Very good extension

Posted on 20 February 2018
Easy to install and to configure
Ease of use
Easy to understand. The only problem is, that it‘s not possible to set default rules that can be assigned to users. May be this will be chan
Support is very good, even if you are not a premium member,
The documentation is clear and easy to understand

Very good product

Does its job well but I think more than half the users have to translate it into English so it would be nice if there was an English option
Ease of use
Very easy to use once set up properly.
Easy to find (just click on buttons in the backend).
I used this to: Billing for lessons. Once the templates are set up it becomes extremely easy send out professional invoices.

Great component!

Very easy to use... The only thing i would change is the standard language... I had to translate all the standard forms.
I used this to: Booking of free seminars.

Perfect tool for certain needs

Posted on 15 November 2016
Satisfied with provided functionality, perfect for class booking system. And it's all for free!
Ease of use
When you figure it out, it becomes pretty easy.
Nice email support, you get answers even if you didn't purchase anything.
Lack of some information and not everything is clear, but pretty easy to figure it out by yourself. Anyway, pretty good for a free extension
I used this to: Class reservation system. Perfect for a low-budget project, it has everything you need for creating an online class registration system.
Definitely I will recommend this extension.

very competently and fast!

Very clear.
Ease of use
easy to use
Quick, friendly and competently.
I used this to: Reservations, planning
Backend looks very much usable,
Zero frontend functionality in the free version
Ease of use
Very poor documentation, no clarification anywhere around what requires paid version
Bad - not even all questions in the support forums are readable unless you pay them
Poor - solely written for the paid version which does not help at all.
I used this to: testing the uninstall function of Joomla...
Owner's reply: Dear Tom,

you say: "Zero frontend functionality in the free version"
My answer: We were emailing about this issue: you thought there is only a backend of the OSG Seminar Manager and no possibility to show events at the frontend.
You asked me: "The free download only gives you the component to do the administration of the content and one cleanup plugin. There is no function (module) included to display any content on the website."
I answered that you have to handle the frontend view via Joomla menu, not via module and I sent you this link to our documentation:
At the documentation is explained exactly how to show events at the frontend (with the "free" version).
Maybe you didn't look at this documentation? I think it is a misunderstanding of the functionality of our component. If you want you can try again and see, that there is no problem to have a frontend view.

You say: "Very poor documentation, no clarification anywhere around what requires paid version"
My answer: I emailed to you that there is no need for a premium membership to use the component. And only some additional modules and plugins are available with a membership, but a frontend support doesn't depend on a membership.

You say: "Bad - not even all questions in the support forums are readable unless you pay them"
My answer: That is right. We offer an user to user forum and a premium forum. The access to the premium forum is for premium members only. The reason is, that we guarantee a user support from our experts - and this is not for free. This is a benefit for premium members.

You say: "Documentation - Poor - solely written for the paid version which does not help at all."
My answer: This I do not understand. Our documentation is written for the free component. Only some little parts pertain to modules and plugins of the additional extensions for the OSG seminar Manager (available with premium membership).

I think there is a big misunderstanding of our component. Perhaps are the premium membership and it's benefits not to understand at first glance. This we will try to improve.
Verwaltung von Seminar/Workshop/Kurs Angeboten
Ease of use
Perfekt, genau nach unseren Bedürfnissen! Und der Funktionsumfang wächst!
1a über das Forum und als Premium-Miglied "fast in Echtzeit" - nichts zu meckern!
Ist vorhanden, vieles erklärte sich mir aber von selbst (habe auch unsere Website aufgesetzt).
I used this to: Verwaltung unserer Workshop-Angebote, Rechnungsstellung & Stammdatenverwaltung!
Funktioniert bis auf Kleinigkeiten, wie dem Drucken-Button, hervorragend
Ease of use
Da es ein sehr umfangreiches Tool ist, ist eine Einarbeitung notwendig aber dennoch einfach.
Lässt keine Wünsche offen. Schnelles antworten, verständlich geschrieben. Auch bei unkonventionellem Einsatz.
Den End-Kunden ist leider oft nicht klar, was für ein mega Werkzeug sie mit dem Seminar-Manager haben.
I used this to: Ich habe den Seminar-Manager für die Website des Seminaranbieters br-spezial eingesetzt.
Sehr zuverlässig, läuft einwandfrei, umfangreiche Funktionen, hat alles was man braucht.
Ease of use
Bedienungsfreundlich, meist auch intuitiv zu bedienen. Einarbeitungszeit hält sich absolut im Rahmen.
Sehr, sehr schnelle Updates bei Problemen (z.B. bei Jommla 3.5.1). Kompetentes und Nettes Team.
Alles ausführlich vorhanden. Ansonsten fragt man einfach.
I used this to: Seminare, Volkshochschulkurse (VHS Germany)
