  1. The Good
    * Straightforward and easy to use.
    * Allows users to have multiple calendars, task calendars, and note calendars.
    * Allows users to create events, tasks, and notes.
    o Event can be categorized by calendar, location, category, and priority.
    o Events can have a specific start date/time and end date/time, or they can be all day events.
    o Users can send e-mail “meeting requests” to other people to attend events.
    o Tasks can be categorized by task calendar, category, and priority.
    o Users can set events and tasks to reoccur.
    o For events and tasks users can make VueMinder Calendar Pro show two different types of alerts, send e-mail and SMS reminders, and execute a program.
    o Events, tasks, and notes can have descriptions/details, files, and links to other events/tasks/notes and contacts associated with them.
    + Event and task descriptions/details can be in rich text or plain text.
    * Has a contacts manager.
    * Has the ability to export/import events, tasks, notes, and contacts.
    o Events can be imported from CSV files, TXT files, iCalendar files, Excel files, and Outlook.
    o Tasks and notes can be imported from CSV files, iCalendar files, Excel files, and Outlook.
    o Events, tasks, and notes can be exported to iCalendar files, CSV files, Excel files, and Outlook.
    o Contacts can be imported from CSV files, Excel files, Outlook, or Google Contacts.
    o Contacts can be exported to CSV files.
    * Allows users to sync with Outlook, Google Calendar, share over local network, or to publish to a remote location.
    * Has a highly customizable interface, with users being able to filter what data they want to view, how they want to view the data, being able to move around panes, etc.
    * Has a desktop widget which gives users access to many features of VueMinder Calendar Pro right from their desktop.
    * Has a powerful printing function.
    * Has the ability to automatically backup program data.

    The Bad
    * Needs better, more direct way of syncing with smartphones, such as via apps.
    * Needs to give users the option to password protect published calendars.
    * No option to use plaint text for note descriptions – only rich text.
    * Only allows events to be categorized in the “main” calendars, with tasks and notes having to be put in their own separate calendars. Needs to allow users to categorize notes and tasks into the main calendars.
    * Does not allow users to share/sync/publish task and note calendars.
    * Uses an awkward mix of due date/start time for tasks. It would be better if there were due date/due time and start date/start time combos instead.
    * Needs the ability to “autohide” the calendar for the desktop widget just like how the navigation panel, tasks list, and events list can be set to autohide.
    * Uses E-mail to SMS gateway for SMS notifications. Using E-mail to Sms gateways is not “bad” (because it is the only way to send sms notifications for “free”) but this means not all people will be able to receive SMS notifications because not all service providers support E-mail to SMS gateways. Furthermore, some of the ones that do support it treat received messages as an MMS; sometimes SMS and MMS are priced differently, with MMS often costing more.
    * Lacks the ability to password protect the program.
    * No offline Help file.

  2. I have been using this program for months now, and it is truly superb. VueMinder Calendar Pro is probably the most powerful offline calendar available, yet despite the plethora of features it offers, it’s very easy to learn and use.

    In particular, the option to display multiple calendars and calendar groups, the option to sync with other calendars, whether on your own computer or with Outlook or Google Calendar, and the infinitely user-configurable user interface make this program an absolute must-have for anyone who has serious calendaring needs.

    I should add that the developer is extraordinarily responsive and constantly introduces new features – in large measure, at user request
