Trips / Events

Post by weppos » Thu Jun 08, 2017 3:48 pm

I'm quite sure you're not short on idea, but this is one I wanted to propose for a while.

Every once in a while, I go to a dive trip. For example, I've just came back from a liveaboard on the Red Sea. During these events, I generally log several dives, multiple dives per day for the entire duration (e.g. a week).

It would be nice to have a feature (let's call it Event) where I can create an event with a proper title, description, etc and attach multiple dives to it. A sort of categorization.
I also generally take a signature from each participant, along with the contacts.

I know I can probably obtain the same result with a tag, for categorization. But tags may be limited.
Events instead can represent a completely new view mode, where you can associate multiple buddies (even if they were not diving with you), view the stats of the trip, the photos, add details of the location, the guides, etc.

It's definitely not the highest priority, but I thought it was a nice idea to share.

With a tag you can view the stats of it, you can view the photos of it, you can view the sites/locations (in the next update). Most of what you ask is already possible, just by tagging things - which seems simpler/more flexible.

Storing buddies you didn't dive with is not likely to be a feature I add any time soon.
