Comments for Plans

08 Jun 2007 13:21 Mirz

Been using Plans for years, on various websites.
It's a simple, easy-to-use, calendar. It's a breeze to install and works right out of the box. Customization is easy. I have tried many other calendar programs, some with less features, some with more. I always come back to Plans for reliability. It's user-friendliness is a plus for my staff who like to do things quickly. And for the price...? Who can beat it.

Not exactly. Plans does distinguish between calendar admins (who can change calendar settings) and users (who can add/edit/delete events). But this applies only to updating. There is no provision for allowing read access on a per-user basis.

The "users" feature is turned off in the default install. It can be turned on or off at any time.

Not at the present time. Feel free to add this request to the development wiki (http://planscalendar.com/doc/doku.php?id=dev:start).

Work with speedycgi?
Plans looks good and pretty. However, when it comes to perl cgi, I would like it run faster.

Anybody make it work with speedycgi?

Re: Access control

I'm looking for an calendar application myself atm, and this one looks great and would suit the requirements, but the lack of access controls is a bit of a problem.

It's not so much general access control to the calendars (that's no problem via a proper webserver configuration), but it would be nice to say "User A has only read access, User B also write access". Or does this feature exist and I missed it in the docs? (or am I supposed to configure that via GET/POST Limits in the webserver configuration?)

Splendid.
Does the job, does it well. A few particularly neat features like being able to include plans calendars from other sites, nicely templatable, all sorts of neat config options (it is WELL worth reading your plans_config.pl). Some other calendars LOOK prettier but start to look uglier when you actually use them, Plans looks neat and gets even neater when you actually use it.

Wouldn't mind a few more import options. I might write some.

yet another bump
I hate to just add another "mee too!" comment, but this really is a high-quality project, especially given the price point. There's nothing about it that will make your jaw drop; it does what it advertises, and it does it flawlessly. In the end, isn't that what you really want anyways? :)

Plans: exactly what I needed
Plans is a reasonble, easy to use *FREE* calendar. For my scout troop and keeping track of family events, it's exactly what I needed. Reading the announcements for updates indicates that it's a little buggy--but those bugs are constantly being fixed and don't interfere with day-to-day use. For a *FREE* calendar, I couldn't ask for more--you get a lot more than you pay for.

Re: Access control

There are multiple ways to limit web access at the server level. I think it's poor architecture to do it at the application level.


So no--there aren't immediate plans to add access control. For this to change would require a case of demonstrated need.
