Life in the construction industry is fast moving and frequently changing, and trying to keep a schedule up to date and actually follow it is a job in itself. Things get delayed, issues arise, and people have to cancel. Unfortunately, that’s just part of the process, and every time it happens, you may find it affecting your entire upcoming schedule. Luckily, RaveBuild can help combat these issues and keep things running smoothly!
The first thing you will see when logging in to your RaveBuild account is your 7-Day Schedule, located on the right side of the page. This is exactly what it says it is, and gives you an idea of what tasks need to be accomplished throughout the upcoming week.
Each task is colour coded, appointments are coded in red, and scheduled tasks or follow-ups to be completed are coded blue. One fantastic feature of our schedule, is the ability to click on individual tasks, and mark them as “complete” as you finish each one. This easily helps you see if you are on track, or if you need to adjust your schedule.
Easily adjusting your schedule is another great feature within Rave. Let’s say you’re on track with a project, when all of a sudden it starts pouring rain on your job site. Suddenly, it’s too muddy to drive your machines and continue. It may even take an extra day or two just for the ground to be dry enough to work again! Just like that, you’re off schedule and need to adapt. Luckily, you can go into the RaveBuild app, and choose to adjust either your entire schedule, or only individual tasks to compensate for this delay. No more scratching your head trying to imagine how your adjusted schedule looks. Simply go into your calendar and adjust your tasks. The best part? Your crew, clients, and contractors can see changes pertaining to them, and they are instantly made aware of the change as soon as it is made. No need to make phone calls to everyone, simply make a few clicks, and everyone is notified. Saving you hours of running around in the process!
The calendar feature gives you a monthly view of your schedule, and allows you to manage your personal schedule rather than your whole crew’s. In your personal calendar, Rave allows you to set your own tasks to be completed and schedule appointments for your own viewing. If needed, you can simply make them visible so others will know that you’re not available at a certain time.
Having a synced calendar allows you to better manage not only your time, but your crew and contractors as well. With the click of a button, you save time that may have otherwise been spent making phone calls to update everyone on what is going on.
