2/28 updates to Convenient Calendar

March 01, 2013

Just a few small updates added this week.


- Finally flushed out all of the bugs with timezones for all day events. (Time will tell)


- Added the ability for calendar users to be able to add comments to blogs. Now you can let me know how you feel publicly.


- Created horizontal scrolling on the event colors for those with small computer monitors.


It's looking like the initial testing is almost complete. If this testing schedule holds, this version of the calendar will be going live on www.convenientcalendar.com next weekend March 9. The current version of Convenient Calendar will be moved to another domain for reference and access to old data till the end of March.

Event Colors Now Live

February 24, 2013

The newest feature for the new Convenient Calendar app has just been pushed live. You can now change the background and text colors by calendar to help distinguish each calendar more easily.


There is a new tab named Calendars on the left side of the calendar. Just click on the tab and it wiill open options to change the event colors. It is broken down by groups (personal calendars being its own group) so if you have mulitiple personal calendars or a group has multiple calendars then they will all share the same color scheme. 


The color change saves automatically and update the events right away as well. Saving a step of submitting a form. 


As alway please let us know if there are any bugs with the new feature.
