Using iCalMaker it is possible to:
- use an 'intelligent' import of appointment data from the clipboard
- import appointments from tab- and comma-delimited files
- import data from a vCal file
- import data from an iCal file
- create appointments within iCalMaker (only possible in Mac OX 10.4 or less)
- make appointments as single, or repeating (daily, weekly, monthly, yearly) events with exclusion dates, and also as 'requests' which can be sent via e-mail
- sort appointments by start date, end date, or summary (iCal file data is stored in 'order added' and not date)
- import appointments directly from iCal (this also allows the easy merging of calendars)
Once the data has been imported, or created, it can be edited as required.
Data can be exported from iCalMaker:
- to Mail (currently iCalMaker supports Apple's Mail program, Eudora, Mailsmith, PowerMail, and Entourage) as an attached iCal file
- as a vCal file (for import in to Palm Desktop)
- as an iCal file
- directly to iCal
- as a text based file with repeating appointments shown in the days they occur (useful for the creation of time tables, site visits, conference agendas)
- as a tab-delimited format
- as a comma-delimited format
iCalMaker is written in Cocoa and therefore Mac OS X native. Why not give it a try?
The software is shareware ($34.95 US, approx. £20 GBP) and can be purchased directly from the MMISoftware Store. A demonstration version can be available. The demo version has no disabled features other than it can only process five appointments at a time and it starts to display a 'nag' screen after you have used the unregistered program more than 5 times.
