With this ease-to-use event calendar/planner, you can add, edit, and delete events on the fly. Set event date and time simply by dragging the event box and resizing it.
The scheduler can be configured to display events in different views: Day, Week, Month, Agenda, Timeline, etc. If there is a need to display recurring events, users can create events repeated on daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly basis.
You can configure the access rights and make the scheduler editable only by some users (e.g. only administrator can add/edit events).
The key features include:
* Day/Week/Month/Year Views & the ability to create custom view
* Agenda View (see all oncoming events)
* Map View (integration with Google Maps)
* Timeline View
* Drag-n-drop support to configure event date and time
* Customizable appearance
* Skin Builder (allows changing colors for each skin element)
* Single/multi-days events
* Customizable time scale
* Recurring events (daily, weekly, monthly or yearly basis)
* Localization to more than 20 languages
* Configurable access rights
* Export to/from Google Calendar
* Export to PDF and iCal
I am an independent consultant, so keeping track of my hours is vital if I am going to get paid.... and the Scheduler fits my needs perfectly...
My only negative about the Scheduler, is that it does not work with all Joomla templates... but that is a minor annoyance, not a bug...
Thank you and keep up the good work!

Unfortunately there are still some small bugs and the extension only offers one single schedule for the whole Joomla website.
Further, the way this application saves data in the database is very creepy: there is only one field for all events (and some configuration).
I think this extension could be really great/ and one of the best of its kind, but for a production environment I firstly need a stable application.
Also, you might want to consider getting rid of the weekend dates as options, because that way I have more space for activities during the week (it makes it wider if I could delete Saturday and Sunday.
What I also really miss is that in 'Agenda' it doesn't go to the next line if my activity name is too long for the width. It just disappears.
Could do with a bit of tweaking.
You can't put a ' in the name of a custom field because the calendar will disapear and everything crash if you are adding more than 1 custom fields at the same time.
but I love it, thank you!!!
I installed this good looking and easy to use component but after adding/editing/deleting appointments from my diary it crashed. Tried a second time, got it all looking pretty good and it crashed again!
Very frustrating. Would be 5 star if that didn't happen.
and the best thing is, that the client can edit it from the front-end.
one request if possible: joomfish frontend editing, what i mean, is that when i change language in front end, to automatically edit it in that language, including the time.
all together this the best event extension so far, so maximum rating.
and... it is free :D
