Hi again allso i have a related question so ill continue in this thread. i have been using this command succesfully in the last few weeks(defun z/export-to-ics ()(interactive)(rename-file (org-icalendar-export-to-ics)"/home/zeltak/org/files/
export/kcal.ics")(message "exported to ics"))this forces me to first open the file i want (meetings.org) and then launch the above command. is there a way to auto make the above function to auto export meeting.org each time without opening it first?thxZOn Wed, Jul 13, 2016 at 6:27 PM, Philip Hudson <address@hidden> wrote:You have _two_ concerns here. First is what to do when you save
"meetings.org", second is what to do every half hour. Your code
handles both of them, essentially correctly, but in the wrong place.

/meetings.org"))This means the code will only execute if the current buffer is
"meetings.org" when it executes. That _is_ what you want when you save
meetings.org, but it _is not_ what you want when the timer executes.
Break out the body of the `when' form into its own function, and call
that function from the timer, instead of `z/save-meeting-to-ics'.

You mean 1800 seconds, I think.
