CalendarExtras

This project is abandoned.

Whether this project is out of date or its author marked it as abandoned, this project is no longer maintained.

If you wish to take this project over, please report it and state your intentions.

Event view

CalendarExtras adds some features to hopefully make the ingame calendar a bit more bearable to use.

Features

Sorting by role

Adds fourth sorting method to the create/view event windows, that lets you sort the invite-list by role (tank/healer/melee/ranged). People of the same role are hardcoded to first be sorted by status and lastly by name.

You can change roles by right-clicking the player in question and selecting the bottom option Set Role

Extra status indicators

Shows a check mark next to players who are in the group already, and dims offline players.

Export invitees

Adds a tab at the bottom of the event window which pops up an editbox, letting you copy out basic data of the event and a formatted list of the invited players.

Another editbox is included to set the format of each line. Valid tokens are: NAME, LEVEL, CLASS, STATUS, RANK, MOD and %t for the tab-character

Mass-select

Select multiple people from the invite-list like you would in any standard GUI. Use shift/ctrl to range/add-to select. All the right-click menu options apply to all the selected players

Invite-raid

Invite the current raid to a new or existing event, either by right-clicking the Invite button, or going to the Mass Invite screen, and selecting Invite current raid/party.

Note: This feature is horrendously slow, and I'm not sure if it can be made any faster, so you will have to wait a few extra seconds if you're inviting all 25 players.

    Damn it, I wanted to set the addon as abandoned and it seems to have now removed the Curse page of it along with comments there. Sorry about that.

    Anyways, I just wanted to say that I took a long break from WoW and still have no motivation to work on this, sorry, so I've set it to "abandoned" and license is now public domain. If anyone else wants to take it over then feel free to do so.

    I removed the cloned repo since it's served it's purpose :-)

    @wT-: Go

    Ok, everything should be working now. Project repo is using Mercurial, Dridzt's MoP fixes were merged in and packager seems to have pushed out the new version. Let me know if there's still bugs in it. I tested it ingame for a bit and it seemed to work fine.

    I changed the project repository to be open now, so small patch-day fixes can be committed without my intervention (I hope), but I'd prefer to be asked before bigger changes of course and so on :)

    School and GW2 has been taking too much of my time lately :(

    I'm going to make some changes to the repository. First of all I'm going to change it to a Mercurial repo as I've been using Mercurial for everything else for a good while now, I will also make the repo open for other people. I should have done that a long time ago...

    When it all works, I'll import Dridzt's fixes and push out a fixed version. Thanks for your patience!

    Would like to see this very useful addon updated for 5.x.

    If the original author has gone inactive, can you open the repo to allow fan updates?

    I've been managing the same guild for 3+ years now and I was responsible for all the raid planning software we have used throughout this time. (using wowraidmanager now)

    I've read the other comments and I would not really like to see a sharing module, unless one can disable it. On the other hand I think the officers should be able to see the situation of any in-game event on a role basis.

    I have this suggestion: Check the officer notes and look for special formatted text like {H/T} for healer/tank and if these exist, populate your addon with this data. This way no sync'ing is required and if someone does not want this feature, they just don't have to put these info in officer notes.

    I am aware that this does not work for all possible uses of Calendar, but it is a nice enhancement anyway.

    Regards,

    Edit: creating a ticket just in case

    Could another role column be added to support a second spec for those with dual specs? Such as for a pally with Prot primary spec and a Holy secondary spec you can mark Tank and Heal.

    I got a couple of ideas where sync could be done with little effort, pm me so i can share with you my ideas ;)

    Cheers

    Currently, not syncing roles was a design choice for me for two reasons:

    1. The biggest thing is that it would cause all sorts of headaches to actually implement it. What to do when people are offline, what to sync when and so on. Doing it so it works well would require a lot of work, and I don't like the idea of doing something that only works half of the time.
    2. It lets you use the roles the way you want, so the event creator can have his own set of roles assigned, and you can have your own set of roles set the way you want 'em.

    Maybe the way I envisioned the roles would be used isn't exactly what most people want and need, so I might rethink it, but there's still the huge headache of figuring out a way to reliably sync things.

    I got plans, but I honestly don't know when I'm gonna get around to actually reworking the roles portion.

    But Group Calendar "Roles" is still not visible. Guildies to see any extra information some addon invents (like "Role" in CalendarExtras or GroupCalendar) guidlies would have to use someaddon ofc, and that's ok if it's a simple addon.

    CalendarExtras GOOD: simple and friendly look and feel. CalendarExtras BAD: doesn't sync "roles" changes between guildies using CE.

    GEM Bad: is too complex for normal mortals. GEM Goods: syncronize between all guildies using it; contains roles also.

    GroupCalendar Bad: doesn't syncronize Roles. GroupCalendar Goods: fantastic simple look and feel that doesn't scare plp.

    I could code and add sync support myself, when i figure out best way to keep the extra info like "roles". But just wonder if wT could do it instead.. it owuld be much faster :)

    Cheers
