Description

Objective:

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:

  1. Add a Tracker field type ' Calendar event details' to display data from the Calendar event that is (currently) connected to the Tracker item.
  2. This Tracker field type shall have options (maybe comma separated list) to display the content of one or more Calendar event fields like End date, duration, description, participants, etcetera.
  3. It shall be possible that several Tracker fields of type ' Calendar event details' exist in one Tracker item. This way this field type could be used
    • either similar to a field type "item list' (display several calendar details in one Tracker field)
    • or similar to a field type 'dynamic item list', respectively 'item link' (display one Calendar event detail per Tracker field for more detailed display option)

  4. The Tracker field type 'Calendar event' should provide the option (to the user) to distiguish and completely fill out all Calendar event data details at the time of Tracker item creation.
    The user should not be required additional steps to reopen the event for then providing the Calendar details that he would have wanted to provide in the first place.
  5. For long time the Trackercalendar did use no calendar items but individual 'date and time' fields to create a calendar like planning tool for ressources. As far as I know the Trackercalendar was not any connected with the calendar feature. Imho it would be a good idea to create the start and end dates of the Trackercalender by using the field type 'Calendar event'
