Developing Dynamic Email Integration for Calendars and Scheduling
In this meeting, the State Changers aim to solve a problem regarding dynamic email association with a calendar system. They were trying to determine how to replace a placeholder email with a dynamically pulled email from the system based on whoever's calendar they're accessing. It was necessary to have access to the coach's email while iterating over availabilities. The busy and available periods for each individual coach were particularly in focus.
The discussion dwelled heavily on the need to infer the email from the system structure, as it only appears dynamically. Suggestions included adding the email somewhere else in the stack or utilizing a previously determined variable. The group debated on whether the email identification needs to be an input or possibly inferred from the architecture.
Further discussion ensued over the nature of checking available slots and marking them as available or booked based on matching the item's start time. Questions about whether or not they could determine which coach's booking aligns with which slot also arose.
To solve the problem, the group investigated the potential to change the text email to 'availability dot zero dot coach dot email.' and then alter the 'start' variable to match the start time structure of the slot bookings.
Although it was a complex task, the State Changers were optimistic about making progress and understanding how to better evaluate the information they were dealing with. They recognized the potential need for more robust mechanisms to deal with possible failure scenarios. The meeting concluded with a sense of a better direction to dig into and solve the problem effectively with improved knowledge.
