Calendus is a calendaring system which allows organizations their own customized web-based calendar. The calendars are simple and easy-to-use, allowing events to be posted and edited using a web interface, and then displayed in a number of views, including event, day, month, and text views. This tool allows groups to quickly set up a web-based listing of events which is always up-to-date. In addition, the groups have full control of the content of the calendar.

Since we found no suitable tools at that time, we decided to develop our own calendar system, and finished a functional prototype in the spring of 1998, and put it into use for a handful of Stanford organizations, such as the Stanford Film Society and the Electrical Engineering department. Since then, we have worked to make gradual improvements to our system, in order to make it easy to use and suit the needs of real organizations. This calendar system in its current state reached completion in January 1999, and there have been a few small added features since then.
It should be noted that the Stanford Report is also a source of event information.
As the owner of your calendar, which you can link to your organization's homepage, you have control of the calendar and can make it an integral part of your organization's web pages. Currently, departments such as the Computer Science Department, Physics Department and the Dance Division are using the system, as well as numerous organizations, such as the Stanford Film Society. If you would like a calendar for your organization or department, please contact us!
We hope that this project will prove to be of benefit for organizations and departments here at Stanford and in the surrounding areas.
