Hi all. I'm trying to put together a routing script based on my customer appointments. I'm trying to scrape the Venue: from the next upcoming events and put them in a mapping script I got my hands on . The problem is if I go to http://mysite/calendar/views/upcoming.php I get a restricted error so, trying to use a dom scrape method wont work. I've also tried A few other methods but the structure of this script is confusing to me. I'm a total novice by the way.  Any Ideas?

Lastly, Is there a way for the upcoming to only show current day instead of multiple days? If I do get this to work and pull data from upcoming, it would be pointless (for Me) to plan a route today that includes tomorrows clients.

Thanks thump_up

I was able to accomplish what I needed by messing with lcsbar.php. I also found the look ahead option in admin settings. wink

It sounds like a neat idea, routing based on appointments. Google maps does allow you to create a route based on multiple destinations so I think it would be handy for a few different businesses / companies.

Perhaps you can post a link or screen shot of what it looks like in action?

Hi Dan,

I've got it set to pull in appointments on current days. All I need to do is hit calculate route and set off. I was geting tired of Zig-Zagging around town in total randomness and wasting gas (Big, heavy, v8 boxtruck)sad

Here it is in action:

Hi Octoma,

That is really neat. If you have multiple users will it work for each user's schedule for the day and do the same thing?

There are a few businesses like cleaning service's that visit homes or businesses to do cleaning where I could see that being helpful.

The only thing I don't understand is the time would enter into it. Say I have something set for 1:00 because they aren't available before that time but it is close to my 9:30 appointment. The route would take me there too early. To avoid that do you have them all set for the same time?
