FAQ

Can I have recurring events?

The non-lite version has recurring options for daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly events.

Can I display Google Maps with my Events?

Yes, there is a free add-on plugin for showing maps. This add-on works with both lite and full versions of Sugar Calendar.

Very usefull. I paid for pro version and it does excactly that it says. !!!! I translated (the pro version) in greek language

I love the simplicity of this plug-in. Some events plug-ins have way too many options and it can get overwhelming to my content administrators. The premium version is not that expense either, but in most cases... the free will will be all you need.
