They have been amazing and worked with me to diagnose a problem I was having with the calendar - which ended up being something to do with the website I had installed it on rather than an issue with the product itself! They were extremely kind and patient, and I would definitely recommend investing in ANY of their products!!
I had purchased my membership prior to reading about some support issues that subscribers were having, but all my recent support requests have been responded to fairly quickly - overall I'm happy with the support I've gotten.
I think the JTAG Calendar is fantastic, and with a few updates and adjustments it will be the best calendar extension out there.
My only complaint would be the upgrade process; you must uninstall the extension before upgrading; which deletes any events that you have scheduled.
Many thanks for your feedback. We are always looking out for feedback inorder to improve the product to serve the customers better.
You would be pleased to know that we have just rolled out the functionality to be able to upgrade the JTAG Calendar without having to uninstall - so no more hassle of backing up data in order toavoid loss of any events already scheduled.
Hope you will find this useful!
YOU CANNOT ADD HTML TO EVENT DESCRIPTIONS ON THIS CALENDER.
It doesn't mention it in the description because it doesn't offer it. The calender looks good and works well if you don't need to add html. As im sure most people like me need to be able to add html to the events description I can't give this extension a good rating. After viewing the support forums the developers don't look like they'll be adding this feature anytime soon, even though there are a lot of people requesting it.
JTAG Calendar supports plugging in HTML in the Event Notes since Version 2.0.8 - images, links, etc. Please upgrade to the latest version and if you face any issues with enabling it please give us an opportunity to fix it by sharing details via the support forum or support[at]joomlatag[dot]com.
We welcome your feedback and are eager to help resolve your issues.
However, the component is not compatible with 2.5 as specified by the developer. I cannot access any of my calendars having updated to 2.5 following the developer's public blessing of 2.5 compatibility.
Furthermore, the developer seems to have gone otherwise dormant - with major work still being required to get this component to work properly in supported systems or work at all in Joomla 2.5. Forum posts languish for days and weeks without any answer.
I cannot recommend this component at this time. Fix the 2.5 incompatibility at the very least!
It's a good calendar tool, though it has some display issues where the available room for it is small (it does not display well in a 600px space - there are overlaps). I had a 1000px wide site with 2 200px sidebars and it couldn't handle it. However, I selected not to display the right side bar and it displays well at 800px.
Support is generally good, though I have experienced a few unanswered emails. But a big kudos to them, when I complained about it Jtag really got onto it and made it right.
For it's purpose, this could become #1 with the addition of a couple of items - the most pressing, IMHO, is emailing a user when they register to confirm details and sending a copy to the admin.
It's features reach with excellent design.
I have a very secured hosting with lots of limitations.
Installing any software on my environment is very hard but I contacted Jtag support and received a lot of help. they are really going an extra mile. thank you
Customizing interface not allowed, I would like to get rid off full screen button, attend button etc, there is any option for these unfortunately.
Events on the calendar well visible and color options unlimited, that is great.
The worst thing about this software is customer support. Whoever buy this software should not expect any customer support as they seems not exist. Overall, I found that software great and essential but unreliable and scares me. If they can fix and improve this, definetely will be the best one.
We strongly disagree about support, as you can see on our forums , especially the thread that deals with Jtag calendar is very active. We have same day or next day responses to issues and constantly fixing report bugs
We have improved No only our products but have improved support and guarantee 24-48hr turn on all commercial extensions. Our Goal is to provide the very best extensions support visit us again and see the improvements we have made. Jtag calendar is now the ultimate calendar combined with a new team dedicated to fanatical support.
