The grassroots CALENDAR® presents events on a "rolling" two year basis. This unique calendar can be maintained by multiple organizations, departments within an organization or personnel within a single organization or department. The database is instantly updated as each group or individual adds or deletes events, thus it is as up-to-date as the last data entry.
A single large (enterprise) calendar displays composite data from a series of smaller (root) calendars. The grassroots Calendar Administrator may create any number of root calendars and assign Root Calendar Editors secure access rights to add, delete and modify events within their respective calendars.
Events added to any root calendar are automatically added to the Enterprise Calendar.
Calendar Administrators may create a nearly unlimited number of root calendars.
Calendar Administrators assign secure access rights to Root Calendar Editors. Editors may add, delete and modify events on their root calendar.
Event Locations may be added by both Calendar Administrators and Editors.
Old events are automatically deleted from the database after 30 days.
Events may be entered for nearly any number of years into the future ... the calendar allows user to display only the next 24 months events.
Calendars are dynamically updated ... shows current month with next seven days highlighted.
