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.
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!
That note is present in the product's page before downloading the extension. We have also included a note in this page according to your suggestion.
Thank you for your comments.
