Add calendar into Missive. For meetings, tasks, invites, etc.
I almost switched my team over from Spark but without a calendar this is going to be a dealbreaker.
This is a basic to use this app if you do business. Many features are better than Spark, but without dealing with Calendar invites in a good organic way I can't use this app for more than 10 minutes...
In gmail there is a right pane where you can see your cal for the day, advance to other days too. That coupled with accept, decline invites in missive would be a great start.
Phase 2 for me would be to insert time availability into an email.
Phase 3 a full cal view. Although I am not sure how much I actually want this over the above two, much more important parts. I suppose the purpose of a full cal view would truly need to replace the need for me to go to another cal app. To do that, it would need to really have all the features of a cal app.
One potentially interesting thing would be to add due dates to emails/conversations. Then see those on a cal in missive.
Really REALLY would like to have the first two features (accept invites and tight panel view of the day)
Even just native handling of calendar invites would be great. Just recognizing calendar invites and showing what is around them on your calendar with the option to accept maybe decline. Spark does this really well.
@Konrad Kopczynski: I agree. In gmail there is a right pane where you can see your cal for the day, advance to other days too. That coupled with accept, decline invites in missive would be a great start.
+1 for calendar. As a business owner I spend half my life in email and a calendar app. This would be a huge benefit instead of constantly switching apps.
@Jonathan Cahill: I agree that switching is a pain. However, I often need to compare what is in my email vs what is in my cal. In that case switching is a good thing. Toggling back (with command tab) and forth gives you the ability to quickly compare. Having the cal in missive would mean you have to click in to cal, out of cal, to email, click back to cal, etc. Slow!
For the purposes of accepting invites sent via email a side panel view of the cal in missive would be perfect.
For full on calendar work, I'm not so sure a full view in missive would be more helpful than switching to another app for the reasons stated above.
I wouldn't mind having a GCal viewer built-in, but more important than that, I'd like to option to completely hide the calendar away if we choose not to use it. The calendar features in Missive competitors (Spark, Front, etc.) are part of the reason we chose NOT to stick with them, because it just got in the way.
Yes- or at least for dates and times to be recognised as links and to open in the users default calendar app..
@Alex Clavel: Yes this would be a great start.
hey everybody, I also wanted this so I built a custom integration that partially addresses the problem by enabling you to export dates and times to Google Calendar. it's not exactly a solution, just tangentially related, but check it out anyway! Feedback is always welcome! (PS. integrations only avail. to "Productive" plan users).
@Zach Hardesty: Sounds great Zach! Should there be a link to your integration?
@Rafael Masson: oops, yup! https://github.com/zachhardesty7/missive-gcal-export-integration
If full blown Calendar features may be complex to implement, would suggest "at least for a start", a way to visualize Google Apps like Calendar and Keep.
Mailbird provides all sorts of integration by just acting as a "inner" web browser, but still... very helpful and convenient.
I suggest the same...
not required IMO
