Re: Adventures in Time Mgmt: iPad Edition

Emilie, every year around November starts looking for a new paper calendar, and I keep thinking how great it would be if there was a digital solution for her. I use my cell phone, and that works great for me because I have simple calendar needs. But she has massive calendaring voodoo working for her, and needs some serious mojo behind her solution. I cant wait to hear about how this works for you, and maybe look at getting one for her down the road.

Kate uses something called ipronto. She says it's OK, but I guess she's still getting used to it. Don't know if you are familiar with David Allen's "Getting Things Done" (I have the book), but he's got an iPhone app called Action Lists: GTD.

Calendar is one of my [three] primary disappointments on my spiffy new [An]droid phone. I couldn't believe that Mac ical wouldn't allow seamless integration with Google calendar. Of course, the real embarrassment was that Google calendar has wonky integration with [Google] Android cellphones. Ah well, the bleeding edge. Hopefully these folks get things sorted. I'd really love an end all be all integrated solution for calendaring. If you go all digital, be sure you back things up...

Update #1 - I located an article that explains how to force multiple Google calendars to sync with your iPad. http://jkontherun.com/2010/04/..._medium=recent-posts

I hope it's much more graceful (not to mention functional) than the Android and iCal "solutions".

Re: Calendar - Repeating Events

Hi Robin, Hoop.la's calendar does not currently support recurring events. I'll change this topic into a Suggestion so that others can vote on the idea. Thanks, Brian

Thanks for the suggestion Brian. I tried this by saving a couple of days of my Outlook calendar as an iCal (actually the only option was .ics so hopefully that's the same thing) but when I imported the file I just got a bunch of events titled "Busy" with no other details. I'm adding a screen shot so you can see. Do you know what has gone wrong here?

Hi tj27, You should check the ics file that you exported. I suspect that you may have only exported a "free/busy" calendar which will only show the events as "busy" without revealing the actual event title of the underlying event. Hoop.la will import whatever the event title is specified in the ics file. You can try inspecting the ics file in a text editor (such a Notepad on windows) to see if the titles of the events are included there. Hope that helps! Brian

tj27 ·
Brian, you have hit the nail on the head! All of those events contain the text "Busy" in a few places (e.g. "SUMMARY;LANGUAGE=en-au:Busy"). So the next thing I will need to work out is how to get Outlook to save the events with their actual title/subject. If I work that out I'll post an update here.

Exporting and importing ics files simply isn't going to work in a shared environment where there are multiple operating system and all levels of knowledge on the part of the users. So far I've found web based calendars to be the weak point in many systems. Unfortunate.

Re: Multiple Calendars Now Supported

Paul Heymont ·
Thanks! This is a big step in a number of ways, including making the list rather than the grid the first thing visible, and allowing it to scroll into the future, instead of being broken up by month. One question for us: On our site ( http://www.travelgumbo.com ) we have the calendar listed as Upcoming Content Planner (bloggers only) under the TG Stuff menu item. Is there an easy way to simply have the calendar not appear on the menu for those who do not have calendar access? Friendlier than...

Re: Multiple Calendars Now Supported

Jonmark Weber ·
Good morning Paul, Glad you like the calendar changes, we are very excited about them here as well. The reason that the sub menu item does not respond to a users permissions is that its a custom menu item. Custom menu items cannot be hidden or shown by Hoop.la based on a users access to the web page that they link to. The "Calendar" built in menu item will show or hide based on a user's ability to view at least one calendar on your site. Hope this helps, Jonmark

Re: Multiple Calendars Now Supported

Paul Heymont ·
If I understand correctly, then, we could remove the current calendar listing we have, implement a "calendar" item on the menu line, and it would then show or not, depending on user permission? That would work for us... __________________________________________________________________________________

Re: Multiple Calendars Now Supported

Jonmark Weber ·
That is correct Paul, though you will want to be careful because you already have a lot of root level menu items so adding another one could blow out the width of your site. Just something to be mindful of, Jonmark

Hi, Emma: Can you tell us more about the issue? What happens when you try? Which calendar type are you trying to add (Google, iCal, Outlook or Yahoo)? The more detail you can provide, the better!

Hi Lori, It actually doesn't seem to be a problem with all events, but in events in our group calendars (e.g. http://www.eenetconnect.ca/g/k...-facilitated-by-mhcc ) the iCal and Outlook functions don't seem to work. The date and time don't seem to be showing up in the event description either. Perhaps this is the problem?

Just an update that the date and time don't seem to be showing up in any of the event descriptions on our site. The time and date do appear on the calendar/list of upcoming events, but if someone is accessing an event just via URL they can't see when the event is being held.

Hi Emma, You'll be happy to know that we've fixed both of the bugs you reported here! You should now properly see the event's date/time on the event details page, and you also should be able to add group events to iCal and Google now. Thanks again for the reports! Brian

Re: Calendar disclaimer

Jonmark Weber ·
Hello Emma, There is currently no description available for the calendar module, and no simple way to accomplish what you described. The only option I can think of would be to inject a description using DHTML. I will turn this into a suggestion, would you like me to make this public as well? Cheers, Jonmark

As a short term solution, you could potentially put that wording in a custom widget that shows up on the Calendar page...just an idea.

Re: Show RSVP options to guests

Sure, let's make that a suggestion. I looked at this screen for several minutes wondering why there was no clear way to indicate that I wanted to attend. I hesitated to ask the question because I thought that I must just be missing the obvious button. Yes, let's make this a suggestion. Thanks. ST

Re: Copy Calendar Events

Morgan ·
Just wanted to post again how incredibly useful this would be... I have many recurring events that occur every Weds or Thurs, for example, and it is quite tedious to add it anew for multiple weeks out. I think having the ability to repeat the event until X date or unlimited would be SUPER helpful. I am sure that there is a lot of flexibility that could be added to this (bi-weekly, monthly, etc) but having the starting point listed above would be amazing. Like this idea - Vote up, please!

Re: Add ability to RSVP to chat events

I could see that, especially since we automatically add chat events to the site calendar. (If you added the chat event to your site calendar separately you you could get the RSVPS, it would show up twice in the calendar, which is obviously not ideal.)

Re: Calendar - repeat events?

Hi Morgan- You cannot currently choose multiple recurring days for one event. I would suggest just creating two separate recurring events... one for the Saturday recurring day and the other for the Sunday recurring day.

Re: Calendar - repeat events?

It varies... usually there is a major update about once per month, depending on the scope of the release. We do smaller updates (usually bug fixes and minor changes as often as weekly).
