Just a quick note to say that Steve over at sb3d.com has created a great PHP class to access the Jotlet API. This is a great way to start integrating Jotlet.net into your web application, plugin, module, widget, life-changing-application, so head over to our developer section and check it out!
Just a quick note to let you guys know that we released a small update this morning. When looking at your day view, you’ll notice a brand new print button! This’ll pop up a super handy printout of your day’s events, tasks, and notes. Thanks to all of you who’ve requested this feature! If you’ve got a feature you’d like to see implemented in Jotlet, let us know!
Besides the new print view, the majority of this week’s changes are under the hood. We’ve been busy optimizing Jotlet to load faster and run faster. This is round 1 of a 2 part performance update, so expect speed and performance to continue to improve.
I’m excited to say that our to-do list is nearly never-ending, so be prepared for more and more updates coming soon!
Fresh off the heels of our “Publish” feature, we are happy to announce the public launching of our developer API!
Thanks to those who have requested an API ahead of time and have been testing it for us. We really appreciate it!
This iteration of our API allows you to:
- add, edit, delete events / tasks / calendars
- obtain minimal profile information (time zone and date stamp preferences, not private information)
- load daily notes
Our developer page has all the documentation you need to get started. We’ll be upgrading this portion of our site soon with lots of examples, a forum, and of course, featured widgets and tools from you!
We’re really looking forward to any cool tools you guys can build with the API. When you finish your Jotlet powered masterpiece… let us know and we’ll feature it on our developer’s page
Less than a week ago we released our Publish feature, which lets you easily add your Jotlet schedule to any webpage. Today, I’m excited to say that you can publish any number of your color-coded Jotlet calendars to a custom URL on Jotlet.net.
Check out the sample here!
You can even publish different calendars to different URLs from the same account! This means you can publish and manage you family’s reunion schedule, your poker-night schedule, and your cycling group’s riding schedule all in the same Jotlet.net account.
So publish away, and spread the word!
You may not be aware, but Microsoft Outlook is broken, and Microsoft admits it.
The problem stems from a 2005 law that changed when Daylight Saving Time would start and end in the US this year, and unfortunately Microsoft Outlook doesn’t take this new law into account. So what does this mean? All of your appointments in Outlook will be off by 1 hour for a few weeks this spring, and another week this fall, unless you download and install a cumbersome “patch” program to fix it. This boils down to missed appointments and confusion, and all because of 1 silly bug in your desktop software.
You’ll be happy to hear that Jotlet has had this new DST law pre-programmed in our code for months, and we’re more than ready for the brand new Daylight Saving Time this year. And what’s even better, we regularly update Jotlet with new features and fixes automatically. No cumbersome downloads, no patches, no confusion. Jotlet just works.
Oh, and happy Valentine’s Day! We love you guys
We’re super excited to announce the release of our new “Publish” feature! You can find this feature under the “advanced” button in the top right (also home of “import”, “export” and our most excellent Netvibes widget).
“Publish” is a feature we’ve gotten the most requests for recently, so we made it priority #1. We’ve put quite a bit of thought (and love!) into this feature, and we’re sure you’ll love its simplicity and functionality.
One major aspect we focused on is security. Your data’s security is very important to us, so we wanted to create a simple way to manage multiple websites as well as stop a particular publication whenever you want. We’re pleased with our results and we’re confident you’ll enjoy it as well!
We have a publish tutorial up now to help get you started, but hopefully it’s so easy to use you won’t need it =).
If anyone would like to create a Wordpress widget or plug-in please let us know! We’d love your help!
Also, if you’d like to request a feature, or have any questions about current features, feel free to contact us. We’ll answer promptly I promise!
