Ok....

If you want the weather forecast in your EPIM ....2 steps

goto weather underground, get the Ical file for your area, load it into your google calendar.......then load your google calendar into EPIM

hey...long way around, but it works....never argue with sucess

I do not understand this. You plan to download ical file regularly and view it in EPIM? It is not dynamically updated. I know that there is some addon on Google Calendar to retrieve forecast but works for USA only (I think)


PS Why I do not see Beta Team label under my name? I am member of that usergroup

I just caught up with this....kinda surprised me, I know of two software companies that make products for synchronizing PIM software with the weather channel...obviously it is not a novel idea with me.

If you live in an area where snowstorms and the like are common place....weather can very much affect your scheduling priorities...
