That's the inherent nature of FCP X. The app is cheaper and more streamlined, so you have to augment it as needed, based on your workflows.

For most feature film jobs, you'd need Sync-N-Link X, EDL-X and X2Pro. Sync-N-Link X isn't essential, but speeds up syncing of double-system audio jobs, however, only if camera and sound have common TC. EDL-X is needed if your DI/grading house requires EDLs, which is nearly all of the top ones.

If you look at Avid, there are helper apps made by Avid that are included with Media Composer, such as EDL Manager and Film Scribe. A lot of editors and assistants also make great use of Filemaker Pro databases.

So you are never going to get away from needing some extra software, besides the core NLE.
