If you don’t use FileMaker Server, or need a standalone calendar for your out-of-office users, this is an effective, fast, interactive calendar.
If you have FileMaker Server, this option requires an additional setup step (installing the PHP component). But once this is complete, you have much more flexibility and simpler integration.
