Writing my own iCal output for OpenGoo
« on: January 15, 2009, 11:35:32 PM »
Hey all;

I'm getting into the back end portion of writing the code to come up with an ICS file.  The wife is reluctant to use OpenGoo until I see the events daily.  I tend to use my mail client more than OpenGoo. heh

Anyways, I'm creating some sample data and have found that I am unsure of how OpenGoo decides when a calendar event is an "ALL DAY" event.  I don't see a particular field being set true or false, and the time stamps for start and duration in the ??_project_events table is only one hour different.

Where/how do I consider an event as an ALL DAY event?

Thanks.

PS> If its all the same to the admins, I'd like to keep this thread going for any other questions I have. ;)  Thanks!

hi,

In the next version calendar import and export (in iCalendar format) will be supported.

The column that indicates if an event is an all day event, in project_events table, is "type_id". if its value is 2 event duration is all day.

This is going to sound backwards, but will it be able to pull the ICS file from remote locations, say, for instance, Google Calendar?

The reason is that I have Thunderbird setup to work with Google Calendar, I make my changes within Thunderbird.  Everything else then, like my cell phone, hooks into Google Calendar to get updates and syncs, etc.  Typically, its a one-way ordeal for anything OTHER THAN manual modification on Google Calendar, or Thunderbird.  I don't want to speak for anyone else, but for MY purposes, one-way integration would be perfect.

Hi,

Syncronization with other calendars is a feature that we are going to develop in a future version,
can't say when but it is going to be developed.
