Title: Google Calendar - Limiting Display by Time/Date.
Post by: Science Central on May 08, 2019, 09:23:57 PM
Greetings,

We're running signage studio 6.2.22.  We're using a Google Calendar component and have it linked to show only the calendar appointments that occur that day.  It doesn't show the appointments for the day before or the day after.

Our question:  Is there a way to set it up so that it doesn't display calendar appointments that have occurred in the past.  For example, if my calendar appointment is from 10:00 am to 10:30 am, and the current time is 10:20 am, I want the calendar appointment to appear on our sign.  If the current time is 11:00 am, I want the calendar appointment to not show up on our sign.

Thank you for your assistance.

P.S. Our calendar appointment is at the top of the screen in this image.  Sorry for the size of the image, I don't know how to make it smaller on this forum.

the current implementation does not support such filtering.  it can only do filtering in "days" but we may probably have other filtering in the future

I see that when I add the Component for Google Calendar to the Timeline, it has a "Filters" section with three columns (Event, Condition, Field).  When I click the plus symbol, it adds "==" to the Condition column.

How does this filter work?  Is there any documentation?  Is this what you mean when you say "it can only do filtering in 'days'"?

the Filter group is for all JSON based component but it is not used in Google Calendar

Filter is used in conjunction with JSON Player specifically
