Hi,

One of our client wants to have Calendar integrated in his FM (15 version) application.
We have gone through your demo file and some of the features matches with your requirement.
But we want to confirm following points before we purchase FM calendar:
1. Display of events from different table and different users
2. Mainly the events are dates based and not time based, how can we avoid display of time mainly in day or week view.

Thanks,
Shweta

    Hi Shweta Senjaliya,

    Thank you for your interest in FMCalendar.

    1. Display of events from different table and different users
    Yes, you can use your on table, instead of our events table. You can change the custom function that gets all the events. You can use your own fields, or add additional fields.
    Also for the calendars/users you can use your on table. Easier is to link your users table, with the table of the calendars, via a one-to-one relation.

    2. Mainly the events are dates based and not time based, how can we avoid display of time mainly in day or week view.
    FMCalendar supports one day events. By modifying the custom function that gets the the events, you can set a fixed value for that option, so that you events don’t need time, or don’t need an end date for instance.

    I hope this answers your questions.

    Best regards,

    Dear Support,

     

    Thank you for your prompt reply.

     

    Few more queries:

     

    1. Can we display events from multiple tables under one calendar?

    2. Can we remove the time display section (like shown below) and just have all day section?

     

     

     

    Thanks & Regards,

    Shweta

    Hi,

     

    Where can I get documentation for integrating the FM Calendar?

    I could not find it under your wiki (wiki.myFMbutler.com). There is data for other plugins but could not find for Calendar integration.

     

    Any update on the mail below?

     

    Thanks & Regards,

    Shweta

    Hi Shweta,

    > 1. Can we display events from multiple tables under one calendar
    >

    Theoretically, yes. But I advise you to keep one table as the main events table, where each record relates to one record of your other tables.
    e.g. If you have 100 records in your table “birthdates”, and 200 record in your table “meetings”, the “events" table will have 300 records, where each record is linked to 1 birthdate or to 1 meeting record.
    The fields and data can come directly from your tables.

    I forwarded your mail to our developer to cross check if this is possible. He is currently on holiday, so it could take some time before he answers.

    Thanks for your reply.

    But we have large data across multiple tables so we need to check how feasible this solution is.

     

    Thanks & Regards,

    Hello Shweta,

    Sorry for my late reply.

    You said that you needed documentation in order to integrate FMCalendar in your own file ; we now have a clearer version of the install guide, linked to this comment.
    Be sure to follow each step in the right order !

    It is indeed possible to display the "allDay" part only ; in order to do this, follow these steps :

    • Edit the CalendarView layout
    • Edit the "Week" button, edit the "navView" script parameters (with the button on the right), and change the "agendaWeek" value to "basicWeek"
    • Edit the "Day" button, edit the "navView" script parameters (with the button on the right), and change the "agendaDay" value to "basicDay"
    • Go to the custom functions (File > Manage > Custom Functions… )
    • Edit the FMcalEventsArray function
    • Change the "_view = "agendaWeek" ;" to
    _view = "agendaWeek" or _view = "basicWeek" ;
    
    • Change the "_view = "agendaDay" ;" to
    _view = "agendaDay" or _view = "basicDay" ;
    
    • You will now have to edit some scripts :
    • navView : Line 11, change the Set Field [prefsUser::navView ; "agendaWeek" ] to
    Set Field [prefsUser::navView ; "basicWeek" ]
    
    • navDateChange : Lines 26 and 39, change the Else If [prefsUser::navView = "agendaWeek"] to
    Else If [prefsUser::navView = "agendaWeek" or prefsUser::navView = "basicWeek" ]
    
    • navDateChange : Lines 28 and 41, change the Else If [prefsUser::navView = "agendaDay"] to
    Else If [prefsUser::navView = "agendaDay" or prefsUser::navView = "basicDay" ]
    
    • onOpen : Lines 104, change the Perform Script ["navView" ; Parameter: "agendaWeek" ] to
    Perform Script ["navView" ; Parameter: "basicWeek" ]
    

    Best regards,

    Vincent M
