About Group Calendar 5

I'm not updating Group Calendar for now

I've suspended my WoW subscription and will probably not be playing again until the next expansion. If you come up with code changes to fix problems introduced by content patches in the meantime, please post your fixes in the comments section and I'll work on getting them integrated and posted.

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.

    I forgot to mention that GC5 can be used interchangably with the Blizzard calendar. Left clicking the minimap button brings up GC5 while right clicking brings up the Blizzard calendar. GC5 uses the Blizzard calendar for its event storage so you can create and edit events in either one if you want.
  • #4830
    I've come across another problem today ... since the last update I've had no problems seeing who has signed up for events and, prior to today, no problems changing their status, however, today I went to change the status of a couple of people - the two buttons next to their name (confirm/standby) would not work. They were there, they were red, but they were unclickable. The small down arrow to the side to change role, status, etc, worked ... but not very well - the selectable area for the arrow was below where the graphic for the arrow was. I've had no error messages yet - I'll let you know if I do.

    I noticed last night during my raid that GC 5.5.4.3 was using a lot of memory. It was number 1 at 4.4 MB on my list. I was also dc'ing a lot last night. No error messages to say it was GC vs the other addons I disabled, but the high memory usage seems more than usual.
  • #4836
    4.4 MB sounds fine to me and is not something I'm worried about. My PC has 12GB and my laptop has 8GB, so 4 MB is only 1/2000th of the physical RAM on my smallest machine.

    GC5 is using that memory to cache events from your characters as well as a few other caches such as guild rosters for the Invite tab. That data is largely static (unchanging) and will not affect performance because static data doesn't trigger garbage collection.
  • #4825
    Sorry for the delay in replying - taken me some time to actually have the time to experiment. I have had several problems - but no error messages. The main one is that often when I login to see who has signed for an event, I can hover my cursor over the event in the month-per-view window and it shows who has signed, but when I click on the event the page is blank (although the numbers of who has signed, on standby, etc are there). Sometimes everything seems to show okay, but then the buttons to change someone's status, although they look clickable, aren't (when on a character that has permission to do so).

    I think ... after much testing ... I've tracked it down to one addon. As its intermittent I'm not 100% certain, but so far it pans out to be down to an addon called Explorer Coords (http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-addons/details/explorercoords.aspx) - I have the most recent version of both that and GC5.
  • #4826
    I guess its not completely down to that addon - I was trying to assign roles etc on GC5 tonight and got this:

  • #4827
    Thanks for the crash dump Poison -- I was able to track down that bug and get it fixed. I'll post a new build shortly.
  • #4828
    Cool, thank you ;-) I'll have a play and let you know if I come across any other problems.
  • #4819
    Sorry for the delay -- WoW 4.2 came out right at the start of my vacation (went to San Francisco for a week to see "The Ring of the Nibelung", was awesome!).

    This update fixes the menu issues which prevented events for being created/edited, let me know if there are other problems.
  • #4823
    This still doesn't work for me. I can create an entry, but most times I can't then see anyone who has signed up for it. When I can see who has signed up, I'm unable to change their status (ie, to accepted, standby, etc).
  • #4824
    Show Lua Errors and turn on messages to see them.
  • #4822
    Thank you for updating this almost indispensable addon.
  • #4821
    Thank you! Hope you had a wonderful vacation!
  • #4820
    Thank you so much!
  • #4818
    I was able to create an event, however, later when I try to open it I cannot and have to turn of GC5 for it to work and see the event - very sad! I love this addon. Hope you have time to update soon
