Welcome to the world of monetizing roach motels. You data checks in and never checks out. Check out the up-sells.
In this case, the free version of nearly every app has problems. Jake and I made various attempts at tying google and wix together without success. Impact of paid tier?
2023.05.04 event management assessment:
Wix has better visual integrations
- sizes, layout stability, colors
Wix Events Calendar and Events & Ticket systems aren't integrated. Requires using wix automations First step into internal workflows. This also appears to be the path to facebook integrations.
Google calendars take up a lot of space.
Distinct functional requirements could drive event data being entered into multiple systems
This page is organized by storage system
Standard internal custom table and display: clipping issues, no
integration w/ nothing.
This approach uses a central dataset (empty dateTest). The dataset icon can be copied and moved across pages to provide access, but not across websites.
The volunteer database uses this storage system for wConnect and wVolunteer collections. Forms across the various pages all contribute these common tables.
This table interface has very limited controls and suffers from clipping issues unless you give it generous whitespace (this is a general platform bias)
This table interface has problems keeping the data current. Even adding new rows won't cause old rows to show accurate data.
2023.05.18 The date problem is consistent and may be related to timezone settings. Chaging the column to text should make this tool usable. Yeah, an event manager that doesn't use dates...
For next election data, the current target is a google subcalendar linked to an appropriate interface.
Each copy of this table app has it's own data
Better interface than content manager tables.
Not sure where local data is stored.
Can connect to a google sheet , but requires a connection to a public table. Also won't update automatically. Requires a manual update.
For the next elections calendar, for exampe, public info isn't so much an issue. Public write access would be.
Generated url is for downladed .csv, not an active table
Nicest compact display. No dorky RSVP button.
Can connect to google, but authenticates through Jake's phone
Needs calendard segmented
Different dataset from Events & Tickets.
Looking a entering events into google calendar and wix meetings & events module
Third party app?
Events on home page calendar showed up here, initially, but now new events aren't showing up on this page.
Where's data stored?
additional fees after 1 year
Events & Tickets
This is the default events management app
No google integration
What's Google look like?
gcals have inflexible and unstable formatting behaviors
