Several times now, I've needed to display a summary of items from another module, and can't figure out a good way of doing this. An example might be if I have an events module on my Events page, and I want to have the first 3 events listed on the home page
(in a different format with perhaps just the date and title as a link). Documents might also be an example of this, where the home page displays the 3 newest documents.
I started off trying to do this using an RSS feed, but it's a bit difficult to explain how to do for my client, and it also doesn't seem to pull out data from the feed, like the event date.
Any ideas on how to achieve this ? Surely many other people have needed to do this.

Check out H2O at www.OnyakTech.com. With H2O, you can list contents from any module by having H2O link directly to it's core Tables. You also have full control of the display of the data and you can filter out data
You could even merge results from two or more modules by using the new external links control in H2O 3.0.
