I wonder if this is a numbers thing. Up to a certain number of residents it 
works and then doesn’t anymore. We used to work this way but at some point it 
was just impossible. 

Over the years people became used to everything being online, but I think it is 
more complicated than that. We grew from 50+ to almost 100. We have a lot of 
new residents and its hard to get them all up to speed with several systems 
going on. 

Online scheduling allowed us to do more, more easily. For example, each unit 
has one parking space and parking on the street is by permit only. During the 
day it is often hard to park. We have several people who don’t have cars so 
others can schedule their spaces for guests, cleaners, workers, etc. That was a 
nightmare without an online calendar so people could reserve a specific space 
for specific times. Now anyone can offer their space when they are away and it 
doesn’t get crazy.
