UK's Kalendar - simple Calendar and reminder program

review by Darrel in New Brunswick Cananda, Sept 2006, permalink

 

Sometimes people pop in to chat here at Freewarewiki. I usually stick around a few hours after I publish the newsletter in case somebody drops in.

 

Last week, Darrel dropped in for awhile. He told me lots of nice things about the area he lives in and he also mentioned a reminder program he likes.

 

Darrel: Have you ever reviewed UK's Kalendar?

Darrel: http://www.8ung.at/ukrebs/

Clif Notes: No, I've never tried that one. Do you like it?

Darrel: Yes, I think it is great for my simple mind

Clif Notes: It gives you audible or visible reminders?

Darrel: Both

Clif Notes: Nice

Darrel: Try using the non-installable version, ok?

Clif Notes: Yes, I see that there is a Greenware version, I like that.

Darrel: I like setting the different colours for the assorted alarms

 

Thanks for the chat Darrel! For the rest of you, here's some more information on this program.

Quote from the website

Automatic saving

Any changes to the database are automatically and immediately saved to disk. On every program start, a backup copy of your data file is created.

Unlimited Undo and Redo

Most changes can be undone and also repeated.

Minimize to the system tray

"UK's Kalender" minimizes into the system tray (the area next to the system clock).

Network support

"UK's Kalender" supports a shared event file, where every user can enter events that'll show up in each other user's calendar. For using the network functions it is neither required to install special server software nor to keep the computer with the shared event file permanently running. "UK's Kalender" will synchronize the local event file as soon as the shared event file is accessible.

Repeating events

There are lots of possibilities for entering repeating events, e.g. hourly, every three days, monthly, every first tuesday of the month or even every friday the 13th.

Forewarn time and snooze function

Each event can be assigned a user defined forwarn time in the range from one minute to several weeks. In the reminder dialog you can enter a time after that you'll be reminded again. Alternatively you can choose to be reminded again a certain time before the event.

Multi day events

Events can have a duration from one minute to several days (or no duration at all, but just a start date).

Event categories and templates

Events can be organized into categories, e.g. "Doctor", "Meeting", "Party" and so on. Each category is assigned a template of settings, including repetition rate and forewarn time.

Acoustic reminders

You can choose to be reminded of an event with a WAV file of your choice.

Event driven program execution and document opening

Documents or programs can be attached to an event. This is very handy for e.g. regular backup purposes.

Marking and hiding events

Special events may be either color marked or hidden.

Four event views

Events can be displayed in week-, fortnight-, month- or year-view.

Tooltips for events and todos

If you stop the mouse over a calendar date or a todo, extended info is shown for the events and todos.

Alarms can be deativated

Alarms may be deactivated all at once, so your game, film etc. won't be interrupted.

Highly configurable display for events and todos

All views can easily be configured to present the information just the way you want.

Search and filter functions

You can search for and filter out your events using keywords, categories, event states or date ranges. The filter function directly affects all output functions, so you can easily create e. g. a calendar only containing birthdays.

Clipboard support

Events and todos can be copied to the clipboard and may be pasted back to any word processor or "UK's Kalender" itself.

Export to HTML- and CSV-format

Events and todos can be exported to HTML-format in different views. With this you can easily print your dates and todos. Export to CSV-format allows the transfer of your data to a spreadsheet program. All activated filter options are applied to the output.

Holidays

Holidays for one or more countries can be displayed right in the calendar. Various holiday modules are available. If your country is missing, you can simply define a holiday module yourself.
