About Calendar Alt Tracker

General

I created this mod for myself to assist in finding people for alt raids. Calendar events are limited in that you can only see who has accepted / declined an event. They don't show online status, nor do they show what role (healer/tank/melee/range dps) a person is assigned as. Calendar Inviter was an addon that added this functionality to it, however it only tracked people on the calendar event. Since calendar events can only hold 100 people, I could not add everyone and their alts for the addon to check. I created this addon with a UI modeled after Calendar Inviter that would allow me to check the online status of everyone that I added, instead of just those on the calendar event.

This addon can check quite a few number of people in only a few seconds. At the time of this writing, I can check the status of 280 people in about 10 seconds.

Features

  • Each person can be added as an alt of another person.
  • Can select a main and off spec role for each person (None / Melee / Ranged / Heal / Tank)
  • Add notes to players.
  • Send individual players or entire roster to another person / guild / raid if they have the mod as well.
  • Display in a few ways:
    • Group people up by account or individual.
    • Sort by Online Status, Main Spec, Off Spec, Class, Name, and Calendar Status (when you open a calendar event)
    • Sorting done by 5 criteria in any order you wish, ascending or descending on each.
    • Filter by Name and Role.
    • Highlights people that are already in the raid.

    When i add new toons to the addon and try to link them to a main that is already in the addon - it will change the "main" to the new toon added rather then add the new toon added to the previously setup main.

    Ya, I should change that. Toons do not really have mains so to speak. I group them together by accounts. The only time one of them is displayed as a 'main' is when you group them together for display purposes. The 'main' is selected based on online status, and then by name. This way when they are grouped together by account, if one of them is online, he is at the top of the account. The alts are faded a little to make it more visible who is with what account.

    So it's more of a 'who is currently online' sort of thing. This made it easier to sort and display the list of people if it's grouped by accounts. I might look into having a true 'main' flag sometime.
