Expose custom title for calendar option in date field
it would be so cool to have custom titles shown in the calendar when exposing a date field to it. For example we have on-boarding candidates with fields for 1st interview, 2nd interview and so on and it would be great to show in the calendar that this date is for this specific interview and not only exposing the default field like the name of the candidate.
Best would be to have a calculated field we can configure like: "1st Interview: " + @Name
You could do this by creating a separate app (maybe called interviews) with a calculation title, a reference field(back to the main item), a category field, and a date field. With globiflow, you could automate the creation of the app items so it is less cumbersome. You would get the functionality you are looking for without waiting for Podio to release the capability. If you would like help, pm me.
You could also have a category field called Interview Stage that had 1st, 2nd, 3rd. 4th, 5th etc as the categories, then use a calculation as your first field
@Interview Stage + " | " + @Name
In addition if you had a different colour for each category you can now link that colour to the calendar item
I have a similar issue: My apps' first field is a calculation field that I want to use as calendar title. A couple of fields further down I have a category field. In the category field settings I checked "Color in Calendar". What happens now is that calendar entries are colored according to the selected category item (which is good), but the title in calendar view is the text of the selected category item (which is not what I want). AFAIK Podio shall always pick the first field as calendar entry? Does anyone have suggestions on this?
