

    Yeah. Sorry about the confusion. I'll have to make the documentation a bit clearer.
