I’ve just downloaded the plug in, it’s not quite what I was expecting, I thought it was a sync between my google calendar and UCM , so that my calendar would show inside UCM , rather than my UCM taks appear on my google calendar.

My fault for not reading it properly. It would be handy though to display the google calendar inside UCM , so that if I’m on a different computer I can see all my diary inside this fab programme. Also as I use the calendar on my phone as a master that all would sync together.

Just a thought!

Hello.

I have a few questions:
  1. Does this support multiple day events (e.g. 10AM Monday to 2PM Thursday?),
  2. Is this simply reading the ICAL file you give it, or does it connect to the Google account and read the data live? (additions, modifications, deletions, etc),
  3. What frequency can it be updated – e.g. if acception an invitation in Gmail, would you then have to export and import, or would it be updated within XX minutes? XX hours?

Thank you.

Hello,

The latest project update was actually today. The dates on this website are incorrect.

There have been about 1000 project updates this year.

You can see them all here: http://ultimateclientmanager.com/latest-updates/

Sorry for missing your message above, but we do not check these item comments often. Please direct any questions to the support website located here: http://ultimateclientmanager.com/support/

Can this pull in an already existing google calendar? The plan is to use this on a website, but only update the calendar via google…

Thanks, Matt

Importing calendar events via iCal is on the todo list, we have no ETA on this. Feel free to sign up to the newsletter to be notified when this becomes available: http://ultimateclientmanager.com/newsletters/

You have “Product due dates” written twice. You may want to update your default image. :)

Oh wow! That is fantastic!

I was just about to say you don’t have any events that span multiple days… But then I have just noticed a tiny and small green event at the top of the page in a darker (different) colour to the rest of the days. Perhaps the background colour could be the same as the lower section, just with a thick horizontal border separating the two? You will have to have a play to see what works and what stands out the best, so they aren’t missed.

Perhaps you should increase the vertical padding on this item so it is much thicker (taller) and the event text Bold White standing out more??

I would also recommend adding a couple multi-day event (different to an all-day event) so you can see them starting at 13:30 and finishing at 17:00 the following day.

Q2 Can you add more views?
  1. For example 7 Days (from today) which is different to Week (Mon-Sun or Sun-Sat).
  2. Can you view 7 Days *from yesterday)?
  3. Can you view 5 Days (from yesterday)? i.e. 3 days a head, today and yesterday?
  4. Can you view 5 Days (from today)? i.e. 4 days a head and today? The benefit being, that the day columns will be much wider, ad overlapping events will be more visible. :)
  5. Do you have an Agenda (4 – 13 week) view? i.e. with a well laid out design so it is easy to see the Title, Location, Time and the first 1,2,3 lines of the description.

I am just throwing “wants” at you. I will have to play with it a bit more before I can determine what “needs” are missing :D

Thank you kindly for your time. Your work is incredibly professional and very impressive. Keep it up.

Cheers,
Phil

Oh do you have the ability to influence the calendar styles?

You probably can query the calendar to display x amount of days, but as for styling of the calendar, and changing the All Day event and other things, you may not have access.

Let me know. :)

No matter how many times I try, multi-day events do not work.

  • Enter Description and Title.
  • Click Date (20th Aug 2014)
  • Set end date the 31st August 2014.
  • Change colour to RED.
  • Set start time as 10AM,
  • Set end time to 4PM.
  • Select a client. Select Administrator and Staff.


  • NOPE! Nothing happens….Nothing displayed on the days or across the top of the page…

    I have tried it in Week View. I have tried it in Month view… It just does not seem to work… :(

    Am I stupid??

    BUG REPORT

    When creating an event you click a day, enter a title and save it.

    Then when you click on the created Purple day, you say the date as 15/05/2014. You change the 2nd date from the same day (Clicking date Picker) and then choose the 31st of August.

    When you click on the 31st, the date in the SECOND date field (end date) is formatted differently!

    2014-08-30

    So when saved, your system isn’t translating it to the current YMD / DMY / MDY format.

    I am not typing the date. The browser / web page is entering the format of the date. :(

    Hmm Perhaps I need to do some thorough testing of this… I was really impressed and am now feeling cautious before we go ahead and purchase multiple licences and the plugins…

    ....???

    So to summarise:
    1) Issue with mutli-day events,
    2) issue with both date fields,
    3) When using advanced create and selecting end date with picker, neither are both in same format.
    4) Inconsistencies in date formatting.
    5) Default START and END date fields contains this!!!??? “26/08/20142014
