      Description

      Allow users (or only some users? could require a new capability) the option of creating user events that are "shared" with other users. Like the ability to send and accept appointments in Novell Groupwise.
      The user creating the event would select other users on the site to share the event with. This could be configurable to only allow appointments to be shared with certainly users, e.g. teachers or coursemates.
      The event would be created on the first user's calendar, as a user event.
      A message would be sent to all users the event is being shared with, including a link for them to accept the event. When they click the link, the event is created on their calendar as a user event.

            We would like this feature for Moodle 2. We would also like to have role based calendar events. So for instance an event that ALL users with teacher role can see.

            The only way I ever seem to be able to get version 2 added to old 1.9 issues is to clone them, following which, the clone gets closed and version 2 is added to the original issue. Any issue that does not include affected version/s 2 seems to be ignored. So it is really important that 2.x is added to the affected versions.

            I have my finger on the clone button and I'm going to press it in 5 4 3 ...

            I've added a current version to the affected versions field.

            To increase the likelihood of this coming about, the number of votes would need to be higher.

            We're also open to patches.

            We have detected that this issue has been inactive for over two years and also did not collect many votes. It is possible that it has been already implemented in a more recent version of Moodle, or it is not highly demanded. There are unlimited number of ways Moodle functinality can be expanded and improved but we would like to concentrate on the features that will benefit majority of users, and which can not be implemented as plugins. If you have a suggestion for improving Moodle core, and there is no open issue for it in the tracker, please start a new forum discussion to see how many other users agree with you, and then create a new issue providing as many details as possible.
