How do you pass parameters to a shiny app via URL

In web browsers you pass parameters to a website like

www.mysite.com/?parameter=1

I have a shiny app and I would like to use the parameter passed in to the site in calculations as an input. So is it possible to do something like www.mysite.com/?parameter=1 and then use input!parameter?

Can you provide any sample code or links?

Thank you

Apple releases iOS 9.0.2, fixes problems with iCloud, iMessage, and more

(credit: Andrew Cunningham)

Apple has just released iOS 9’s second minor bugfix update in as many weeks. iOS 9.0.2 resolves another handful of small-but-pressing issues that users have been having since iOS 9 came out earlier this month.

An iCloud bug that could interrupt a backup after a user initiated one manually has been fixed, as has a problem with iMessage activation. If you’ve noticed problems with screen orientation when receiving notifications, that has been resolved too. A nondescript “issue” with toggling cellular data for particular apps has been fixed. And the stability of the built-in Podcasts app has been improved just in time for International Podcast Day.

MonthView multiselect Start and End date into cells

I’m creating a userform, part of which includes a MonthView control set up with the multiselect option enabled.

From what I’ve looked up I understand that you can get the start/end date using SelStart and SelEnd, but I’m unsure of how to do this or how this works. I can get it to put in the first date selected by using something like this:

IDG Contributor Network: Box competitor Huddle makes two announcements during Box’s show week

Box is perhaps the best known pureplay enterprise file sharing and synchronization vendor; while its on-again, off-again and finally across the line IPO wasn’t a stellar showing, the company, and its effervescent CEO Aaron Levie, has long been one of the more important players in the space. One vendor that has suffered a little for being in the shadow of Box is Huddle. Founded in the UK, and now firmly ensconced on both sides of the Atlantic, Huddle had some early success with government customers, picking up a whole-of-government deal in the UK that really put the young company on the map.
