It's easy to "test drive" these features.
Easy Group Member Management
All calendars belong to a group. The group administrator can create usernames & passwords for group members.
Group members can change their own password and receive password reminders.
For each calendar within the group, the administrator can specify who has "view", "add" and "change/delete" permission:
anyone, only group members, or only the calendar owner. There is no limit to the number of group members.
Create a list of event categories for each calendar. A name and color can be
associated with each category. When an event is posted, a category can be selected.
Event category names and/or colors can be displayed with the event information.
This makes it easy to color-code events.
There is no limit to the number of categories that can be created.
Embed Your Calendar
A simple form is accessible from the Calendar Administration page to generate
the code to embed your calendar within a page of your website.
Select the width, height, colors and other options, then click to generate the code, which can be copied and pasted.
If you elect not to embed your calendar, you can create your own header and/or footer.
Use your own logo and colors. Some customers prefer to have no header or footer, which is also easily
Several other options are available from the Calendar Administration page, including color scheme, background color/image, border color/size.
Reminders can be sent minutes, hours or days before the event.
When the event is created, enter the email addresses of the recipients,
or select from one or more
email lists. Two reminders can be sent per event.
A reminder can also be sent immediately when the event is added or changed.
View events as List or Grid
URL parameters can be used to dynamically change the calendar display.
Dozens of options are available.
For example, specify list or grid viewing style:
Or remove all editing buttons and the header using the "vm=-hr" parameter. For example:
For more information,
see the URL parameters tutorial.
When an event is added or changed, it can be marked private.
By default, events are not private.
Private events are only visible to the event owner and the group administrator.
Event Change Notification
An email notice can be sent whenever an event is added, changed or deleted.
Recipient email addresses are entered from the Calendar Administration page, which also
includes check boxes to specify what triggers notifications:
Advanced View & Search
This interface allows the viewer to find events within a range of dates, and/or search by
keyword and/or category.
The search feature includes two check boxes to narrow or broaden the scope of the search:
The printer friendly option can be used to display and print calendar events for an entire year.
Combine capabilities to create complex searches such as:
Find all events from August 1, 2018 to February 20, 2019, that
include the word "James" and the category "birthday" or "meeting".
The output of a query can also be exported.
The event editor makes it easy to add
bold, italics, color, links and images to event descriptions. Choose the right font, add lists, and if you understand HTML, edit the HTML code.
Scheduling Conflict Notification
When an event is added that overlaps the time period of an existing event, a warning or error message can
be displayed. If categories have been established for the calendar,
the calendar owner can specify that events must also be within the same category to be
considered a conflict. The options are:
- ignore conflicts, (default behavior)
- display a warning and allow conflicts, or
- prevent conflicts
This is very useful for managing conference rooms, equipment, appointments, etc.
Subscribe to your calendar from other calendar programs
that support the iCalendar standard,
such as Google Calendar, Microsoft Outlook, Apple Calendar (iCal) and Yahoo! Calendar.
After a subscription has been established, the other calendar system will periodically request updates to refresh the calendar.
Single events or all events within a specified date range can be exported using the iCalendar standard, which
is used by many calendar systems, such as Google Calendar, Outlook and Apple Calendar (iCal).
Calendar owners can create multiple email lists
to be used for sending reminders.
Email lists can be shared by all calendars that belong to the group.
When an event is added or changed, one or more email lists can be selected.
Events can be repeated daily, weekly, monthly, yearly, or
on the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th or last Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, or
Saturday of the month or year. Events can also be repeated every other,
every third, or every fourth day, week, month or year. Any day of the week combination can be repeated.
If your group includes more than one calendar, events can be copied to other calendars within the group.
This is useful if you want
to add an event to your personal calendar and a "master" calendar simultaneously.
A different event description can also be used for the other calendars.
Include a link to a web page or document.
The event posting page includes two fields, one for the URL (Web address) and one for the link text.
Viewers will click the link text to go to the URL.
