event organizing software

2006-06-21 03:03:59.229402+00 by Dan Lyke 4 comments

If I had just a little more time I'd write up a web app to do volunteer tracking for the Marin Century/Mt. Tam Double. First thought was to use Google Spreadsheets, but apparently they only support up to a hundred lines (and we'll be coordinating more than that). I'm putting MediaWiki on another domain, which might help us keep people and contacts organized, but won't help us with things like "show us all of last year's volunteers who haven't yet been contacted" or "show us all volunteers scheduled for time overlapped tasks".

Anyone know of event organizing software?

Google spreadsheets support over 100 lines (l imported a 5000 line CSV), although it can bog down if you have a lot of rows. You can add sheets if it makes sense to distribute things across them.

Hmm... Okay, I'll take a look rather than simply relying on my co-conspirators. Thanks.

no idea if it'll actually be useful to you :-) But wanted to clarify a common misconception.

I tried Dabble DB for a bit and was very impressed. But I didn't continue, because I didn't want to pay $10 a month for only 3 applications.
