[SOLVED] Re: Separate events with same title are ignored

Post by dbutcher » Fri Feb 07, 2014 1:40 pm

Hi Dan,
VueMinder Pro 11.0.1
We are subscribing to *.ics files on a network share. Each *.ics file contains a number of events that represent production orders for our shop floor. The "Title" of the event is the part number that we need to produce.
It is possible to have more than one production order for the same part. When this happens, VueMinder only displays the last event. However, since each event in the *.ics file has a unique ID number, we hope to see all the events displayed in the calendar.
I have attached a sample file with two events for title "0395-Z".
Please let me know if you need any other information.
Thanks,
Dave

Hi Dave, thanks for the feedback. The behavior you're seeing is due to code that is intended to prevent duplicate events from appearing in the calendar. However, it appears in this case the code is a little too aggressive in trying to prevent duplicates.

I've corrected this for the next version. VueMinder will add the duplicate event as long as at least its start or end time, location, or description is different than the existing event of the same name.

Thanks Dan.
I'm just confirming that upgrading to 11.0.2 corrects the problem we were having.
Great work!
