Creating events and tasks from email in a semi-automated way

  • Speaker: Merike Sell
  • Summary: Every Lightning user can add events from their friends and colleagues quickly and conveniently to their calendar as long as they come in a calendaring format like iCalendar. But when they send you an event in natural language you have to type in all timing and location information already present in the email. Shouldn't this be easier? This talk introduces a prototype addon that will spare you from manual data entry and the methods used for doing that. Please bring interest in calendaring and/or foreign language skills with you. Speaking only 4 languages I can only recognize language-specific limitations that I'm aware of, but this should work well in many languages.
