Zap Calendar is an advanced, native Joomla calendar featuring AJAX, RSS and full iCalendar support. There are dozens of add-ons available for Zap Calendar, making it a full-featured calendaring system for Joomla websites. Extensive iCalendar Support - Zap Calendar was written from the ground up to fully support the iCalendar standard (iCalendar is the standard format for transferring calendar events between applications). Zap Calendar provides full import, export and synchronization of calendar events to and from external sources (including deleted events). Using a calendar program such as Outlook, Thunderbird or Google Calendar and devices like the iPod or iPad, downloading or uploading a single event or an entire calendar with 1,000's of events can be done easily with Zap Calendar. iCalendar repeating events are also fully supported.

AJAX Support – Zap Calendar supports AJAX, which allows users to browse the calendar by event, day, week, month or year without ever refreshing the screen page. AJAX is supported for both Zap Calendar component pages and modules. Social Networking Support – Zap Calendar users can post events to popular social network sites like Facebook and Twitter using the "share your event" option. Events can include a Facebook "like" button. Users can comment and RSVP to events using the provided plugins. Zap Calendar provides support for Community Builder and JomSocial.

"Sign Me Up!" allows people to easily sign-up for items for an upcoming event. Who is bringing the dessert? Will we have plates? "Sign Me Up" answers these questions with this Zap Calendar Add-on. A "Sign Me Up" package includes this add-on with either the Basic, Standard, or Pro versions of Zap Calendar. E-Mail Notification - Users are sent a thank-you e-mail when they sign-up for an item. The event owner is also notified by e-mail. Public and Registered Users Welcome - Sign Me Up! can be configured to accept all sign-ups or only sign-ups from registered users. Reminder E-Mail - A reminder e-mail can be sent to each user prior to the event to summarize their signed-up items. These features are available to the owner of the event: Create Sign-up Items - Specify the title and quantity you need for your event and perhaps a short description. You can also limit the # of items a person can sign-up. Sign-up Invites - Owners can invite friends to sign-up for an event. Friend lists can be created so invites can be sent to the same group of friends for other events. Custom field - Owners can utilize a custom field to request additional info or create a select list (i.e., shirt size selection of small, medium, large and extra large selection is possible) Sign-up Export - Export your sign-ups to a CSV or Excel file Manage Sign-ups - Update or cancel sign-ups created by other people Re-order Sign-up Items - Drag and drop sign-up items to re-order them on the event page. These features are available to the website administrator: Customizable E-mail templates - Add header and footer images to e-mails, or customize the e-mail templates using Zap Calendar's built-in form editor. Allow Public Sign-ups - The site administrator can enable or disable sign-ups by non-registered users. Sign-up Verification - The site administrator can require public sign-ups to be verified by e-mail before the sign-up is accepted. Sign-up Invites - Allow or disallow event owners from using the friend invite list.
