The TutsPlus.com site has updated their "Building Your Startup" series with their latest tutorial showing you how to build advanced scheduling commands allowing for things like repeating meetings, updating the meeting details and rescheduling.
I also began to realize that the ability to adjust meetings easily after they've been scheduled could make or break the Meeting Planner brand. [...] In today's tutorial, I'll cover expanding the navigation bar using Bootstrap and the basics of building some of the advanced scheduling features within Meeting Planner. Next week, I'll review building the more complex feature for participants to request change(s) and for others to accept or decline them.
He starts with the frontend, updating the navigation bar to include links to other functionality for meeting changes, repeating and showing planning activities for the meeting. He uses Bootstrap's single-button dropdowns for this and includes the code to add them to the UI with a bit of code in the view. He then gets into the main functionality of these changes showing the code to:
- make changes to a current meeting
- reschedule a meeting
- repeat a meeting
- resend invitations
The next part in the series will take a look into social engineering and UX needs for the application along with some other smaller changes.
