Categories from tags 6 Months, 3 Weeks ago  
I love Rainlendar

Yes I really do - but for one detail:
since the are no iOS and android version, I have to resort to a different calendar program on my mobile phone. And none of these (at least none of the good ones I found) support categories the way Rainlendar does.

It would be really great to be able to set Rainlendar categories from any calendar program using tags in the title or in the description of an event.
I think, this has been asked for before - and rejected because of the sync problems that arise from having the category settings saved in two places.
Wouldn't the following be a largely failproof solution to that problem if Railendar had a functionality like this :

Code:

check the description for tags like [Ideas] 

check if the event has a category set for the same name
if not, delete the respective tag

check the description for tags like [+Ideas]
if a category of the same name exists
   change the tag to [Ideas]
   and add a category Ideas
else delete the tag

check the description for tags like [-Ideas]
delete the tag and the category Ideas as well as any [Ideas] tags



Please let me know what you think and if this could be implemented.

Cheers, Beat

Something like that could probably work. I'll add this to my backlog and see if it could be implemented in the future.

That would be fantastic.
Especially, if the future wouldn't be too far away.
I'd even be prepared to accelerate this with a financial incentive, if that helps...
