does this integrate with evolution?

Asked by Rolf Leggewie on 2008-07-11

It would be awesome to share the data entered in the evolution calendar. I really hate to enter all kinds of information in a multitude of places

The clock in the system tray does share data with evolution.

hope that solves your question.

I take that as a 'no' ;-)

Well, then what does alarm clock offer that the clock in the system tray does not? I'd assume it handles the task better and more focused. And then we'd be back to the question of tapping into the evolution data. Can't that be done? Is it planned?

Thank you for the rapid answer, btw

No, you cannot share *local* data, and I am not aware of plans to do so. You can share a calendar if, for example, you use Google calendar -- in this case, the calendar data is actually on the Google servers, and available anywhere.

And yes, I guess the "take as a 'no'" was absolutely correct.

Thanks hggdh, that solved my question.

Oh, I am VERY sorry:( I just focus on emails I am getting, I am not looking here very often.

And, actually, you want it to share data with Evolution, eg. tasks? I think it is possible to implement this. Everything is stored in ~/.evolution directory in plain text, so I can tell it IS possible to implement. But it's a long way to implement this.

yes, sharing tasks and appointments with evolution would be rather cool.
