Common Schedule Organizer – Fall Edition 2013

Yep, it is that time again!  Common Fall conference and I had to deal with a couple of API changes and I implemented a few of the suggestions from the Spring Conference so, as usual, I am late to the party.

You will find the web application version here:

You can download the Android APK here:

Same drill as before:

If this is the first time you have used the app, or you have updated, you will be prompted for your email address that you use to access the Personal Grid on the Common website.  Your personal grid information will be pulled into the app but remember it is a one way street: As you add items to your schedule in the CSO they will NOT update your personal grid info (still working on the best way to handle it both ways).

Once you have entered that info and are on the main app screen, click on the “Load Schedule” button.  It will turn yellow and after 30 seconds or so you will see a “Loading” message appear and flash on the screen.  It took me about 2 minutes to download the initial schedule.  At that point the message should change to “Ready” and you are ready to go.  If you have personal grid items, go ahead and visit your schedule to make sure they downloaded.  From then on you can update the schedules, both the master schedule and the personal grid info and it will update the app with the latest and greatest.

I have added conference maps and I have added a list of local restaurants.  Perhaps I can add a “Yelp” type feature that will late you folks rate them.

If you have something other than an Android device, you can use the web application version of the app.  It will still save your stuff to the device you use so it is still plenty handy it just won’t be “native”.

If you have a question or a suggestion you can always email me (you know my name) at the company domain (valadd dot com).  I’ll try to get back to you and patch things as necessary.

Enjoy! See you at the conference!
