The Calendar Field

The Calendar Field

The SobiPro Calendar Field lets create a date field that features a popup calendar in the entry form of SobiPro to easily select a date for an entry.

With the Calendar field it is possible to create a complete events site due to the possibility to make a calendar field become the setting to specify the entry start publishing date and/or the entry stop publishing date. Also recurring dates like daily, weekly, monthly and yearly dates, and date/time ranges can be used.

The date field features a popup calendar in the entry and search form, that lets users easily select a date.

A calendar listing shows all dates entered in the (events) directory on the site in a specific calendar view. is supported.
