Google Calendar/Personal schedule

Are you a Director, Presenter, Reviewer or Conference Manager in need of help? Want to talk to us about workflow issues? This is your forum.

Forum rules
This forum is meant for general questions about the usability of OCS from an everyday user's perspective: conference managers, presenters, and directors are welcome to post questions here, as are librarians and other support staff. We welcome general questions about the role of OCS and how the workflow works, as well as specific function- or user-related questions.

What to do if you have general, workflow or usability questions about OCS:

1. Read the documentation. We've written documentation to cover from OCS basics to system administration and code development, and we encourage you to read it.

2. take a look at the tutorials. We will continue to add tutorials covering OCS basics as time goes on.

3. Post a question. Questions are always welcome here, but if it's a technical question you should probably post to the OCS Technical Support subforum; if you have a development question, try the OCS Development subforum.

Google Calendar/Personal schedule

Is there a way to export the session list to Google calendar.
Also, is there a way to allow users to create a personal schedule?

Many thanks.

Hi billy,

This is actually an idea I've had for a while, so I've posted a bug report that you can watch for any future developments in this area: http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=4649.

I'm not sure I'm following your second question. Do you want to personalize the schedule more (which is possible in OCS 2.3), or you want to create a personal calendar (i.e. a planner for yourself)?

Cheers,
Matt

Creating a personal calendar. So, by logging in I can check to see which sessions I will attend.

Many thanks for the quick reply.

In addition to being able to track my schedule, it will also allow the conference organizers to get a feel for how many people plan to attend a particular session

Hi billysunder,

I like the sound of your second comment too -- I've posted a feature request here: http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=4663. Please feel free to CC yourself to that for future updates.

Cheers,

Folks,.

Do you know if this is going to be incorporated into the new version?

Cheers.

Hi Billy,

This would be a fairly non-trivial undertaking, and it definitely won't be in the upcoming stability release (OCS 2.3.4, released probably within a month). It might be scheduled for the next release, though, although I can't make any promises.

Cheers,
James
