I noticed the Mrudangam artiste names for certain concerts as Gandhiraman. I guess its Ganapathiraman!

vganesh: I have added you in the email distribution list of calendar999 AT gmail DOT com .

Those who do not have 'edit' access to the carnatic calendar, send an email with the event details to calendar999 AT gmail DOT com The email will get to ganesh_mourthy, vganesh and me. One of us will update the calendar.

Hello all,

Having a calendar is an excellent idea, and thanks for making this happen. By sharing that with my own google calendar, I now have a single place to learn about concerts.

I see reviews for concerts not in the calendar. Can I suggest that any time we come to know of a concert, we immediately add an entry to the calendar if not already there (by either entering it oneself - if permitted - or sending an email to the right address)? And, when we post a concert review, we can update the calendar to point to the review. Later on, we can add a search function to the calendar to search by singer, raagam, venue, etc.

I can see the need to restrict edit access to a small few (at the least, to avoid duplication errors). Is it possible to designate one (volunteer) person per geographic area to add events to the calendar in their area (others in the area can email this person)? Just a thought, may be there's a simpler approach?

suresh: Thanks for your excellent ideas on the enhancements for the use of the calendar.

The instructions for getting edit permission and for emailing the event details are in the first post of this topic. So those logistics are taken care of.

Your added layers can be done over time. It is a good idea to link from the calendar to the reviews and discussions of the same. If you would like to volunteer for back filling reviewed concerts, you are very much welcome to do that. You can include the link to the review thread in the general description section of the calendar event.

The search for ragas, compositions etc. that figured in concerts is already supported in a rough form within the forum. You can limit your searches to the Review sub forum.

But, as you wrote, linking it with the calendar has some important advantages. Richer queries and searches of this sort would then become possible. "Give me all the bhairavi compositions sung at Krishna Gana Sabha during the month of December". We need a calendar search feature where for a given "When" range and for a given "Where", follow the link in the description field and search the given search string. This is just an example. Does anyone know if Google supports this kind of a query? That will indeed be a useful thing.

vasanthakokilam,

Thanks. I can definitely enter concert events for my area (San Francisco area in the US), unless some one's already doing it. (I'll email the admin for permission.) Also, yes, using google calendar Javascript API one can retrieve events and display those containing specific text. See this link for a sample (in the box, enter admin@rasikas.org and click on 'Retrieve').

Thanks suresh_s for that link. I guess with some programming, the search from calendar into concert reviews can be done, though it may not be trivial amount of work. The query based on 'what, when and where' is straightforward if not easy. From there we need to get the link to the review and search deeper to answer the query 'list who all sang Bhairavi at KGS during the season'.

The query can actually be free form like "KGS December 2008 Bhairavi" and let the user weed out any unnecessary information returned ( like how we use google for other purposes anyway ). I do not necessarily want to write code ( at best some declarative statements to hook things up ). Somehow point Google search engine in the right direction using the calendar structured data to guide and limit the search better than the brute force way it uses today.

I am pleased to see that the concert calendar is being to put to use to some extent ( http://rasikas.org/calendar.htm )

There are still quite a few concerts that do not get on the calendar. Please spread the word to the extent you can to the various sabhas you all visit so all their events can be added to the calendar on a timely basis, instead of finding out about the concert from that day's newspaper.

We need wider participation from the concert organizers and musicians so that it is beneficial to all.

As Suresh points out above, you can add this concert calendar to your calendar and set up SMS alerts etc.

I'm a bit behind with this, and reminding myself to look more often, but I have been finding the red squares, especially when there are several to a day, rather off-putting.

OK, so you all knew about it... I just discovered the agenda view (top right of the calendar block) which turns it into a lovely, easy-to-read listing :)

Indeed Nick. Thanks for surfacing that point. Agenda view is the way to go.

And, after posting that, I found that one can, in "Settings" specify it to be the default view. This may well not suit anyone who uses a personal Google Calendar to organise their appointments --- but it suits me!

Some of the events I added seem to be deleted. Is this possible or am I being paranoid? :)

If it is happening, someone who has been granted edit access, is abusing their privilege.

Can "A" edit/delete something "B" has entered? If so, this can be a problem. Anyway we can avoid that?

2/8/11

Post No #41 dated 25 Sep 2009 22:35 talks of this Calendar url :
http://rasikas.org/calendar.htm

But it gives the foll error :
"The requested URL /calendar.htm was not found on this server.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request."

****************

Also "calendar" : http://rasikas.org/calendar.php given in Post #1 gives the same error.

*****************

In Post #12 dt 19June, 2009, it says :
"1. Send your google ID (i.e gmail ID) to the email given in the first post above. This is only required to give you access to the Rasikas calendar."

But, in Post #1 (dt 15 Sep,06), now, I can only see a link to "calendar" : http://rasikas.org/calendar.php
Which email id is being referred to here ?
Also, where are : " "Events Calendar" on the "More features" box on the left."

Perhaps, the above were in the older template of this forum ?

Request, pl clarify the exact steps to approach this forum's "calendar" - to view and to add events respectively (add facility should be restrcited, but read access could be free for all ?).

TIA
