*** zOnny has joined #novawebdev16:00
nrcernaGm jelkner !16:00
ubuntouristHey all.16:00
PAldeaGood morning.16:00
nrcernaIs anyone missing? or can we start now?16:01
*** SITarabuta has joined #novawebdev16:01
jelknerwe should always start on time, nrcerna 16:01
nrcernaOk first item: Two (or more) calendar types? Two (or more) event types? (public/external, private/internal) 16:01
ubuntouristSo, It occurs to me that organizations have private events for members and events for the public.16:02
jelknerthat's a correct observation, ubuntourist 16:02
ubuntouristShould the calendar system allow for both types (maybe it does and I missed it.)16:02
jelknerbut we need to wait until it happens to implement it16:02
jelknernot yet16:03
jelknershould be customer driven16:03
jelknerwe need a user story from someone who needs it16:03
abuchholzfile an issue. ubuntourist16:03
ubuntouristSimilarly, when the public comes to a meeting, without LO login credentials, it might be nice to check them in, to get a head count16:03
ubuntourist(or contact info).16:03
SITarabutahow would we do that ubuntourist16:04
SITarabutawithout any kind of authentication16:04
jelknerthat is a great ORA story16:04
jelknerthey would love that!16:04
SITarabutathey would refresh the page and get 500000 check in16:04
jelknerbut let's talk later about how to handle the data it would generate16:04
ubuntouristSITarabuta, well, you missed Little Brother. ;-) The agenda item for that said "Tricky, that one." ;-)16:05
nrcernaOk 16:05
jelkneri think Google and Facebook auth will eliminate the need16:05
ubuntouristAnd finally, an "easy?" addition: A URL field for events. 16:05
nrcernayoure talking about this ubuntourist : Two types of check-in? (member w/ login, guest w/o login)? Tricky, that one. (ubuntourist)16:05
jelknersince it will become so easy to just create an account16:05
jelknerthat's what we really want16:05
ubuntouristReasoning: We could have calendar / event entries with a URL like "" ;-)16:06
jelknerubuntourist, let's file an issue together for that after16:06
jelkneri want that too16:07
ubuntouristACTION reads over all the interruptions...16:07
nrcernaOk the next item: Brief update on marking, email this morning and where should i host documents, articles, blogs, etc? (jelkner)16:07
jelknerok, real quick16:08
jelkner"selling our business" is going to be about engaging with the communities we want to serve16:08

jelknerACTION done16:10
nrcernaThanks jelkner 16:10
nrcernaThe last item: New features on Business tracker16:10
nrcernathats me16:10
nrcernaWe are working on the new Business tracker feature that is going to allow us to track project / task and hours worked, also assign that task to the developers and make the workflow easier16:11
nrcernaand this it would help us a lot to generate an invoice once the projects are finished 16:11
nrcernaACTION done16:11

nrcernaAnything else?16:12
jelknerjust a request16:13
nrcernayes jelkner ?16:13
ubuntouristBTW jelkner, nrcerna Either of you look at the Google Business thing I sent? It shows evidence of ... people? ... bots? looking at our profile, and suggested making marketing posts about our products / services... You're "The Marketeers" (TM). 😉16:13

nrcernaThank you everyone16:14
jelknerSee y'all next Thursday, if not before16:14
nrcernasee you on thursday16:14
ubuntouristSITarabuta, as to how to accomplish checkin: Maybe not "self-checkin" Many meetings have a greeter / sign in / donation table.16:14
jelknerubuntourist, can we move back to Jitsi?16:15
ubuntouristSITarabuta, maybe someone sitting at that table could do the dirty work.16:15
jelknerwhere we can talk at length about plans for the week?16:15
nrcernazOnny, AEA Its ready right?16:15

jelknernope, it doesn't ubuntourist 17:05
jelknereven logging out and the jitsi icon persists17:05
jelknerif i log out from the system and log back in, its gone17:06
jelknerjust a data point, ubuntourist 17:06
jelknerthought you might want to know17:06
ubuntouristjelkner, good to know. I'm not using budgie. So, I'm not sure what the icon indicates.19:18
ubuntouristjelkner, You're using chromium as the browser, I'm guessing. My chromium is set to "run in the background" after closing.19:18
ubuntouristjelkner, and I need to explicitly right-click its icon in the taskbar and click "exit" to fully close it -- (or logout of my computer completely).19:19
nrcernaACTION brb at 219:19
