  • Calendars should be able to be moderated even for users within the Group, Community, or Org.
  • Calendar should be able to be configured to only pull events with a specific tag and/or category

General Calendar

  • Delegate managment of personal calendar to another user (e.g. Administrative Assistant)

  • Meeting Scheduling
  • Ability to check free/busy time on another user's calendar
  • Event Owner should be displayed
  • Mutliple Delete for events
  • The tab Events should be configurable to hide bygone events
  • The tab Events should be configurable in regard to which columns (fields) are displayed
  • other Calendars should be added to a Calender, to view in one Calendar the shared Events of configured Calendars from community, group, organisation, other users, etc.

Event Types

  • Event types should be managed dynamically
  • Event types should be able to be shared across communities
  • Event types should be able to be editied at several levels.  Some event types will be specific to a Group, Community or sub-org while others will be Org-wide.

Events

  • When a user adds an event to their personal calendar, they should be able to specific the other calendars it will be added to, if any (Group, Community, Org)
  • Ability for a user to create a personal view of a calendar (see voting below)
  • Once a user requests to add an event to a calendar, the Calendar Admin should have to approve it before it will appear. 
  • Org. Calendar Admins should be able to "push" events on to calendars for Groups, Communities, and sub-Orgs. 
  • The ability to delete a single occurence of a recurring event without having to delete all the recurring events.

  • Events should be able to require a user to be authenticated with the approrpriate rights in order to see the event. (like Document permissions)

  • Attach images, documents, etc to an event

Event Entry (see post below)

  • Location for event
  • Ability to require RSVP either via link to a form or via email before exporting event
  • Allow association with a thumbnail to be displayed on the event list (e.g. logo or small jpg of invitation, etc.)
  • Events should start at start time and end at an end time. The event should be viewable during this period.

Event Import & Export

I think the improvements under 'Even Types' are very interesting...

* Event types should be managed dynamically
* Event types should be able to be shared across communities
* Event types should be able to be editied at several levels. Some event types will be specific to a Group, Community or sub-org while others will be Org-wide.

Something that I miss is the possibility to modify or create my own views for the calendar. One way to implement that could be to have the possibility to add a dynamic number of velocity templates to a calendar portlet.
Gepostet am 21.09.09 12:03.
Ability to define structures for events, similar to the web content service. I.e. a certain type of event has certain fields, which can be mandatory or optional, localized or not.
Gepostet am 25.09.09 12:19 als Antwort auf Sverker Abrahamsson.
I would like to see the ability to choose a WebContent article as the description for a calendar event. I think that's more flexible than duplicating the "CMS" to the calendar
Gepostet am 06.10.09 02:34 als Antwort auf Sverker Abrahamsson.
At a bare minimum for the calendar/event enhancements (as the list above is quite daunting)
My customers and I would like to see:
* Image/Thumbnail associated with an event.
* Rich text entry / display for description
* More summary views i.e
- Event list with title,synopsis and thumbnail
- Calendar and event list (with title,synopsis and thumbnail)
Gepostet am 15.10.09 16:38.
A post I made on the forum... it was suggested that the ability to do this may not exist, so it would be worthwhile mentioning here:

"When you export an .ical and import into Liferay then it merges the data on the site, which is what I'm wanting. However, it doesn't remove duplicates. Is there a way to only import new calendar entries, rather than all entries?"
Gepostet am 27.10.09 01:28.
Add ability to have an event point to a link or Web Content Article. Not only a WebContent article. May be an external link like the official url of the event.....

i would very much like to be able to subscribe to events from liferay to for instance my email program.
And also be able to specify an external calendar to fetch events from at a regular basis.

Hi guys!
wouldn't it be much better to have a "calendar admin" tab in the control panel from where we can administrate the configuration? (event types, for example)...
What do you think? What functionallity would you like to see there?
In this case we could move the calendar from the control panel (it has little sense to leave it there!)
Gepostet am 11.02.10 07:46 als Antwort auf delang j.
Would it be interesting to allow comments in the calendar events?

