OK.. so I've switched back to the GP point system.. I have to say, that some of the additions made in the past are very nice.. like being able to see now what raids the person attended, and how many points they got for that raid etc.etc.etc....

Some issues.. When marking attendance.. is there any way to have the list sorted Alphabetically by Character name... Right now it is in Sign up order.. which is totally useless, and takes a lot of time to mark people down when you have to hunt for thier character name.. If it was alphabetical it would be so much easier to mark attendance..

A small issue I ran into.. If you go in and mark attencance.. and you realize that you made a mistake, or missed someone.. if you go back in to edit that attendance and save it, it doubble's their points..

Case in point I was updating the guild auction and putting in negative point values for those who spent points.. I had to go back in because I missed someone, and it subtracted points from everyone in the list over again.. (It's probably been doing this with adding points all along but I've never noticed because the point values were so small.. lucky buggers got a couple extra points they shouldn't have) Because a couple of them spen like 500-600 points on an item, doubleing that value was VERY  noticeable as it put a couple players -1000 in points.. Anyhow.. There needs to be a way to go back in and edit this so that it doesn't duplicate the points when saved..

The only work around I can see is to put all the points to 0 until I'm sure I have everyone in the list.. then assign the points after the fact?!?!.. a bit of a pain in the *(@#&$ but will work short term..

Anything you could help me out on with this would be appreciated.. it's a really good tool, and I'm hopeing to get a couple of the little annoyances out to make it a GREAT tool..

Thanks again,
Eil.

Or what I do, is assign everyone the points, and if you found that made a mistake or have to add someone else in there, then when you go back into the editor, set all the old attendees to 0 and give the new attendees the applicable raid points.

It's the only way around it, and it sucks.

Too bad they couldn't set it so that a person can only get raid points once for a particular event.

The only problem I see with that.. is it will show that they got 0 points for the raid if you go in after the fact and set it?!?! if that's not the case, then I'll do it that way, but I can hear the freaking out now of the members saying so-and-so got 10 points, and I got nothing WTF..

Well.. I'll keep screwing with it for now.. but the Alphabetical list, or even a sort button really needs to be added to make life easier.. having to hunt for 24 people is just time consuming

Yes, it will show up as 0 points in the list, but you should tell them to rest assured that they will have gotten the full value and that the 0 points only shows up because you had to add someone to the list, and it's the only way you can get around the editor.

Of course, there is one thing you can do that might require a little more work and that is to delete the event from your calendar, then recreate it and give everyone credit.  That will allow them to see the full raid point value in their list.  It will make everyone happy, but it takes a little more work.

Ahh yes.. but deleting the event does not delete the points.. hehe.. I understand what you mean.. but ya.. it's a work-around that is a bit of a PITA..

Thanks for the Suggestions.. Hopefully Aaron will have a look here and see if there's anything that he can do to help with the issue.

Eil.

Oh yes, I almost forgot about that.  After you delete the event, go into the Site Member portion of the Control Panel, then click on all those who you gave credit for initially and substract the appropriate amount of raid points from their total in the the little pop-up box that comes up for their profile.

Then go back and create the event.

Like I said, it's a little bit of work, but to make everyone in your guild happy, it looks like that is the only way to go right now.

I think the list is set up in signup order because the list on the calendar page is also in signup order.  They must be tied together.

Also, the list of signups on the calendar page must stay in order of when they signed up.  This is the only way to tell who signed up and in what order when we have more people than team size will allow.

Agree'd.. on the Calendar it must be in signup order so you know who to leave behind.. but for the Attendance tracker.. it would be great if there was a "Sort" button that we could use after the fact if they are actually tied together.
