Nice tool, works really great!

Nice, but a couple of issues

TGC5308
June 24, 2020
This is a nice program. It could use a few improvements. I am using the free version so maybe those improvements are included in the paid version.

When I list the times for our events I can only list the on hour time. for example: If a meeting is at 10:30 I have to list it for either 10:00 or 11:00.

I can include details as a rollover, but as soon as the mouse leaves the link, the rollover vanishes. You have to click on the link to see all the details. A minor inconvenience, but an inconvenience nonetheless.
