In conjunction with the first ever CiviCon happening in Canberra on Monday 23rd October. There will be a developer day on the Sunday prior to that day. There will also be an opportunity for international developers to join in through a Go To Meeting hangout. The developer day will be held at the Agileware office. 4/55-57 Lathlain Street, Belconnen, ACT 2617. The Day will start at 9am. Anyone interested should get in touch with Justin Freeman from Agileware.
There has been some discussion in my organisation around possibly streamling the process and improvement process in regards to CiviEvents and Inviting people to come to the event.
The senario is this, We have end users who create events such as come to our Phonebanking evening. Yet there is no way through the event create / configuration process to then create an invite email or similar that could go to a target group. Say there is a group already created of people who have expressed an interest in phone banking.
Finally 4.7.beta1 has been released. Its now your chance to bring out your inner Sherlock and help make the software we all use and love even better.
The Australian Greens developed 2 new custom searches to enable us to do data clean-up and to monitor for spam records that were coming into our system, mainly through the Drupal user registration form.
The first search (addresses needing fixing) has a number of different combinations to find different issues with addresses. This allows to check for where there is a state set but that doesn't match the set country or where the postcode isn't correct for Australian postcodes. All Australian Postcodes are numerical and are 3 or 4 digits in length.
