Holding Deck area in the scheduling area
This suggestion is for the scheduling area. In the construction business scheduled jobs can often get preempted by things such as: weather conditions when the sun rises, lack of availability on materials 1 hour before the job, equipment malfunctions or breakdowns, employees not showing up for work. All of these and probably many more could cause a quick and immediate “changing of horses in md-stream” to another job that is approved but perhaps not specifically on the schedule. I would like to see a “Holding DECK” where approved jobs can be sitting, waiting for scheduling, that could be viewed by the employees and even dragged onto the schedule, thereby giving them the wonderful additional features that go along with a job that is actually on the schedule. Notes, maps etc… In the construction industry these pre-empts can occur in the wee hours of the morning. Having the ability to see what is available for alternative actions for the day, instead of waiting for office personnel to put it on the schedule could be a huge savings in time and money.
Thanks for the specificity of this request, and for so clearly explaining the benefit of that feature. We’ll keep this under consideration, as other users vote and share their thoughts.
Maybe active/ non active selector on the jobs

While we have many projects on the go, not all need to be scheduled. Some of them require field service work (scheduling) and some are supply only where we use ClockShark to track time for different tasks. It would be great to have a list of up and coming projects or tasks to be scheduled. A due date or scheduled completion date for the project would be helpful and a great way to sort them as well.
Yeah, it would be nice to be able to create a temporary (non-active) weekly schedule without the employees being able to see it. This way we could lay out the schedule, and when we are ready, make it active so the employees can view it. Right now we use google calendar for our temp scheduling, then transfer the info over ot clockshark once it's confirmed. Would be nice if we could do that all within ClockShark.
