Assigning multiple people to one task (I see this has been asked before)
I read through some of the threads on this subject. It really is frustrating to not have this feature. One of the primary reasons we started using smartsheets was to have a living work schedule for our employees at my constuction company. I would like to create reports that show where an employee is assigned on a given day for a given project. That way at any time the employee or manager can look and see where they are working.
For example I have a schedule item called "interior wall framing". I assign a duration of 9 working days. I would like to assign 2-3 workers to this task. I don't want the amount of workers assigned to necissarily dictate the duration. I just want a picture of where everyone is assigned so the whole team is on the same page.
Manually adding lines to the schedule just wont work. I would have to be editting way too much information everytime I want to make a small change. Also it confuses the customers who we share the schedule with so they can see how their project is going.
Is there any plans to add what I consider a very basic project management component to this platform? I really don't want to jump ship but the bottom line is that we are a growing company and I need features that your competitors offer that you do not.
