About

Welcome to the App for MLS4.

If anyone is using Google Calendar we now have an app for you. The new Calendar app will allow you to define and unlimited number of Google accounts and then will let you browse the calendar entries from within the software. The iPad and Android sample scenes have been updated with a sample scene. The MainLobby client sample scenes will be updated shortly.

Give it a test and let us know how it works. It is meant to be a quick read-only view of the appointments calendars. Depending on need other features could be added. This app is meant to be the replacement for the legacy MLCalendar plugin.

System Requirements

  • MLServer version 4. or later
  • MainLobby Client ot Tablet scenes.
  • Microsoft Windows (XP, Vista, 7)
  • PC with persistent Internet connection

Installation

Download and run the App from MLInstaller on the primary MLServer PC. You can optionally download the sample scenes for MainLobby and install them on your client PCs.

Restart MLServer.


The Calendar app does not dynamically poll Google for the calendar entries. It needs the user to browse for them. You could set up a timer to simulate the user browsing but then it would be very difficult to write an automation rule that looks for values in the calendar entries because it involves multiple server variables and a rule would have to be written for each variable. We'd have to add more intelligence into the Calendar app to make it easier to build automation rule.



MLServer Variables

App Server Variables=

The App will auto generate variables in MLServer based on the settings you have entered. These are most of the variables, look at the MLS4 Server Variables for current variables generated.
