Anniversary/Holiday facility

Postby azuzarte » Sun May 18, 2008 10:55 pm

Hi,
I have been using Barca for the past 3 years and enjoy its email and organizer facility. However I think I might need to stop using it as I feel the Calendar is very basic. I was used to Lotus Organizer and even now Google calendar works better.
Is it possible to have add-ons in the main Calendar that show:
Country Holidays eg UK, USA, France, Portugal, Spain and so on... (like Google Calendar)
Phases of the Moon
Anniversaries (like in Organizer). I know you can do it by creating a contact and inputing their birthday but what about their partners, children, etc... ?
Thanks

Not at present, but maybe in the next major update.

Same answer as above.

I like the idea, especially about anniversaries, since it would really help to not forget an important date from someone.
I don't need country holidays, but that personal preference.

It's not exactly what you wanted to hear, but it's all I can give right now. :?

As posted before, Slaven is already working on the next version. :)
When it will be released for beta-testing is unknown to me at this time.

It's definitely going to happen, see Any NEW development work on Barca & Pocomail? ;)

It's possible to import ics files containing holiday definitions into Barca. One huge source is:

I hope entering dates is a little easier, not to mention I hope it goes back as far as wanted for dates. For example I like to have in my calendar the Birthday of the United States Navy, Oct 13, 1775. It's not possible to enter a date less the 1980 using the keyboard, 1900 using the arrow keys. The farthest I can go back on date in contacts is 1903 to have it show as a Birthday, Anniversary in Barca.

It really would be nice to have an independent birthday, anniversary event module in Barca. I'm using a separate application for this purpose now that takes entries of Name, Event, Date.

It displays Days (until next event), Year, Event, Name, Date

3 | 5 | Anniversary | Quit Smoking | Fri, 2004-01-30
6 | 71 | Birthday | Jeanne | Mon, 1938-02-02

You can also adjust reminders to look # days back and # days ahead.
