  1. Hi, I've read up on the display name issues, and wait eagerly for local control of the address book (perhaps local control is a misnomer--still can't change the display name of all the addresses I entered to my local address book...) Unrelated to that is the following: when importing an address by CSV into Trumba address book, and the display name is set to something like: "Smith Joan & John" or "Smith John & Jane Doe" The ampersand gets turned into an HTML special character code "Ampersand letter-a letter-m letter-p semicolon" (sorry for the ungainly typing - had to "spell it out" as the BB software was interpreting it as a single ampersand character). Kinda irritating now that I can't change it - oh well I should have tested first! Perhaps you could alert folks that one should be extremely conservative in the display names. I wonder what would happen to a cedilla or circumflex in someone's name? Any time frame yet on changing from global, unalterable display names to locally-changeable? Thank you! Paul
  2. <bump> I'd like to add another voice for simple ToDo lists. Essentially behave just like your calendar events except with the potential to "check them off" & sync with other devices/programs. In our volunteer organization, that would be enormously helpful: with new officers every year, it would help leave a kind of living instruction manual year by year with automatic "don't forget to do task X this week" type of reminders for new officers & committee members. Thanks again for a great product!
  3. Thanks for the question and these suggestsions - following the first post link in your message, I used the eventual solution suggested by the questioner. Our situation was similar, with 3 calendars in all: we're a volunteer organization of parents, and needed to coordinate our school program's specific events, the main school district calendar, and a US holidays calendar. Your import function worked very nicely - I used source from Mozilla's iCal/vCal list. I embedded the coming events spud (linked only to our program's specific events, with no mix-ins) in the persistent sidebar for the site, and embedded the 5-week view in our "calendar" page. All of this played nicely with WordPress templates and pages, which I installed as a light-weight CMS for our site. create a top-level calendar for the upcoming events (program-specific events only, no mix-in), and publish. embed with events spud. create a top-level calendar for the School District's district-wide dates and events. Create a sub-calendar for US holidays, mix-in with the District calendar. Mix in the program-specific calendar. Publish. Embed using calendar spud. Can be seen at the home page for the North Kitsap Options Program. thanks again to Trumba for providing a great technology - I'll provide more feedback once the school year has started and our organization has had an opportunity to test out the grouped email reminders.
