Regarding the script “Add as Event to Calendar”:
This script does not function the way I would expect it to. For example, I make an appointment to see my dentist on Thursday at 11:30. I type a note in DT: Dentist, Thursday 11:30.
When I use the script “Add as Event to Calendar,” I first get to choose which calendar I want, which is what I expect. Next, I get to select when to be reminded of the event: 1 day, 2 days, 3 days, 1 week…
Problem: I want to enter an event, not a reminder for an event. I want “Dentist” to appear in my calendar for Thursday at 11:30, with perhaps the option of setting an alarm. It would also be nice if I could type a note (“ask about upper right molar”) and have it appear in my calendar as words, not a link which will be useless to when I am looking at my phone, which is usually where I check my calendar. And what happens if my event is four days from today? or ten days?
If I simply wanted to remind myself to call the dentist, this would work fine: Call Dentist. Select Personal Calendar; remind me in 2 days. I don’t care what time I get the reminder (though the Reminders app lets me set a time and a priority and add a note.)
MacJournal has a ‘send event to calendar’ function which works pretty well, though it won’t send any notes, just a link. It will put the event at any date and time. It also has a cute little calendar which I can click to add an entry. The Planbook app I use for lesson plans does it beautifully: all lessons are synced and updated to specific calendars; the lesson notes appear in the calendar.
This is maybe a lot to expect, but it would certainly make DT more useful to me. I understand that DT is not a ‘getting things done’ app, and guess that calendar sync is not a high priorty for most users, but I thought I’d ask.
Thank you for your consideration -
