RTx::Calendar - Calendar for RT due tasks


This document describes version 0.06 of RTx::Calendar


This RT extension provides a calendar view for your tickets and your reminders so you see when is your next due ticket. You can find it in the menu Search->Calendar.

There's a portlet to put on your home page (see Prefs/MyRT.html)

You can also enable ics (ICal) feeds for your default calendar and all your private searches in Prefs/Calendar.html. Authentication is magic number based so that you can give those feeds to other people.

You can find screenshots on http://gaspard.mine.nu/dotclear/index.php?tag/rtx-calendar


If you upgrade from 0.02, see next part before.

You need to install those three modules :

  * Date::ICal
  * Data::ICal
  * DateTime::Set

Install it like a standard perl module

 perl Makefile.PL
 make install

If your RT is not in the default path (/opt/rt3) you must set RTHOME before doing the Makefile.PL


To use MyCalendar portlet you must add MyCalendar to $HomepageComponents in etc/RT_SiteConfig.pm like that :

  Set($HomepageComponents, [qw(QuickCreate Quicksearch MyCalendar
     MyAdminQueues MySupportQueues MyReminders RefreshHomepage)]);

To enable private searches ICal feeds, you need to give CreateSavedSearch and LoadSavedSearch rights to your users.


A small help section is available in /Prefs/Calendar.html


As I've change directory structure, if you upgrade from 0.02 you need to delete old files manually. Go in RTHOME/share/html (by default /opt/rt3/share/html) and delete those files :

  rm -rf Callbacks/RTx-Calendar
  rm Tools/Calendar.html

RTx-Calendar may work without this but it's not very clean.


  • compatible only with RT 3.6 for the moment. If someone need compatibility with 3.4 I can work on this. And I will work on 3.7 compatibility later.
