I’m not sure if this is possible, but I’m looking for a way to show multiple Outlook calendar events in a ticker.
Currently I’m following these steps (http://xibo.org.uk/2014/05/27/using-datasets-to-display-meeting-room-bookings/) to show meeting room appointments in a ticker. I export the Outlook calendar via powershell to a csv file and then manually import it into a Dataset every few days.
Is there a better way, with less manual work? I can automate the powershell export of Outlook to csv or another format, but that’s where I’m stuck.
Can I schedule Xibo to import a csv file to overwrite this DataSet on a nightly basis?
Or is there a format I can use to export the appointments in some type of RSS file that Xibo can reference easily? I tried creating an .xml file for an RSS feed but it has non-standard fields that I couldn’t get to work in a ticker. I can save this exported file (csv or xml) on a web location that the local Xibo server can reference.
Any ideas? We’re currently on 1.80rc2, haven’t jumped to 1.80rc3 yet but if there is a solution for this in rc3 I’ll try upgrading sooner rather than later.
