A full feature calendar for small and medium companies.
Tcal is a shared cross platform client/server calendar, with a full feature graphic interface, that writes and reads from commercial databases.
Several small companies use a normal database, bought in a store, as a job management tool, preferring it to expensive and less flexible “custom” solutions.
Using TcalServer and TCP/IP on intranet or internet, this calendar records events time, deadlines and working hours on your management database, created by you with FileMaker Pro, Microsoft Access or MySQL. It allows time tracking on the database, using a weekly registration.
You can link jobs and resource names to events, see other resources calendars, accept or refuse invitations, time trace working hours (time tracking) spent by each employee on each job.

This software is available in Italian and English.
How does it work?
The system is composed of Tcal (the client), TcalServer (the server) and a database (supplied by you, either FileMaker, Access or MySQL).
Each computer where you install the calendar (Macintosh or Windows) talks to the computer where you installed Tcalserver using TCP/IP, in a Client-Server system.
(TCP/IP is the network protocol used by Internet).
The main characteristic of this calendar is that it uses a database that you can customize (ex. FileMaker Pro, Microsoft Access or MySQL), through TcalServer, in order to record timed Events, allocates resources and jobs to Events and to record each hourly resource job load (time tracking).
This allows the connection between the company-shared calendars and the company management database, made by you to handle the everyday workload.
Tcalserver, the server component of the Tcal calendar, connects to each Tcal calendars and to your databases, handling traffic and administering access levels.
What do I need in order to use Tcal?
- A computer where Tcalserver (OSX or Windows 7, Vista or XP) will be installed and an internal network with other computer where to install Tcal (OSX or Windows 7, Vista or XP). Note: for Demo purpose it is possible to use Tcal, TcalServer and a database on the same computer (we suggest the use the demo database documents downloaded with Tcal...).
- A Microsoft Access database or MySQL, if you use TcalServer on Windows 7 or XP
- The FileMaker Pro application or MySQL, if you use Tcalserver on Mac OSX
Tcal calendars instead can be used on Mac OSX or Windows 7 or XP.
See operating system details...
Future versions of TcalServer will work on additional platforms (Linux too), using other database (as Valentina, SqLite, Oracle, etc.).
