CSV/VCARD download and heads of household issue

Postby chrissv » Thu May 03, 2007 11:55 am

Hello,
I have noticed a problem in the VCARD and CSV downloads of the Membership Directory.

If a family has one adult and 2 children, the (human readable) Membership directory on the web indents the children so you see:
Adult Name
(space)(space)Child Name 1
(space)(space)Child Name 2


But in the CSV file, the names are put right next to each other, and the first 3 colums are filled in with the Adult Name, Child Name 1,Child Name 2
You can't tell if it is a family with 1 adult and 2 children, or one with 2 adults and 1 child.

The VCARD also has this problem in the NOTE field. It will say:
NOTE;QUOTED-PRINTABLE:Household members:=0D=0A=
Adult Name=0D=0A=
Child Name 1=0D=0A=
Child Name 2

(I realize the "N" field of the VCARD does list just the adult name, if there is only one adult, but the NOTE is a little ambiguous)

It would be nice if the CSV and VCARD files were a little clearer. Maybe:
1) The CSV could skip the 2nd name field if there is second adult, so you would have:
"Adult Name","","Child Name 1","Child Name 2"
2) the VCARD could put a blank line between the adults and children in the NOTE field, thusly
NOTE;QUOTED-PRINTABLE:Household members:=0D=0A=
Adult Name=0D=0A=
=0D=0A=
Child Name 1=0D=0A=
Child Name 2

Thanks,

Steven
