Keeping a team running, flowing and working the way they are designed to can sometimes be trickier than it appears. 

With multiple boards, tasks lists, due dates, users, streams of consciousness, and coffee-fuelled tangents to capture and organize, this part often becomes the real challenge over the project itself. 

But with the flexible project management platform, it makes it a whole lot easier.

So, what exactly can Make help you do?

Make scenarios for

There is a lot of cool stuff Make can help you do.

To start, check this one out. This tutorial shows you how you can use Make to easily sync two date columns to update dates for pulses on 

But, here we thought we would take it a step further.

1. Update a “due status” column based on another status column

So, let’s say you have multiple pulses on a board and you want to organize multiple different due dates by done, overdue, upcoming, and due today. 

Make allows you to use routers that help you to branch out your bundles of data to do multiple actions like this at the same time. 

In the scenario below, you can easily organize the due dates for your pulses. It will update a “Due Status” column based on another status column and the pulse’s due date. 

This will show you if a pulse is done, upcoming, due today, or overdue.

To create this scenario, simply set up the search module, List pulses on the board or in the group. It will then pass on all the pulses in the board or group through a router that will divide the pulses from “Done” and “Not Done” by using a filter

If “Done” it will update the status to “Done”. If “Not Done”, it will then go through another router and filter between “Due Today”, “Overdue”, or “Upcoming”. 

Set the scenario to run every morning and have an up-to-date list of pulses that are finished, overdue, or still in the upcoming pile. 

2. Send updates to Slack 

Following these actions, you could take the scenario one step further and send those that have pulses due today or have overdue pulses a friendly reminder through Slack. 

Simply add the Slack module, Create a message after the modules, and update a status column’s value with the filter “Due Today” and with the filter “Overdue”.

To get your feet wet with this scenario, you can start with a compact version of this here

As you can see, Make makes it easy to accomplish your tasks, so you can continue to work how you were meant to!
