The objective of my feature request is a more efficient way to create, to edit and to display Calendar event data, when used together with a Tracker.
This would be useful especially in the context of project management tools like Kanban (under heavy development) and Trackercalendar.
All features and functionality like Trackercalendar, Kanban, Calendar events, should provide different simple and versatile views, based on the very same Calendar item and thus be freely combined and happily created by simply filling one simple Tracker form.
Use case example / context and problem:
I got the idea whilst working on a Tiki 25.0vcs (InnoDB, git, ...) for a small personal private office project, where I test a bunch of features.
I made a 'Task' list with Tracker ... this is planned to be used together with Kanban.
The 'Task' list contains a field type 'date and time (calendar event)' which creates a calendar event when the Tracker item is created. As far as I understand, the Tracker item displays the Start date (and time) of the Calendar event, which is connected / related to the respective Tracker item.
This is working fine and it is even possible to switch the relation of the Tracker item to another existing calendar event.
The name of the Tracker item will be the title of the Calendar event (which is good!)
Sadly the actual date and time is the only data that seems to be displayed in the Tracker item so far.
Imho it would be important to have the option to share the same item description for the Tracker item and the Calendar event.
Currently I can create a Tracker field 'Textarea' in the Tracker and use it as description.
But there is no option, that this description textarea would be displayed as decription of the calendar item. Aswell it is not possible to display the Calendar event's description in the Tracker item.
When the Tracker item is created it is only possible to distinguish the Calendar item's start date.
Only after creation the Tracker item can be displayed and from there an edit-button pressed and then the details of the Calendar item edited, like Start date and End date, duration, description, participants, and all the other data of a calendar event.
This process needs to be simplyfied.
All these data details needs to be optionally displayed in the Tracker and in the Calendar, in a way that Tracker and Calendar just provide a different view on the same event.
Following additional functionality would be required:

Unable to connect to show2.tiki.org. Please let us know of the problem so that we can do something about it. Thanks.
Show.tiki.org is currently under maintenance. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Unable to get information from show2.tiki.org. Please let us know of the problem so that we can do something about it. Thanks.
Show.tiki.org is in the progress of creating the new instance. Please continue waiting for a minute or two. If this continues on for more than 10 minutes, please let us know of the problem so that we can do something about it. Thanks.
To help developers solve the bug, we kindly request that you demonstrate your bug on a show2.tiki.org instance. To start, simply select a version and click on "Create show2.tiki.org instance". Once the instance is ready (in a minute or two), as indicated in the status window below, you can then access that instance, login (the initial admin username/password is "admin") and configure the Tiki to demonstrate your bug. Priority will be given to bugs that have been demonstrated on show2.tiki.org.
The URL for the show2.tiki.org instance that demonstrates this bug is at: http://. Note that if you get a popup asking for a username/password, please just enter "show" and "show". This is different from the initial login and password for a new Tiki which is "admin" and "admin".
For the install log, see http:///info.txt
Note that if you see PHP errors or a Tiki claiming to be missing third party software, the instance creation is probably not finished. Please wait a couple minutes and reload.
Snapshots are database dumps of the configuration that developers can download for debugging. Once you have reproduced your bug on the show2.tiki.org instance, create a snapshot that can then be downloaded by developers for further investigation.
Snapshots can be accessed at: http:///snapshots/. Note that if you get a popup asking for a username/password, please just enter "show" and "show".Create new snapshot
