We have complicated room and parking reservations — several rooms in the CH 
plus 2 guestrooms and 4-5 parking spaces whose owners don’t have cars. We also 
use it for birthdays, team meetings, people traveling, meals, etc.

We use CalendarWiz and it works very well. We have a “category calendar” for 
each space and kind of event, so they can each be viewed independently or all 
together. For example, if you want to know when GuestRoom A is available, you 
can see just room A. If you want both of them at the same time, you can view A 
& B. The same for other rooms. There are settings for repeating events, rooms 
where reservations can’t overlap, etc. Color coded. A lot of options.

Events can be downloaded and printed. They can also be downloaded to personal 
calendars. I have it on my desktop.

It’s a full featured calendar with good support. You get what you pay for. 
We’ve used it for years.
