Is it possible to add a Team Calendars event by email?

Andrei [errno] Community Champion Aug 28, 2014

either using stock TC or via 3rd party add-on? Can't seem to locate any info in the docs.
thanks!

smth like : https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/biz.artemissoftware.plugins.confluence.send-email-to-page

EDIT:

scenario...

  • In my email client I send a calendar invite to my Confluence-monitored email box, which then retrieves the invite, parses it and adds a new TeamCal event to a particular calendar (parsed) + adds a description from the body of the invite.
  • just a rough idea... - this way I could "add" a ConfluenceTeamCal "account" to my Outlook meeting and automatically have this event in the appropriate TeamCal

Hi Andrei,


Like Spense said, we already have a feature request for it. Actually I was raised the feature request, as it could be a good feature for Team Calendars.
However isn't likely that we'll implement it soon:

To be honest, I can't see us right now implementing this feature request in the foreseeable future given

  • all the hundreds of other highly requested features
  • the amount of manual knowledge required on the format to create the event
  • the fact that Confluence does not yet even support creating content via email (CONF-5002).

cheers

Hello Andrel,
First, let me see if we are on the same page. What exactly would you like to do? Create an event by your e-mail client or share a link of an event by e-mail?
If you want to share an event by e-mail, what you could do is share the calendar sending its link through e-mail. However, the person who receives it would be able to see other events as well.
In case you want to create an event through your e-mail client, would you mind giving me further details on how you'd like to do it and also an example?
Let me know if have any other questions.
Cheers,

added more flavor to my original question. thanks!

Hello again Andrel :)

Thank you for clarifying your environment. I could understand better the situation, but I’m afraid it's not possible do what you want to with the bundled-plugin.
I also searched for plugins on the marketplace, but I didn’t find any that could do it. I’m not saying it's not possible, but probably you will need to create a script or contact an expert to help you with this customisation if it’s a priority for you.
Good luck,
Renato Rudnicki
