1. Do you use the Desktop app, Chandler Hub web app and/or running  
your own instance of Chandler Server?

Desktop and Hub (I guess it's not "my own" instance of Server. ;)

2. Are you using the app just as a calendar or are you taking  
advantage of the task features?

Just as a calendar, although I've worked with the task features.

3. Are you using other applications with Chandler Hub / Chandler  
Server? e.g. Apple iCal, Evolution, Sunbird/Lightening, etc.?

I've tried using iCal with Hub.

4. Are you using Chandler for home or work? Do you use it for managing  
personal tasks and calendars or with a group or both?

Just for work.

5. Are you sharing just Calendars or lists of Tasks and Notes as well?

Just calendars.

6. Do you run Chandler Desktop on multiple machines and "share with  


7. If you could pick one feature to have implemented, what would it be?

User-based access control.

8. What top 3 bugs do you think are the most important to fix?

1) Can't rename some shared calendars in Desktop (resulting in a whole  
lot of "Work" collections).
2) The overall lagginess of Desktop, especially when creating a new  
calendar entry or task, is still a huge issue for me.  Firing up a  
mail message to send into RT, switching to and opening a task list  
entry in iCal, opening up textedit to jot a note, or even creating a  
new task in Hub each take less than 1 second on my machine and  
generally don't impact my "train of thought".  It takes 3-4 seconds to  
open up a new task or calendar entry in Desktop, even if Desktop is  
open and in focus, and sometimes things just don't open after waiting  
those 4 seconds (or I find Chandler needs to load from scratch) --  
resulting in a complete derailment.
3) Interop with existing tools is still difficult.  It's hard to  
subscribe to a hub calendar with a ticket in iCal and share with folks  
using iCal.

9. Is there any documentation/information you were looking for but  
couldn't find?
