An alternative to multiple event windows?

First, this is my fourth SeedCode calendar integration, and the latest version for FMP 12 is a knockout. Client is over the moon with this calendar.

The one thing we would like to improve is the handling of concurrent events. We have lots of these, and the current behaviour is awkward when you have a handful or more of events starting at the same time. Instead of popping a window for each event, would it be hard for us to pop instead a clickable list of these concurrent events, from which we could click to the event we want?

Hi Steve,

In the Pro Calendar, jumping over to the "Simple View" gives you a more traditional Portal with the events listed in order...other than that its a mod, and how you'd do that is a challenge. We're dealing with fixed columns (reps) so having two events squeezed together is probably doable (most things are), but would be tricky.

Let us know if that helps,
Jason

Jason: Checked out the simple view for the day but it doesn't seem to sort them chronologically, and the sort fields available for that portal don't seem to offer a remedy. Looks good in other respects.

Hi Steve,

Right, the portals themselves are just reflecting what's in the global variables, which should already be sorted correctly. Can you check the Sort script itself, it's not uncommon for it's references to get broken during integration and you won't necessarily notice it in the non-simple views.

Let me know if that helps.

That solved it, Jason. Thanks!
