This month we’ve added a nifty feature that makes it easier to manage your customer data however you like. Now, as well as being able to import CSV (comma separated values) lists of customer information into your Appointedd account for use in the CRM suite, you can also export customers added to Appointedd as a CSV file.
If you think coordinating meetings and calls in one timezone is complicated enough, imagine doing it across the world. We talk to Sara Hörberg about her business and how Appointedd has made it simple to navigate the summer time to winter time transition.
The challenge of working across timezones is basically twofold (even if it can feel like a millionfold). On the one hand, we have difficulties coordinating virtual communication with people in different timezones; on the other there are the complications of organising your schedule when travelling.
It’s been a busy month full of lots of amazingly useful new updates. Here are three more that we’re excited about:

It will surprise no one to hear that leading a virtual team requires a drastic rethinking of the management styles used vs. those required to manage staff members who work in the same location. That’s because a remote team is less like a set of satellites revolving around a single planet, and more like a solar system of individual planets, all following different trajectories that occasionally intersect.
So what are the important differences to consider when managing a global team?
Regardless of what your business sells, what you’re actually dealing in is time. The time it takes to pull together a strategy; the time your developers spend working on a product; the time you lose trying to coordinate a meeting with someone on the other side of the world who takes seven hours to reply to your emails...
