Retrieving a List of all Queue Managers

Not long ago, I provided a tutorial that offered the ability and functionality to retrieve a full list of process managers and the total number of processes managed.

Today’s tutorial somewhat builds upon the aforementioned tutorial; however, instead of focusing on process managers, we’ll turn our attention to the CCB API service for queue managers: queue_managers. Continue reading Retrieving a List of all Queue Managers

Retrieving a list of all the Process Managers

Today’s tutorial is a bit simple in nature and geared towards processes, process managers to be exact.

This week, I’ll share with you how to use the CCB API process_managers service to retrieve a full list of process managers and the total number of processes managed.

I won’t dive into the details of displaying each process managed by their respective process manager. You’ll have to wait until next week’s tutorial or the following week.

Or perhaps, you’ll get a bit curious and courageous to figure how out how to display each process managed by their respective process manager. It’s really nothing to it, but to do it.

Speaking of doing and getting things done, let’s get started with today’s tutorial. 😉 Continue reading Retrieving a list of all the Process Managers

Create a process list drop down menu – Part III

We’re back at it with another tutorial just for you.

Yes, we’re working on expanding the previous week’s tutorials where we created a fully functional drop down list of processes and a drop down list of respective queues for a selected process.

This week’s tutorial focuses on how to retrieve a list of individuals based on a given queue when selected from drop down menu.

We don’t have time to waste, so let’s get started. Continue reading Create a process list drop down menu – Part III

Create a process list drop down menu – Part II

Welcome back for another CCB Tutorial.

This week’s tutorial picks up from where we left off last: Create a process list drop down menu.

It was a fairly simple tutorial to retrieve the entire list of CCB processes and place the list into a key-value pair select list, also known as a drop down menu.

But the simplicity stops there at the last tutorial, and time for a bit more challenging assignment.

Today’s tutorial combines the process list drop menu tutorial with the list retrieval of queues for a specific process tutorial.

Intermingling both process and queue tutorials is going to provide an opportunity to learn a new scripting language (if you didn’t already know it): Javascript.

That’s right! You’re going to learn a bit of Javascript, using jQuery library, to make some magic happen on the screen. 🙂

We won’t complete the overarching goal of this tutorial today, but do hang in there. This tutorial series will likely take us through the end of June to complete.

Hang in there… it’ll be well worth it in the end and likely spark a few ideas for some other custom projects for your church.

We have a lot to cover, so let us get started. Continue reading Create a process list drop down menu – Part II

Create a process list drop down menu

Welcome back! Today’s tutorial mixes a bit of HTML and PHP with CCB’s API to achieve a process list drop down menu.

Of course, the drop down menu of processes is not much to write home about.

Lord willing, I’ll show you various ways to use the process list drop down menu to automate a few things or two over the next couple of weeks.

Nothing too complex to learn today, so let’s get started. Continue reading Create a process list drop down menu
