How To's / Re: changing domains
« on: November 17, 2008, 06:47:56 pm »
Changing the ROOT_URL on the config.php file should be enough if you keep OpenGoo on the same server. If you move OpenGoo to another server then you would need to migrate the database, but that doesn't seem to be the case.

No, it's not. Thanks!

How To's / changing domains
« on: November 17, 2008, 04:47:42 pm »
Right now I'm testing out OpenGoo on a temporary sub-domain.

If it meets my needs, I need/want to move it to another sub-domain... and it's looking like it will, at least for now.

What do I need to be concerned with if I do so?  Is there maybe just some minimal changes to the config file I need to make to point to the new domain, or is there anything hidden anywhere that I need to be concerned about?

missing ) after argument list

I just had this error pop up, will try the fixes mentioned.. but FYI for those who haven't noticed, it seems to be tied to using an apostrophe in your event name...

I noticed it when trying to add "New Year's Day" to my calendar.

How To's / Permissions within a group
« on: November 17, 2008, 02:09:43 pm »
Ok,I've been playing with permissions, trying to figure out the best way to balance seeing each other calendars and such, and allowing for private entry...

This morning, could go to a user and under their permissions see every other user... and they were checked. I had made all the user's default workspaces a sub-space of a company space.

As part of testing, I removed for each user access to the different workspaces other than their own. Now when I go to try and add them back, the only one I can see in any of their permission settings is my own (the admin), and not even theirs.

Is this a bug, or did I mes something up?

You should talk to the folks at see if they wold be interested in collaborating... maybe make an @mail module for OpenGoo?

Feature requests / Adding Contact to Company
« on: November 13, 2008, 04:29:54 pm »
How about when adding a contact to a company that the address and phone number and such get filled from the company info...

If it's different for that person, you have to type it in, no biggie. but most of the time it won't be different and this would be a huge time saver.

there's nobody here that can tell you your host name... and the username and password would be something you would have set up or assigned when you created the database...

check with your hosting company for help on those.

oh, would like to be able to "turn off" display of the workspaces a contact is in on the list view... I have subcontractors and clients that may be in 5-10 workspaces, that could get kinda hard to read I think.

Ideas / My "Must Haves" and other suggestions
« on: November 13, 2008, 01:47:02 pm »
Just started poking around with this yesterday, right now I use eGroupWare for my contact management along with the calendar and such... and use ProjectPier for a client center for our construction project management.

This has the potential to replace both with an all-in-one solution, but there are a couple "must-haves" I think for me before I could fully move...

1) custom fields in contacts.
I have hundreds of subcontractors in eGroupWare, their categories allow me to split them up according to type of work they do (painters vs plumbers for example). I've figured out I can use Workspaces to basically do the same thing. But, I need custom fields under the contacts for a couple things... we currently rate each sub on a scale of 1 to 5, and I also have a custom field for if they prefer to receive bid invites from me by email, fax, or if they are on our mailing list.

2) data export
along with sending those bid invitations out, I need to be able to export a group of data so I can cut and paste the fax numbers in to my fax software, and do other things like create mail-merge for printing labels (like for upcoming Christmas card mailings).

Other things that would be great...
data import - I have a couple thousand contacts in my current setup, the prospect of retyping all of those.... yuck.

When adding a new user, I need to manually click every workspace to add them to... most of our users will get access to all... a selection all/none would be nice.

Ummm... I think I had others, but can't think of them right now, will post again as they come to me.

a subdomain is the part before the domain name... like "" is a subdomain of

You could also do the same thing with a subfolder, sorta... they could have done

subdomains are frequently used to help separate distinct areas... rather than lumping them under the main domain.

for example, my personal site is, instead of using subfolders for my photos gallery I have the subdomain

I do the same stuff with our work items. I don't want this to be part of my main site at, so for now it's set up at - and that's where I went to with my browser to set it up.

If you did yours in a sub folder, such as - then that is where you need to go to do the install.

I just did mine yesterday... after uploading the files to a newly created sub-domain, creating the database from my host's control panel, I just pointed my browser to the location I uploaded the files too and was directed to the install page.

That page seems to take care of adding the database tables and creating your admin account, shouldn't need to mess with going into phpmyadmin or editing the config file manually.

Just installed on DH myself.

I created a subdomain for testing it out on first... created a new database... uploaded the files, browsed to the subdomain and went through the install script.

It was easy as 1, 2, 3... er 4.
