• Taking a step back, what I'm really after is an outcome of showing all club events in some kind of calendar.

    So the equivalent of https://www.lfgss.com/search/?type=event­&eventAfter=0&sort=oldest does exactly that for one-off events...

    but weekly chaingang/hills/clubrun don't appear, because to do so you'd need to create each one individually. Which as you say would flood the forum.

    If there was a magical way of creating /editing a Microcosm event once, but it occuring in the view linked above multiple times, similar in Outlook, Google Calendar, etc, that would be ideal 😉

    One option would be to use Google Calendar or similar, but unless we put the recurring weekly events in there, and had an automatic way of pulling in a feed of all the Microcosm events,we'd either have:

    • two calendars to look at instead of one, which doesn't achieve the desired outcome

    • unsustainable duplication of work, manual copy and paste etc

    • if we used GCal only - lose all the features and forum integration of Microcosm events. Which doesn't seem sensible at all.

    So, right now I'm wondering if there is/could be an easy way of auto-populating a GCal with the one off events from Microcosm...

    ...and if there isn't, then keep status quo, i.e. weekly events are each handled in a regular thread. As they are on LFGSS.

    That one

    The first one sounds unnecessarily complicated to me, but I am a Luddite

    Also who in BCC wants this, or it just an exercise to see if it can be done, because you want to know if it can be done?

    I just wonder if anyone in BCC really cares about having a calendar of events given that most people know the routines/they are easy to get into the swing of if you are new and any big/one off events are publicised well on the forum, in the normal way?

    This type of opinion is probably why I no longer run the club, so by all means just ignore me :)
