Virtosoftware has released Virto Ajax Calendar 1.5 – the new version of a web part for Microsoft SharePoint with additional features for effective calendar planning and management. The core new features of the version provide significantly improved visualization of the calendar elements. Among them – displaying the completion percentage of the calendar elements on the Gantt Chart and more flexible color coding of the events. While in the previous versions the color of the events could be adjusted at the data source level only, in Virto Ajax Calendar 1.5 users can choose the color of an event to be displayed in his calendar depending on the value of some event’s parameter, for example, its priority or resources. Virto Calendar is designed to provide SharePoint users with extended features for calendar planning and management that are not available in the standard SharePoint calendar. It substantially expands the functionality of the default Microsoft SharePoint calendar by a wide range of features and capabilities. With Virto Ajax Calendar users can use not only SharePoint lists but also SQL tables as a calendar data source. Besides, Virto Ajax Calendar supports MOSS Audience Targeting that allows restricting the access to list events only to specified users and user groups, and enables flexible customization of the event tooltip information. In addition, it provides extremely user friendly and simple interface that allows creating new calendar events with a single click, and using drug & drop to change event timeframe. The new version of Virto Ajax Calendar with English, German, Spanish, French, Russian and Chinese localizations is available at http://www.virtosoftware.com/SharePoint-web-part-calendar-ajax.aspx There you can also find the detailed information on Virto Ajax Calendar and other web parts for Microsoft SharePoint by Virtosoftware, trials and demo versions as well as installation and user guides.
