WebCalendar is a PHP-based calendar application that can be configured as a single-user or multi-user calendar for groups of users, or as an event calendar viewable by visitors.
Why Use WebCalendar
WebCalendar is intended to be easy to set up and use while providing advanced features and flexibility for a widely varied user base. It can be used as a scheduling system for an intranet or an events calendar. It is an open-source application, which means it is free to use.
WebCalendar can be set up in a variety of ways, such as…
- A schedule management system for a single person
- A schedule management system for a group of people, allowing one or more assistants to manage the calendar of another user
- An events schedule that anyone can view, allowing visitors to submit new events.
- A calendar server that can be viewed with iCalendar-compliant calendar applications like Mozilla Sunbird, Apple Cal, or GNOME Evolution or RSS-enabled applications like Firefox, Thunderbird, RSSOwl, FeedDemon, or BlogExpress.
