I currently have a web schedule and outlook schedule for myself. Keeping them both maintained is a pain in the butt.
I would like someone to write a simple application that would allow me to convert a calendar export data file to a nice browsable html file. I don't care what the application is written in. Outlook can export to: CSV, PST, TSV, dBase, Access, Excell, and Foxpro files. Keep in mind I have a pc, so the program will need to run on a pc. Preferrably in the windows environment.
1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.
2) Installation package that will install the software (in ready-to-run condition) on the platform(s) specified in this bid request.
3) Exclusive and complete copyrights to all work purchased. (No GPL, 3rd party components, etc. unless all copyright ramifications are explained AND AGREED TO by the buyer on the site).
4) I'm not very good with code and CGI, so the coder will have to include full instructions right down to the chmodding and perl configuration if required of how to get it to work on my website. If I am unable to get it to work, the coder must help me install it onto the site.
1) I want colors to be customizable somehow. Entering hex color codes into a config file would be fine.
2) Good, understandable english in uncompiled code.
3) If its a cgi script or something, it should embed easily into an html file.
4) When someone visits the page or cgi file, the current day should always be displayed initially.
5) I'd like it to resemble a typical day log...
a) Current date listed up top.
b) Time listed in the far left column, 08:00, 09:00, etc. in 24-hour time.
c) Subject field from Microsoft Outlook Calendar listed in the right column.
d) Since it only displays one day per page, some type of easy navigation to go ahead days, weeks, months, years, etc. Maybe a little pop-up calendar to select the date or something.
5) Microsoft Outlook only exports scheduled times which means no data comes out for available times. This confuses my students. I would like for all hour time-blocks with nothings scheduled to automatically say "available" in that subject column.
6) If not too much of a hassle, "available", "scheduled", and "unavailable", should have different colored backgrounds. THe script or what not can figure it out from a word or character in the subject field, whatever is easiest.
7) I'm really flexible, if you can do it without converting, thats great, make a script that will reference my excell file or one of those file types and fantastic, whatever works.
8) I don't care about this idea or copyrights, so sell it and get rich after you've finished it for me, I don't care.
FILES: A picture of the datelog style I'm looking for. Again, extremely flexible, just the jist with time on the left, subject on the right... Also included is an example of my excell export of the calendar data. Note that I duplicate the start and end time in the subject area. I wouldn't have to do that if this proggie works, so don't worry about getting rid of the duplication. whatever is in the subject field will go in that right column.
Windows XP. and Microsoft Outlook XP.
