Roadmap

Here, a list (non-exhaustive) with the features and functions (free or commercial) that will be implemented into iCagenda.

It is not always easy to plan the development and addition of new features to come. Some features in this roadmap require others to be developed before. Currently, no exact date of delivery for each one, but estimated period of developpement.

You can express your wishes and ideas on this topic: http://www.joomlic.com/forum/icagenda-announcements/330.

We take user contributions and requests very seriously. Everything you share back with us, even if it is a bug report or a new/improved feature you have written, helps us improving our software. Feel free to open a new topic on the JoomliC forum, or open a ticket support, if you have an active Pro subscription.

Thank you for your patience if sometimes we can not respond in a very short time. We try to do our best!

Get involved now. Help shape iCagenda the way you need it to be.

And keep an eye on this roadmap!

 

Roadmap

Please remember all dates are tentative and estimated features for each release subject to modification.
 

ANNOUNCEMENT

Previously planned 3.7 version is now set as 3.8.
The 3.7 release is mainly focused on some new options/changes to help GDPR REGULATION (EU) 2016/679 compliance.
Remember that the GDPR regulations apply to users of any web site from the EU (residents). Similar regulations exist in Australia and elsewhere.
Privacy Tools Suite from Joomla 3.9 (see here) and iCagenda will help you to provide the best pratice for your visitors/customers.
Note for Joomla 2.5 sites: it's really time to upgrade to Joomla 3!

Current Release

3.7  March 2018 > May 2018 3.7.0 > November 2018 (3.7.x) CURRENT (see 3.8 for upcoming features)

Warning: The minimum Joomla version is raised to 3.2.4

Privacy tools to help facilitate privacy (GDPR) related items

  • 3.7.0 Privacy by default changes for iCagenda settings to comply with GDPR (As some options exist already to achieve this task (access, terms...), we will write a documentation with some tips on how to set existing options to comply new GDPR rules).
  • 3.7.0 New Privacy Policy Consent option for registration and submission form in frontend (The GDPR requires Privacy consent to be stored with date of consent, so it will be the main difference with current ToS option of iCagenda not storing this consent, and was only blocking the registration/submission validation if not accepted).
  • 3.7.2 Review on some existing functionnalities (Export csv, delete data, filtering admin list...) from admin, to check what could be improved in the 3.7 serie to help site manager/owner to do actions on user requests (delete, modify, get specific user data...).
  • 3.7.5 Integration with Joomla 3.9, which will integrate a Privacy Tool Suite in the Joomla CMS. View Announcement.
  • 3.7.0 First version to support Joomla 3 only.

  • Postponed 3.8 Possibility for user to unregister from an event (this is not a requirement of GDPR as this could be done by user contacting the owner/webmaster of the website (Your privacy policy may already allow this possibility). But it was an already planned new feature, that will give you a more easy and friendly way for your user to cancel own registration).
    Note on 3.7 : partial integration already in place for cancellation per event for a registered user. But for a full integration, it will need some other refactory planned for iCagenda 3.8: registration button, possibility for visitor to cancel with a control key, refactory of the user registration confirmation email for more flexibility and simplicity (mainly for custom emails which changes will have to be done in a new minor version (3.8) with database transitions).