[update: already done in trunk LPS-7913]
Gepostet am 23.02.10 04:08 als Antwort auf Juan Fernández.
I would LOOOOOVE to have a Calendar Admin. And quite frankly, i think for this to work properly it's going to have to become a set of calendar portlets. I think, IMHO, that you guys (who do an awesome job BTW) limit yourselves by trying to keep things to a single portlet when they really NEED to be a set of portlets.

Event types, time increments, and automagaical data flow. Community X's public events will also be on Org Y or Community M's calendar.

Calendar tags and categories.

Color coding - all events from Category Q are pink for example.

Approval, Denial, and pending status for external requests to add events to your calendar(s)
Gepostet am 03.03.10 09:51 als Antwort auf Juan Fernández.
I would like to see the things mentioned on the first comment plus this 3

- Meeting Scheduling
- Ability to check free/busy time on another user's calendar
- Event Owner should be displayed

Well the main idea would be to manage events which could show 4 cases: community, organization unit, group or individual events

All those cases have an owner and attendees, which are invited by the owner

And the cases should manage a heriarchy, so if theres a community event and you want to have a meeting with a friend you should be informed of the conflict, not necessarily stopped from creating the event, just informed

The ability to send calendar reminders via IM is an excellent feature. Support for XMPP in addition to AIM, MSN, YM and ICQ would make it even more interesting.
Gepostet am 26.03.10 01:43.
What about the integration with other calendar servers? For instance I am going to need to integrate with Sharepoint and Exchange. I am looking at a webdav / ical type functionality.
Gepostet am 19.04.10 09:41.
Yes I'm definitely voting for CalDAV.
The thing is: it was already announced for 5.3 (6.0) but I haven't seen any progress on it. The Roadmap states that it is a third party integration by Sun.
Is this actively being worked on?

What about Google Calendar integration?

That was the first thing I missed when I first looked at Calendar Portlet.
Gepostet am 13.05.10 04:42.
And what about seeing a popup with the events of the day when you put the mouse cursor over a concrete day in the month/year/summary views? I think this would be nice. What do you think?

Using Liferay 6.0.2 I cannot add an Event.
There are no error messages.
I tried with Chrome and Firefox.
The Event form doesn't ask for a date, only time, duration, title, reminder ...
When I clic "Save" it said that the form was processed successfully.

Definitely Outlook integration! This feature has been requested by many of our users.

RSVP is a must in Events .. and it also should propagate to the walls portlet of your friends.

This is a great idea! What about a popup that displays the details for specific event.
Gepostet am 26.01.11 11:43 als Antwort auf Juan Fernández.
Need to add what Timezone an event / Calendar is displaying. We have users across multiple timezones and when they are viewing an event it doesn't display what time zone the time is in. This is confusing since if the user is not logged in and viewing an event it displays the time in the Systems timezone. However, if they are logged in it displays it in their local time zone (what the selected in profile). A simple PST MST, PST next to the time would improve usability.

Why can't Liferay default calendar has the facilities to have difference date versions like Isamic(Hijri), Japanese etc.?
It has the facility only change the content and the text. There is no option to modify the date version. Any help?
Gepostet am 24.08.11 04:04.
It also better to have a same calendar instance shows user based events and UserA' events should not be visible to UserB and UserB' events should not be visible to UserA.

Currently, it shows all events based on groupId, it is also better to get the events based on Users' EmailAddress and hide the events which are created by another User.

If this feature is already existed, please let me know. Thanks.

Regards,
Srik

- Add ability to Configure which Calendar Views (Tabs) are available for user to select and then of those selected, which would be the default Tab
- In events tab, provide ability to select which columns to show
- Ability to select background color for different Events when showing up in views
- Ability to set a Display, Expiry Date on Events

Produce/subscribe iCal feeds from/to the calender is important because many of our students use other calenders like google kalender. Outlook connector is also a very good idea.

Everybody is talking about defining ocupation of resources, but what about defining availability?

In 6.2 you'll be able to define that any resource is "busy" for a period of time. I.e. "company car will be busy in somebody's Calendar from Tuesday to Friday".
But, as far as I know, you can't define something like "Company Car will be avalilable from 8.00 to 15.00 only from Monday to Friday" and, when someone wants to book it, only avaliable slices will be shown.

What do you think about this improvement?

Apologies if it's not the correct page :-o
