Feature Request: Google Apps/Google Calendar integrations

Post by bwagman » 16 Mar 2015, 01:05

Hello,

Our nonprofit relies heavily on our calendars through our Google Apps system. Is there a way that there can be SSO or other integrations into Google Apps platform?

More importantly is there a way to integrate the calendar with calendars in Google Apps?

I also noticed in settings the option to download a toolbar that helps integrate into Monster and Hotjobs, etc. Is there a Toolbar for Chrome? What about integrations into VolunteerMatch, Idealist, Craigslist, Grantspace.org, vounteennation. Now I know that this is a lot and also branching into volunteer positions but would be a great integration feature!

Hi,

it should be relatively straightforward to export the opencats calendar as an ICAL format - so that it can be subscribed to. There is a well-known php ical export library. You'd have to ask a coder to work this enhancement.

As for the rest - I don't have a chrome plugin, or any additional jobsites in-scope right now.

I've now implemented an iCal feed for the calendar! Still testing a couple of bits but let me know if of interest :)

Hey @dveos, just tidying up issues and contributions on opencats - I can't see the attachment here


UPDATE: probably an issue with a phpBB upgrade https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtop ... 6&start=60
UPDATE2: found it - added here: https://github.com/opencats/OpenCATS/issues/381

- can you re-add it (or send to me) and I'll add it as a PR to the project. Thx!

Hey @dveos - so long as my attachments in the linked issue are fine, we can stick with that. i'll add it as a PR to the 'enhancements' folder for now.. I need to get on and review all the enhancements up to and including PHP 7 compatibility.. I have about 17 to go through :-)
