Feedback on MailReminderPlugin

-- AshishNaval - 04 Nov 2004

This is a great idea - but why create a new plugin? Why not just modify the existing Calendar plugin?

Sir , I have modified the existing plugin code , Just made changes for the new functionallity .Actually , the requirements of our Plugin are more, like it should be configured for smtp server and other mail settings and other database configurations are required. And Web Server should support database and should have appropriate perl modules installed for database operations. If you suggest we can post it with the previous plugin name .

-- AshishNaval - 04 Nov 2004

I was going to ask the same question, but then, this Plugin requires Mysql and sendmail, which raises the required environment for the CalendarPlugin. Could this possibly made as an extension for the CalendarPlugin?

This Plugin does not state the dependencies on the Plugin topic.

Can't this be done without the need for a DB? Maybe Crawfords DBCacheContrib does the trick.

Ashish - I just want to applaud your work on this feature. It's the main reason I was not able to use Calendar plugin on a couple of installations and had to look to non-TWiki solutions.

-- LynnwoodBrown - 04 Nov 2004

Thanks LynnwoodBrown !

FranzJosefSilli: Of course this can be done using DBI_FILE , but if we are using it in organization where there are many employees each managing there own calendar . Using DBI_FILE can be slow.. But I will provide that also with next version . Then there will be choice any version can be picked . whether database or DBI_FILE version.

  • Great to hear! - FJ

Small suggestion: Perform and document the TWiki:Plugins/Benchmark for this Plugin.

-- PeterThoeny - 06 Nov 2004

Ashish, it would be great if you could combine it as an extension on the CalendarPlugin. Otherwise we end up with lots of plugins that do very similar things, and it gets hard for people to choose between them, and even harder for the maintainers. If you can provide the existing functionality of the CalendarPlugin with your extensions as optionally enabled features, that would be terrific!

I tried MailReminderPlugin for email notification of calendar events but its not showing events under dates please advice

-- AnandSamuel - 15 Mar 2007

Why do you need a database to manage those things ???
