About Group Calendar 5

Limited updates until the expansion

I've activated a Starter Edition subscription so that I can test changes being posted in the comments before I upload them. I won't be updating frequently or doing earnest development until after the expansion when I activate my normal account, but please use the comments to share fixes you find until then and I'll work on getting them integrated and posted. Thanks!

Reporting Bugs

Feel free to report bugs in the comments section at the bottom of this page, but please remove the addon list from your logs. Those lists tend to be very large which makes it much harder for me to read and reply to other posts. I will ask for the addon list if I think it might be important or, better yet, create a CurseForge ticket and include the whole log in there instead. Thanks!

About Group Calendar 5

IMPORTANT: You must not enable Group Calendar 4 and Group Calendar 5 at the same time, neither one will be happy about it. You can switch back and forth and will not lose data in either one by doing so, you just can't enable both at once.

I have not written a manual for Group Calendar 5 yet, but the GC4 manual is available at http://wobbleworks.com/groupcalendar/manual/ and covers many of the principles used in GC5's design.

Group Calendar 5 features

  • Compatible with the built-in calendar and web-based armory calendars
  • View and edit events using local or server dates and times
  • Track tradeskill cooldowns
  • Create partnerships for coordinating events across multiple guilds
  • Export your calendar to the iCalendar format for use in external applications or web calendars
  • Reminders for upcoming events and tradeskill cooldowns
  • View events and get reminders while on your alts
  • Easy invite management to track group composition
  • Quickly invite players to the raid from the attendance list
  • Set level limits and duration for events
  • Analog clock with date on the minimap button for attractive timekeeping

Group Calendar 5 is completely re-built around the WoW calendar database. This allows it to work with the built-in calendar, including the armory web-based calendar. Also, because it works with the built-in calendar, your guild members are not required to use this addon since they can use the built-in calendar instead. They will still see your events and be able to sign up for them even if they choose to use the built-in calendar.

There is no documentation yet as I'm still working on development. The operation is similar to GC4, except that events only show up for players you invite. There is a new Invite tab in the event editor for selecting who should see the event and the selection will be remembered so that next time you create the same event you won't have to re-select it.

The multi-guild partnerships feature is different too because of the invite system the WoW calendar uses. To support multi-guild partnerships use the Partners tab in the main window to set up a roster-sharing partnership with a player in the other guild(s). Follow the instructions on that tab to set up the partnership. Once it's set up, the partner guilds will appear in your Invite tab in the event editor, where you can then mass-invite players from those guilds.

Since Blizzard doesn't have any support for mass-inviting players from other guilds, GC5 will invite them one at a time at the maximum speed Blizzard allows. This can take a while for large partnerships and I recommend that you use copy-and-paste to create additional events once you have an event set up the way you want it. Note that you can not copy an event while you're creating it, you must create it first and then you can copy it and paste the copy to a new date.

    > except for the symbols i absolutely dislike

    Well, I tried to make them nice :-/

    > would it be possible for you to make the symbolset switchable to the symbols used by blizzard?

    You will find the icons in GroupCalendar\\Textures\\CooldownIcons.blp and can edit that to make the icons anything that suits your tastes.

  • #1001

    Do all guild members need to update to the same version of the claender at the same time?

    Dose the mod itself let you know if you need to update to the proper version (mabey store version number in the calender info on the nplayer note likechan info?)

  • #1002

    Group calendar is awesome, but I get a huge green box around/behind it and it's annoying... I would like to send you an email with a jpg of it - but it says you're not accepting e-mails... what can I do ?

    You can't update using a reload ui, restart wow to get the textures to load properly.

  • #1004

    > Do all guild members need to update to the same version of the claender at the same time?

    No, versions from 1.2 though the current 2.1 beta are compatible

    > Dose the mod itself let you know if you need to update to the proper version (mabey store version number in the calender info on the nplayer note likechan info?)

    You can view other players versions in the About tab with 2.1, your own version will show up in the title of the calendar window.

  • #1005

    i updated the icons to include a abbreviation of the instance, feel free to do whatever you want with threm:

  • #1006

    Hmm. updating it to beta version does seem to clear some stuff... various people who were supposedly on the "pending" list that others saw (for that matter, why can't i see it as the creator?) were signed up, and waiting in standby for me to approve them... still though, some people that signed up nearly a month ago were not visible.

    I'm guessing though that the issue is somewhat resolved, and future events will show even those people that signed up early?

    There were various reasons people wouldn't show up, some were simply bugs in how those requests were processed by the event owner (they could sometimes get lost and the owner's GC would think they were processed so not show them). Sometimes it was people who had a friend log onto their character and blow away their events or attendance requests. Have those people who are still missing try out the new beta and once they've installed it have them do a Rebuild Database.

    > I'm guessing though that the issue is somewhat resolved, and future events will show even those people that signed up early?

    Yeah, but to be safe people who've had trouble should do a Rebuild Database after updating. If I've fixed all the bugs and the multiple computer support is working then it hopefully will be the last time anyone needs to Rebuild.

  • #1008

    Rebuild database? I may just be blind, where is this option? or is it a /command? (can't download file to check readme, am at work D: )

  • #1009

    > Rebuild database? I may just be blind, where is this option? or is it a /command? (can't download file to check readme, am at work D: )

    It's in the About tab of the UI. It takes all of the events and attendance requests you've made and compacts them down and then sends out and update with the new compacted version. The reason that it solves many problems is that it forces a new copy of your data to be sent to the network. Hopefully with the bug fixes in 2.1 it won't be necessary very often.

  • #1010

    Ah sweet :D thanks much!

  • #1012

    How odd. I would try downloading again then (flush the cache or use a different browser or download it from ui.worldofwar.net instead to ensure that you don't get a cached copy). Disable other addons to see if there's some interference. Other than that, no idea why you'd be having trouble. I'm showing 629 downloads so unless everyone is keeping quiet about it I don't think it's a problem with the addon.

  • #1013

    If you go to the about tab and click on the picture icon to figure out what versions people have you get spammed with: GroupCalendarDatabaseList_UpdateItem: X(Y) quite a few times.

  • #1014

    Thanks, I'll make sure to turn those off in the next build. Is 2.1b3 working ok for you otherwise though?
