Functionality

Easily connects with and display existing Connect Daily calendar (and rollups) into our Joomla website. Great features and functions.

Simple to use and configure, but you do need to read the documentation which is all linked in the component area.

Support

Probably some of the best support we've experienced with a developer. Fast and extremely competent and uncovering/fixing any issues.

Documentation

Thorough documentation answered most of our questions. Had a few small questions and requests of the developer which were handled quickly.

I used this to: City website that uses multiple Connect Daily calendars to provide information to the public. We've used Connect Daily for many years. The plugin we've used in our Joomla site for about 9 months now without issues. Everything works as expected.

Documentation
Owner's reply: The reviewer's analysis indicating bad security was founded on the signup process. The system sends the new account's user name and password to the signee's designated email that they give at the time of signup. The password could have immediately been changed upon login however the reviewer did not continue using the software after this point.

We are taking this users comments seriously and are making adjustments to our procedures.

Security is a concern and a focus for us. Connect Daily has always recognized this and we are extremely security conscious. Here are just some of the high points:

* We require SSL for login using a valid signed certificate. Additionally, we test our SSL configuration and receive an A rating.
* User passwords are stored in a secure format.
* We monitor bad logins, and if multiple bad logins are detected, we lock logins on that account and the incident is reported via text message to our staff for immediate response.
* Unused accounts are routinely disabled.
* Uploaded files are scanned for viruses before being attached to events.
* Public event submissions don’t allow spam.

In short, while the reviewer's specific assessment that sending the password via email is insecure is correct, it doesn't represent the product as a whole. We take these comments as opportunities for continuous improvement of an already world class product.
