auto exchange data
I would like to see an automated way to exchange the calendar data. My problem is to connect the data from the taskcoach calendar with my other calendars.
I think a similar function like the orage calendar in XCFE. You choose one oder several iCal files, which are shown up in the calendar. This entry's are not imported to the internal database and cannot modified, just displayed.
Since there are a lot of wrappers out, for google calendar or caldav or so, this could help all people to have some kind of integration. Just set up a script with cronjob an have a kind of sync...
My main problem is, if a customer calls and I need to give a time for doing some tasks, I need to look at the tastcoach calendar and besides need to look at my private calendar, to see, which time is free.
So If a customer call me, it would be great to have an overview of all events in the tascoach calendar. I do not work every day from 8 to 4. I have a lot of private events during the day, since I have to care for 3 kids beside.
I also do not like to share a calendar with any online service, since this data's belongs to me. To have some google calendar sync integration, there will be the most coverage for the users, but not for all. All my Data's are sored on my own machines and a sysnc is done with owncloud and the caldav protocol.
I would see it the other way round- if TaskCoach would be able to store (sync) the tasks in (with) an existing CalDav calendar resource TaskCoach would act as an administrative frontend and the information is available by only looking at one calendar (the CalDav one).
This is a requirement quite similar to my expecation- I have a CalDav server which acts as my primary source for events and tasks and which serves all my other devices. If TaskCoach would sync via CalDav I could add the tasks to the server and all clients are automagically updated with the complete view of everything.
