Allow users to supply "available gaming dates" in a list. The GM could access a list by day that indicates names or initials for players that indicated to see if there is consensus and then officially create an appointment.

    MaiestasNoctis we have a list of suggestions I'll update based on your input. Thanks for the idea.

    I believe most groups coordinate through external chat, or messaging. What brought about your idea?

    I'm probably bias because I worked for years on a scheduling application
    for public safety and am a project manager. :-)

    I've found that although you can text, use email and even use the OP
    forum feature, all that communication is still "disconnected text".
    With a feature that allows players to 'submit your schedule' to the DM,
    it helps keep communications cleaner and also helps the DM by having the
    tool visually compile dates that work best for everyone, than sorting
    thru communications.

    Yah, not a big deal, but one reason I subscribed to Ascendant is for the
    Calendar function. If nothing else, if there was a feature to 'not
    send' an email every time I update the calendar, that would be great.
    This would allow me to mark down Preferences, but not officially
    schedule the game till I we reached consensus.

    I've taken down your suggestions. Thank you for your diligence in improving OP. If you have any other suggestions for improving the calendar please let me know.
