When read_status set to finish, add a date to read_at

Hey ho Folks,

i have a read_status field (Text, but with a fixed set of permitted values) with the values "finished, read at moment, unread, wishlist". And a field read_at (Date).

What I want to achieve is when I change the read_status to "finished", than the field read_at would automatically get the current date.

Is this possible? Or did I have the only choice to make it with hand?

Thanks already, and greetz.

Most likely, by hand.

My read status IS a date. Blank, not done
I have not explored all the plugins. You might look at Reading list

Hey ho =)

I already use the reading list plugin. But it only give you the choice for "Text, but with a fixed set of permitted values".
But I already see, that you found my Question on the reading list thread
Thanks for the reply!

For all other users, who will come here and want to ask the same question, read the thread from here: https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...134856&page=50

Update

I found a nice way!

Calibre and Goodreads Sync Plugin
The Tutorial is in German, but google is your Friend
A good English Totorial

The Plugin:
After you registered for an Goodreads Account, you can Sync your two Accounts. And it comes with handy extra stuff!
Plugin Forum

My Settings for the Plugin: (view Attached File)
- Shelf: to-read => Add 'Shelf.to read' to column 'tags'
- Shelf: currently-reading => Add 'Shelf.currently reading' to column 'tags', Remove 'Shelf.to read' from column 'tags', Add 'today' to column '#start_read'
- Shelf: read => Add 'Shelf.finished' to column 'tags', Remove 'Shelf.currently reading' from column 'tags', Remove 'Shelf.to read' from column 'tags', Add 'today' to column '#finish_read'

What it does:
1. Add eBook to Shelf "to-read", the tag "to-read" will be added
2. Add eBook to Shelf "currently-reading", the tag "currently-reading" will be added, the tag "to-read" will be removed, the start_read date will be set on today
3. Add eBook to Shelf "read", the tag "read" will be added, the tag "currently-reading" will be removed, the finished_read date will be set to today

Pro:
- Populate fields (with dates) after eBook moved to lists/shelves
- Goodreads Account has some nice Widgets for Homepages or Signatures
- You can customize it with your needs (Columns, Tags, Dates...)
- Online Read-Community

Contra:
- Initial Setup needs some time
- Goodreads Account (but you can set it totally private)
- You have to hit the "Sync"-Button after changes on the lists/shelves

I hope, this will help some people
