maladd created the topic: help with making alias unique
Our speakers are slow at getting their talk titles to us, so we use their names for the event titles. Some people present more than once. I would like to have the event start date either become the alias or be appended to the event title when the event is saved. I would like to automate it rather than rely on the data entry people to remember. I would be okay if the alias changed if the event date changed - this also sometimes happens.

I would appreciate any suggestions.

Hi "M. A.",
there's no way to alter the alias prior to saving. It merely checks it it's not empty. So no way around modifying it on your own. Also, a change in the way this alias is created would not be easy given the different uses SimpleCalendar has...
My advice is to append (or prepend) the date to the alias.
Best regards
Fabrizio
