I was looking at this and the price and then found VikBooking system with all the bells and lights except a calender showing booked dates like this one does so well to back end and front end, if you looking for a basic calender to show booked dates and you dont want to struggle this works 100% and beter. Its just the price ...bit high for me.

It's good, but still needs some work.
In stead of nMonths I would prefer a Year option.
In the Month view it's not exactly clear which month is showing.
In the backend, the Calendar List view is not Joomla 3 compatible yet.

I have downloaded the free version of the Multi-View Calendar to test its capabilities in full, assuming that the only limitation facing the commercial version, according with it’s description, is the number of events allowed, only 5 (the other remark in the description regards to a link to the builders, but this is not a limitation in the functionality).
So I have tested all the calendar’s functions and they pleased me completely. Off course that the free version is not supposed to be an option due to the 5 event limitation. Therefore I decided to buy the commercial version. Since I had to customize the calendar beyond the default adjustments to adapt it to my template and my own taste, I asked for technical support witch I received quickly and completed. Five stars!
In my opinion the great advantage of the free version of this calendar is to allow customers to test the full program before buying the commercial version. It is a company’s smart approach but requires a full confidence on the product. For me, the demos traditionally offered for commercial products conveying a number of functions, are not enough to make a comprehensive evaluation before buying. Thank you “Multi View extension” developers.

This product exactly matched what I needed for an event calendar. Multiple views, controllable access to entry creation, editing etc; readable by anyone or selective. Easy to set up. Shows its pedigree from Dreamweaver
Support is A1, found a couple of challenges with "no military" times ie 12 hour clock. Fixed pdq with clear instruction on what to do. And put into down load from web. The 5 entry version is an adequate demo, well just about, to see if it suits. If suits your needs then very well worth the money. If not then it was worthwhile trying before buying.
In summary good product with professional support - might even try their forms offering!

I am definitely NOT an advanced user of Joomla, and needed support about things that sometimes didn't even have to do with the calendar at all, but the support was always prompt, detailed, polite and before all, efficient. I got all my problems fixed in no time and I think the calendar looks very neat and clean. It definitely responds to all my needs (day-by day descriptions of country tours). Well done.

It's great to have all such ways to display the events. I've setup it to share info about the events in a private organization, using Joomla 2.5, works as advised. The developer kindly pointed me to the configuration I was looking for the calendar in my website.

It is a good attempt and it works out of the box, but free version is limited to 5 events only, which is ridiculous. This should be pointed out by the author here in order to prevent wasting time.

Uninstalling now.

I installed it on my extranet website to post and share important project dates and deadlines with my customers and so far I'm satisfied with the calendar, even have been able to set a different calendar skins for each customer which is a not-required but nice personalization of the service. What's missing? a better documentation for the user permissions area could saved me some amount of time and some way to get notices about the updates.

A well done extension, worked fine for me without work arounds required. The views are enough but I'd like to see a feature for importing iCal data for this calendar, I mean a standard way to import/export data from/to other systems, this is something I need for my project.
Owner's reply

Thank you for your review and feedback. The support for the iCal format is already in our TO-DO list, I'll let you know when ready.
