DockYard was tasked by Netflix to create a customized web application that enables production and project managers to create, organize, and share high-level calendars for each phase of a production.
Traditionally, production coordinators responsible for creating high-level calendars constructed them on paper or in elaborate Excel spreadsheets. Piecemealing these complex calendars together was a tedious process, and the lack of streamlined and standardized processes made it difficult to assemble and share comprehensive timeline information across production departments.
DockYard created P|Calendar, a modern web application that enables production managers to add and modify production details, re-order and prioritize specific schedule details, and share calendars in various formats tailored to specific department needs. The app helps prevent scheduling overlaps, and shows timeline gaps and projected itineraries, allowing teams to prioritize tasks and manage time. Calendar enables studios to collect and centralize high-level production data and insights to inform budget, scheduling, and resourcing requirements for productions.
