The most widely used FileMaker Pro calendar, CC Calendar is a complete, multi-user calendar solution for FileMaker Pro. Available in Free, Full, and Pro Versions, CC Calendar is completely unlocked.

CC Calendar is designed to be as simple as possible, making it easier to integrate with your existing FileMaker Pro solutions and includes instructions for swapping out some of calendar files for FileMaker tables you may already have, such as your own tables of users and appointments. Thus, you can use CC Calendar to provide a calendar window onto data you may already have, or as a template form which to build new more...

  • Mac OS X 10.0 or later
  • FileMaker 7v.03 and higher. Versions for FileMaker 5-6 are available

I too bought a developer license, after trying out the free version, which really impressed me. The preceding comment (Mark D Kerr) about the developer solution's complexity is valid on one level, but not in any sense I can decipher from the commenter himself.

I do think, as he suggests, that he should have waited and tried it out a bit before "grading" it. What's with this idea of commenting and rating something you haven't yet explored?

But more to the point: I guess you gotta ask yourself how much effort you want to expend understanding something that succeeds so well, using this kind of complexity. For me, it's a great educational tool: The separation of interface from logic, the efficiency of where it goes and what it does, everything I've seen in the developer edition, in fact, is remarkably elegant. I'm kind of psyched, frankly, if it means I learn something.

And I think trying to compare this calendar with the available "simpler" and "free" versions is misleading on its face. For a couple of reasons: It's pretty obvious from the developer's site that there is a simple, free, version available (wtf!!)--whose code is wide-open to the user/developer.

In fact, I'm continually amazed at the generosity of this company in its free stuff. I guess primarily because they're actually FREE. I mean, these guys are giving away whole solutions, nothing's locked, there's no time limit, no limited funcionality, etc. And each free piece I've tried out is far better than what I've tested, and paid for, from other developers.

The more complex versions are exactly that: more complex. in exchange, they do an awful lot, and they too do it better, and more elegantly, than any I've seen elsewhere.

As to the learning curve: There's
support available, and from my experience the developer is really responsive. The site has FAQs, mailing lists, & forums, for crying out loud. Even scripts that get a bit hairy are well-commented out: plenty of ##notes along the scriptsteps to let you know just what's going on.

So the argument that simple, free solutions exist from other sources seems both obvious, and ludicrous, seeing as these guys aren't denying you just that.

3 stars? No offense intended, but if the gripe is that this software is too difficult for someone to wrap their head around--in light of all that the developer offers by way of help--free versions, support, FAQs, forums, mailing lists--the 3-star rating seems less a reflection on the software than on the limits, and weird impulsiveness, of the commenter.

Use CAUTION before purchasing! I have never built a "full featured calendar" of my own, and to be honest, I have only begun to explore this solution and may live to totally retract what follows, but for now....

The file is hideously complex, the relationship graph a nightmare. It may be that it's all necessary and efficiently built, but on first look it's very difficult to believe that this is "optimized".

I've seen several simple calendar examples that lead me to believe that this complexity is not necessary, that it could be accomplished with a fraction of the fields and relationships used here.

Bottom Line: If I'd known an hour ago, what I know now, I would have kept my $400, and built my own.

Thank you for the review; I'm sorry you found the calendar so difficult. I hope to see you on our support forum if you continue to have trouble with it.

Just a couple of points less people get the wrong impression...

While the relationship graph of the Pro Dev Calendar that Mark purchased is a little complicated, it is well organized and documented. There are also simpler versions of the calendar available which do not offer the repeating events and color-coding features which add some of the complexity to the graph in Mark's version.

Finally, the Pro Dev price Mark mentioned is for a world-wide license to the Pro Calendar. The Site Licenses most commonly purchased are $159.

All the best,

John
