BFD Calendar

Formbuilder GCal addon for existing website

Recommended Posts

We're looking for someone who can make an addon for our website using Formbuilder and publishing the pages to a Google Calendar instantly.

The use is a setup for laser reservations for a modelbuilding lab, see www.mekano.info to have a bit of an idea. On the 'calendar' page you'll find a linked Google calendar that lists all events per day. These events are now all added by staff members in a shared Google calendar. Underneath the calendar is a list of recent use of our lasercutters, generated by a form where user, machine and start time are entered and duration is calculated by editing that form. I have a likely form to add a reservation to enter user, machine and time/date but we want them to go into our shared Google calendar 'immediately'. If you look at early June in the calendar you can see how it should look like.

I know there are simple solutions to make this happen but haven't figured a working out.

We want Google calendar so all our staff can subscribe and see the calendar on all their devices. On the other hand we want to keep a list of students who made reservations because at some point they are limited.

If you're interested I can give you a login to see a bit more behind the curtains. Part of the website is public for students and guests, quite a few functional pages are only visible when you're logged in.

What do you want to know? We have about 1800 students, about 350 have attended a Lasercutting Workshop. Between Jan-Jun 2019 there were over 800 laser sessions on two machines. Eventually the reservation system can be extended to two CNC machines and one 3D printer. As soon as someone makes a reservation - only by staff at our desk, not by students online - it should show up on the calendar so we know a slot is taken. Reservations are standard one hour ex 9-10 or 15-16 etc.

Ideally the form also checks if the student has attended a workshop and if the slot for that machine is free for a given time/date.

Hi, 

I have checked the requirement to sync the google calendar with the website form. Once the form is added the entry by staff member then that entry will be added as event on google calendar as well as it will show on the google calendar on the site.

I have also checked the site and calendar page where google calendar is displaying and laser also. 

I have feq queries :- 

1.Only need to create event on google calendar as the staff member submit the form?
2.Please provide login detail to see the form.

Thanks

Troy

      Hey guys,
      I'm using Form builder module by Ryan and I'm trying to render HTML success message after form is sent using value from this field:

      but it renders exactly as it is written in the field, not as HTML. To render it I just use echo
      <?= $successMessage ?> What am I missing?
       
      Thanks for any help. 🧒

      Hello forum! 
      Our customer wants to choose only 15 minute intervals in the inputfield Datetime. So the dropdown values would be: 0, 15, 30 and 45.
      Is there an easy way to achieve this?
      Any help is appreciated 🙂

      Hi,
      I'm looking for a calendar solution. It should be like this: http://www.graalmueritz.net/plan-aurum.php
      The important part is, that the calendar should show 4 different stages:
      1. free
      2. arrival
      3. departure
      4. occupied
      and the actual date.
      This is for a german website. The client wants to manage the calendar be themself.
      I need detailed offers/estimations in €.
       
      thank you, Nikolai

      What is the best practice for having a form (only accessible to a logged in user) save the user's progress between sections of the form? Fieldsets? Multiple forms?
      Use case: I have a very long application form that would take 30 minutes for the applicant to fill out and I would hate for all progress to be lost due to user error. The progress needs to be logged into the user's page.
      Thanks!

      To create a new gitlab issue, I'd like to send an Email to the following email address using FormBuilder: 
      incoming+account/repository@incoming.gitlab.com
      unfortunately, the / in the email gets striped by the sanitizer:
      wire('sanitizer')->email(incoming+account/repository@incoming.gitlab.com'); // output: incoming+accountrepository@incoming.gitlab.com Is there any way to configure the sanitizer? Any other Ideas how to send the mail to this address?
       
      Ps.: I can not define the email format as it is defined by gitlab. The format is also kind of "common" and known as email-alias in the form of emailaccount+alias@domain.com – gmail uses it to label mails…
