Viewing appointments

Hi!

I am very exited about the Appointments + plugin. I have two questions, however:

Is it possible to sync all appointments with one click with google calendar?

Is it possible to arrange the appointments by time?

Now the appointments are listed in the order they were made. Since we are expecting more than 40 appointments per service provider per day, we need a way to see the appointments in a chronologicar order or at least filter out only todays appointments.

    Hi,

    Unfortunately both of them are not possible at the moment.

    The first one (full GCal integration) will take some more time, possibly in 1.2 version, as this requires another method rather than GCal button.

    The second one (sorting and/or filtering) will be available soon, possibly in 1.1.6 or 1.1.7 version.

    Cheers,
    Hakan

    Hi Hakan,

    I actually made a little tweak:

    On line 7851 (appointments.php) i changed

    ORDER BY ID DESC -> ORDER BY start

    In order for this to work the Wordpress date settings must be so e.g. 2012-11-20.

    Does this seem like a valid solution to you?

    Kind regards,
    Sami

    One more question. Even though the date format is excellent for arranging, it is not very nice in the front end.

    Is it easy to tweak the code so that the plugin would use different dateformat in the front-end than in the back-end?

    Hi,

    If it works for you, of course you can use it. mysql datetime field can be ordered by simple string order. It works. But I have to provide more general solutions, i.e. it should be selectable considering all combinations.

    Is it easy to tweak the code so that the plugin would use different dateformat in the front-end than in the back-end?

    As you know WP itself supports only one date/time format. A+ follows this.

    You can try to write a child class which overrides date_format, time_format and datetime_format constants of the parent if it is front end, but I cannot guarantee the results of this.

    Or you may look for a plugin which makes this for you. I saw an application which changes time zone according to user's IP and thus location. Maybe there is another one with which you can set another set of time/date formats.

    Cheers,
