###the following is outdated, but might still be relevant at some point, if the ownCloud Calendar improves functionality to be used as a public calendar. Please see the following thread for the current calendar solution for TransforMap: TransforMap public calendar
Some of us are using an ownCloud-Calendar to collect events and meetings (Conferences, workshops, Scrum meetings) in context of transformap.
You will need an account for our ownCloud, you can get it from our Monkey’s Team - just ask.
You can then import the calendar via a CalDav link (insert your ownCloud username) into you desktop or mobile calendar application.
The link is personal for each ownCloud user.
you either have to replace $USERNAME (or the encoded %24USERNAME) with your ownCloud username, or in the ownCloud webinterface, go to Calendar, and search for “generate calDAV link” or similar.
With your personal link, you can add events to the TransforMap calendar in your favourited client.
@almereyda, would it be possible to generate a read-only link of this calendar?
I (as someone that is interested in TransforMap, but not a technician / not registered to the TransforMap onwCloud, which I believe just very few people are), would like to click a link (anyone is capable of that) and find the overview of events. That IMHO would be a prerequisit to any format for publishing our events and meetings.
If a read only link of the ownCloud Calendar is possible to be shared with anyone in the community is possible, then I would consent in adopting the onwcloud calendar, and sharing the public link here.
If a public link is not possible, I would have a strong objection to using the owncloud calendar, as it would exclude everyone that is not subscribed to owncloud.
Personally, I cannot make any sense out of the following. It might make sense to someone technically capable, but there is just a few people in our community with that capacities. Please keep that in mind, when it comes to general communication infrastructure. (and I understand, that it is really practical for you @species, as you are technically capable, for which I have a lot of respect)
Ich finde es schwierig Discourse für alles zu verwenden. Vor allem Events und Entscheidungsfindung sollten mE ausgekoppelt werden, damit sie an anderer Stelle prominenter sichtbar, mit strukturierten Daten versehen und hier nicht so leicht untergegangen sind. Hier find’t doch nie wer nüscht.
