Calendar functionality?

Hi,

RT has been up and running on our site for a couple of months now and - as
with everything successful - people are trying to find out ways of making it
more successful. One suggestion has been to add a "calendar function"
whereby equipment bookings requested via RT can be added to the calendar and
acted upon by the due date.

I know this isn’t standard RT functionality and I also know it’s not Best
Practical’s job to provide such. However, if anyone out there knows of a
suitable Perl module that could be installed along side RT (and can point me
in the right direction) that would be great.

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

Hi,

I’ve been asked similar question just today. Generaly there is an demand
for some kind of a “reminder” functionality. It should be able to
allow user(or reminder operator) to pick up some Date/Time(optionaly
frequency [weekday/dayly/monthly etc.]), destination (i.e. a RT queue or
whatever kind of data mined from RT database) and enter (or pick existing)
message text(Template).

Please let me know too, if you find any open solution for that common demand.

Reminders should be implementable using the rt-crontool, although I did
not work with it yet.

Sorry, this was an misunderstanding. I do not want reminder of not done
work but a reminder (say it planner, calendar, datebook or whatever)
of new/periodic work that should be started after it will be created in RT
and taken by some of technicians…i.e. to remind, that some server logs
hasn’t been checked for X days etc.

Harald

I have some idees of making a
"gantt view" of a queue.
Is this something of what you want?On Mon, 2003-09-08 at 20:18, Jan Okrouhly wrote:
