Calendar feature request.

#1

Post by Ktomlds »

The current calender system is nice, but... it lacks several modern capabilities that would make it very useful and perhaps result in its being used a great deal more.

in the add event area.....
you should of course put in an Event title, date, time, Event Description and optional place of the event

it should also be able to indicate a few options such as. crontab capability ...
a. an option to Notifiy a member or members via email or a comma delimited set of emails... of the event showingthe Event title, date, time, Event Description and optional place of the event
the emails should be sent out on the saving of the event, and... x (user selectable ) days before the event (ie the day before) as a reminder. The email address should be from the member list email only. All emails should probably be sent out at a specific time 2am for example to make sure every time zone is covered.

b. an option to notify a member or members via text or a comma delimited set of phone numbers... of the Event title, date, time, Event Description and optional place of the event
The text messages addressess should be from the member list phone numbers only. All texts probably be sent out at a specific time 2am for example to make sure every time zone is covered.

c. a special field that designated elders (example) elders quorum presidency can place remarks in that only they can see and access.


there is a free, fully funtional php based calendar that already has all these features, including multiple calendars that could be adapted to the church calendar system.
see. the luxcal system at. https://www.luxsoft.eu

Just to clarify, this is a user-to-user mutual-support forum, _not_ an official feature request channel. It's very unlikely that this thread will ever be seen by anyone with any influence toward implementing your ideas. There are two methods if you wish your ideas to be seen by someone who might be able to help it come to pass. One method would be to use the "Feedback" link or button on the main Church website. Using a link from a calendar page might be a good idea. Another method would be to talk to your bishop or stake president about your ideas. If they relay the ideas up the ecclesiatical chain of command, and if enough others do, the ideas might get noticed.

Note that the existing calendar does have a notification function, but the controls are in the hands of the users. The leaders can send, but the users have to check the right boxes to receive them.
