Extension, Fieldtype, Module
Calendar is the most powerful event management and calendaring add-on on the market for ExpressionEngine. The intuitive interface allows you to create events with complex recurring event rules and exclusions, while the flexible templating offers a variety of options to satisfy your calendaring needs.
Solspace Calendar is the original and premier event and calendaring add-on for ExpressionEngine!
Calendar offers up both power and simplicity, giving you all kinds of options to satisfy your calendar needs. Need a simple display of daily activities? How about a monthly calendar? Need to fully control every table, div, and class that makes up the HTML that will become your calendar? Calendar can do all that and more.
Calendar utilizes the power of ExpressionEngine’s Channel module. Every event is created in an intuitive fieldtype as part of a channel entry. Therefore, you can take advantage of any and as many custom fields and field types, categories, etc to go along with your calendar event data. If you can do it to an entry in EE, you can do it to a Calendar event.
Events in Calendar allow you to make recurrences and exclude dates. Need weekly events? Have a group that meets on the 3rd Tuesday of every month? How about a monthly meeting that does not meet during the summer? Calendar can do all that.
Last but not least, Calendar allows you to export your events as ICS data or ICS subscriptions, allowing your users to import your event data directly into other calendar applications like Google Calendar, Apple Calendar, Microsoft Outlook, and more.

Client: OMG NEED REPEATING EVENTS!
Dev: Mmk, Slspce Calendar to rescue!
Client: This good.
Client: WTF MIA SITE IS SLOW. ADDED 1,256,032 REPEATING EVENTS.WUT?
Moral of the story, you’ll need to increase phps memory limit, caching is good too. Addon does complex job well.

Calendar is simply the most advanced full featured Calendar available on Devot:ee. The ability to add rules that allow you to add and delete events from repeating events has saved countless hours and headaches.
The templating and documentation is robust, but has a steep learning curve.
For what we needed it to do - which was basic calendar event postings - it works great and saved us a lot of time. Could never get the ICS to work properly but that might be on us rather than the module and to be frank we really didn’t push looking into it that hard.

This add-on is extremely buggy, and I have encountered many walls in regards to stated functionality. If you came to this add-on hoping to work with ICS data in or out, you will be very disappointed. Solspace is not prioritizing the numerous fixes needed.
Solspace’s calendar is a great tool for EE. It’s not overly intuitive however, and does require a little extra work to get used to it. I think once it’s integrated with SafeCracker it’s going to be incredible. Definitely the best calendar tool for the job in EE.
It’s all in how you use it. This thing is so flexible, and solspace is only improving it. A great product, albeit like all solspace addons- expect that flexibility to come at the cost of implementation- you will spend some time setting up your templates for sure.

Sorely needed and a beautiful, intuitive interface. It has a bit of a learning curve, and a minor bug involving Playa 3, which will likely be ironed out in the next update (right now the way to get around these is with an ‘embed’ method). Great support on this module, too.

Something EE has needed for ages, especially for church websites. Has bags of potential but I’ve still been having real issues with the ics export to Google Calendar and Outlook and disappointed doesn’t work as expected at present.

Incredibly powerful module for ExpressionEngine that was sorely needed. Thank goodness Solspace tackled this one, because calendars and events are not an easy beast to tame in a CMS. Fortunately, they did an excellent job with the ability to create very complex rules for repeating events. Excellent!
