DarkThoughts (Guild Admin) 3/11/2013 11:39 PM EST : Customize Calendar Signups

Our guild has run into a bit of confusion on the calendar sign ups wih member having different interpretations of "Tentative" and "Wait List". I would like a way to completely customize the attendance choices and have a new section added that will allow the event organizer the opportunity to assign each sign up to a specific group.

In DDO, groups are limited to 6 or 12 members. I would like to be able to select Group 1, Group 2, Group 3, etc. for each signup so everyone will know what tean they are on before the event is scheduled to start. This will allow us to get into the game faster instead of discussing who goes where at the scheduled start time and wasting time when we could be conquering, killing and looting!

It would also be nice if the teams had their own colored backgrounds, not the text, but the actual background behind it. Team 1 might have a green background, team 2 might have a yellow and team 3 might have a red background for exampple. All text and background colors completely customizable of course.

I actually had two threads for calendar suggestions so I deleted the other one.

Here are the suggestions it had:
DarkThoughts said:
I've got some suggestions I would like to see added to the Calendar, specifically planned event details.

When the host is setting up the event, add a couple of boxes for Minimum Character Level and Maximum Character Level. Also allow the Host to determine the maximum number of signups available and any specific classes needed.

For example, if the host sets the maximum signups at 6 and specifically request a Healer and Trapper. The last two spots will be reserved for those specific roles unless they have already been filled in the previous open slots.
--------------------------------------------------------------------
I would like to see a new pulldown menu for the host to assign members to groups. If the event holds 6 members and we get 12 signups, it would be good to determine who is in Group 1 and who is in Group 2 ahead of time.
----------------------------------------------------------------
I would also like to see the Sign Up Status be customizable. Available, Tentative, Wait List, etc. could be left in or removed completely for a totally customizable list of sign up options.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
I would like to see the Roles expanded to include two columns: Primary Role and Secondary Role. That way the group knows my Cleric is Primary Role: Melee DPS and Secondary Role: Healer
-------------------------------------------------------------------
I would like an option for the DKP information to be removed from the sign ups because our guild doesn't use the DKP system at all and with the other pulldown additions in place, removing what we don't use could alleviate some potential over crowding of the available space.
--------------------------------------------------------------------
And finally, I would like for the small calendar in the upper right hand corner to be removable so the signup details can cover the entire page. This too could help with the overcrowding issue.

Hi DarkThoughts!

I can't do much in the way of your suggestions, but I did just make a mod named "Toggle mini calendar". When approved, it will add a link into the widget title bar that will toggle the mini calendar.

I hope that helps!

That toggle would be sweet Mottie! Thanks!

What about the other stuff I've suggested. Is it possible or would it be a coding nightmare?

The only other thing I could possibly do from the browser would be to remove the DKP column... I think I already have a script somewhere to do that.

Ah, I have it written for specific games like WoW, LotRO, Vanguard and Rift; but not DDO =(

Everything else would need to be done on the server side by GP.

Don't you have Aaron and Sandy on speed dial yet? If not, shame on them!

Regarding the key/flgging Mod... Was that your design? It doesn't support DDO either and I'm wondering how it works and whether I should be looking forward to adding it to our DDO site?

Oops. I meant Widget. If you do a search in Widgets for Keys/Flags for Characters, it iwll pull it up. I've got it on my website but there is a comment stating that it does not support DDO yet.
