soSIMPLE Calendars compared

What’s the difference between the two soSIMPLE Calendar products?

soSIMPLE Calendar Add-On was released October, 2020.

soSIMPLE Calendar is now known as soSIMPLE Calendar Server Powered.

Our flagship product, now known as soSIMPLE Calendar Server-Powered, uses FileMaker to work with your calendar in a web viewer.

soSIMPLE Calendar Add-On uses the same codebase, but has been reengineered as a FileMaker 19 Add-On. We’ve simplified the FileMaker scripts and added many useful utility functions.
