As for PHP 5.3.27, this will be the last official update, no new bugs will be fixed in the future, except for security fixes.

Create Different Colour Coded Calendars

When you make a new calendar, it will automatically use a different colour just as it would in Outlook. This way you can add multiple calendars and sort different events whether they be personal, work or shared calendars. You can keep these calendars private or share them with others.

Set SMS Text Message Reminders

It is a great idea to spend some time to organize your email calendar, but if your calendar quickly fills up, you may find yourself missing certain appointments. The SMS text message reminder feature allows you to add your mobile number to receive an alert 5 minutes, 10 minutes, 30 minutes all the way to hours and weeks before the event is scheduled. If you don't want to be bothered by so many text messages then you could just use the email reminder instead.

Set Reminders For Recurring Events

Save time by setting recurring events to remind you 30 minutes before they begin. If you are always forgetting to take care of annual tasks, or need reminding of a weekly task then recurring events will save you a lot of time.

Recurring Events

To avoid adding the same task for each Tuesday at 8am, set it to recur and then you just need to enter it once. You can also set how many times you wish the event or task to recur.
