Calendar Creator? 12.1, Traditional Disc
Is not user friendly. Is not as good as the previous versions. I would not recommend this product at all.

Still Not Satisfied
I am not unhappy with Office Depot. I am unhappy with Calendar Creator. For years I have used and have been delighted with Calendar Creator 2.0. At one time I did purchase and install an upgrade, Calendar Creator 4.0 but I was unhappy with it for many of the same reasons I am unhappy with Calendar Creator 12.1. The reason I upgraded to 12.1 is because I upgraded my computer which has Windows 7 and Calendar Creator 2.0 (CC2) is not compatible. To compare, CC2 allowed for each person to create their own List of dates. Calendar Creator 12.1 (CC12) does not offer these lists as separate lists, but they are a part of the ?collection?. The difference is that in CC2 each individual could change their list and include them with other lists from other people into one calendar, not so with CC12 In CC2 weekly planning calendars could have columns meaning more could be schedule for each day, not so in CC12. In CC12the font size is so reduced you can no longer read it, or it simply disappears In CC12 the font line spacing is so large and does not change no matter the font size meaning you are only allowed so much information in each cell block. In CC2 the graphics could be made transparent behind the event, not so in CC12, although it will allow a separate graphic to be assigned to a day. CC2 was a simpler and more user friendly program. As the Calendar Creator program was sold from one company (SoftKey) to the next, it has not gotten better, only worse.

Product is unstable and technical support is awful
Functionality from earlier versions has been removed. If you plan to use this schedule many all-day events, there is no way to print out a daily view with event details. Technical support is awful and "does not support functionality issues". They refer you to a blog where you can post your questions. The moderator is very helpful and responsive but admits the product has some shortfalls.
The product is also very unstable in Windows 7 although they claim it is designed especially for W7. I used the software to import large event lists from a prior version and I constantly received error messages and the product closed.
