I did a search and this was last asked back in 2009 and at the time the answer was no. Has there been a change to allow a website to contain more than one calendar, preferably with permission view control. Example: A public event calendar, and a admin area staff calendar.
 
This is an important feature I will require for my latest website and any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
 
Thanks

Event types support permissions.

  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.

@Chris, so you can have a calendar with events that only show based on permissions?  Like everyone see's the calendar but those without admin permission don't see admin events?

yes. And you can also use filters to limit displayed event types, according to what calendar link is used.

Thanks for feedback and I'll take a look at the permissions however i think this would make high level users (staff) see both public and staff related events due to having full permissions? I know i can hide staff level events from lower members, but as an admin they will see everything though i only want them to see staff related events when viewing the staff calendar and public events when viewing the public calendar. There is no degree of separation for high level users unless the permissions work differently on the calendar then it dose for the rest of the site. I will take a look in any case and hopefully find this to be a solution.

Play with the event filters under the calendar -- and then use those generated URLs as menu links.

Yes this is similar to what I was talking with Namaste in this thread View topic: Namaste from NY - ocPortal.com

By making custom event types you can really do some neat things with Catalogue views and permissions.
