CalendarExtras

This project has become inactive.

This project is inactive and its default file will likely not work with the most recent version of World of Warcraft. The author may have abandoned it, or it may have outlived its usefulness.

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.

    GroupCalendar 5 does all this with the in-game calendar, so just officers need to install it, everyone else can use the built in calendar no problem.

    Does CalendarExtras supports synchronization of updates done by several guildies regarding the updates on the "Role" for example ?

    Im looking for an addon that shows to everyone what roles are subscribed (and also allow guildies themselfs to update their own roles also), so just made the test of me (GM) and a Guildie both using the addon, and my changes on the "Role" of someone subscribed didn't show up on my guildie using the addon also, and vice-versa.

    Thx

    Awesome addon :) I have a feature request, however :) Would it be possible to allow users to create recurring events, since the vanilla calendar doesn't support this?

    Thanks :)

    I might add distinction between ranged and melee DPS. I was planning to change the role texts to the icons used in the LFG interface, so when I ever get around to updating it, I'll try to split the DPS types too

    Hi! Nice addon but I have a small suggestion. What do you think of a new role for DPS to have one for melee and one for ranged DPS? Some bosses don't work well with too many DPS classes of one kind and some classes can be both (druid cat/moonkin, shaman elemental/enh.) so just setting DPS does not let you know what talents and buffs he has.

    The export string is already sorted alphabetically, so if you wanted to sort it by status and then name, change the export format to "STATUS NAME" as an example. It's alphabetical though, so "accepted" would be before "confirmed" and "out" before "standby" and so on, but anyway. Was this what you meant?

    I could of course make it always sort the way the list is sorted in the event screen, if that would be better.

    Oh and yes you can post requests here, or make a ticket :)

    hi there!

    loving the extra's for my list there mate. gives me a good overview of what i can expect for a raidnight.

    do you think it's possible to sort the export raiding list to make it show the people who accepted first and then the ones who declined? preferably sorted to tank, heal and dps within the accepted and declined ones.

    kinda like this

    accepted

    - accepted tank

    - accepted tank

    - accepted healer

    - accepted healer

    - accepted healer

    - accepted dps

    - accepted dps

    - accepted dps

    - accepted dps

    - accepted dps

    declined

    - declined player

    - declined player

    - declined player

    i always make a list of available people and sort them into their roles. but an overview of all available people for a night sorted withtin their roles would make my life a WHOLE lot easier.

    is this possible? or even the right place to request it?
