Or replacing Calendar and interact with external Calendar like exchange or google or Calendarserver

Quote from: electricwildflower on August 11, 2013, 04:04:06 PMAbit of an old discussion but not sure where to post.One idea i have is being able to pick multiple dates for events as sometimes i have flyers for events promoting a festival, gig etc that are over a few days or a complete tour. I would be able to set the even to show on all the dates and not as i have as standard the first event date.
Quote from: Arantor on November 14, 2013, 09:06:56 PMThat's the thing... is it really worth the effort and time it will take me to research it, implement, test, etc. for the benefit?There are vastly more useful things that would benefit more users if I were to do *those* rather than this.
Quote from: byproduct on November 17, 2013, 11:34:15 PMcalendar utilization, for calendar's sake, on a straight yakk em up forum is fairly pointlesstime stamping accomplishes the same job.so makes sense it'd rank low in dev.
Quote from: Arantor on November 18, 2013, 09:30:32 AMShow me there's a *significant* demand and it'll get built. Until then, it won't happen unless I .find another reason to implement it.
Quote from: demlak on November 19, 2013, 07:00:24 PMwe know.. it´s not paid.. so we won´t tell you what your "job" is.. we just tell you, there are people who want those features.. and there is a demand on that.. we cannot show how big this demand is.. but please.. don´t bother us with such "killer arguments".. that´s not fair..
Quoteactually, I will note the subscription-events *IS* already a mod for 2.0.xrecrurring events WAS a mod for 1.0.x and 1.1.x but never made it to 2.0 - which suggests that it doesn't have enough interest for anyone to even pick up the old mod.
Quote from: Kindred on November 20, 2013, 10:02:50 AMWe know that people use the calendar... although I think - if we took a real scan of all SMF websites, you might find the percentage much lower than you think.We also agree that the calendar would benefit from some enhancements...However, from the PROJECT point of view - we have limited development resources.We have to prioritize what features get added, what gets "fixed" and what other things the developers (and others) spend their time on.Much of that prioritization is based on the visible and know-able use of or desire for specific features.In this case, the features being requested seem to have a very minor share of the SMF userbase.Which implies that these features would be better designed as a MODactually, I will note the subscription-events *IS* already a mod for 2.0.xrecrurring events WAS a mod for 1.0.x and 1.1.x but never made it to 2.0 - which suggests that it doesn't have enough interest for anyone to even pick up the old mod.
Quote from: byproduct on December 01, 2013, 09:03:55 AMit's apparently important enough a feature that ya'll keep including claendar rather than leaving it out and saving the space, load time and resource usage."I" think that in itself lends credence that it has value.
Quotei would argue that adding features as have been described in this very thread WOULD increase calendar usage AND meet other addon request.
Quotebut I am saying if those markets exist then it is only because there is enough need/want.
