What you get when you buy the My Calendar User’s Guide
First of all, my gratitude. One of the reasons that this guide exists is because I’d rather spend my time developing and improving My Calendar than spend it answering support questions — if this guide answers your questions, that’s fabulous! I also hope that it will serve to answer questions that you haven’t even thought of yet, by showing you the range of possibilities available using My Calendar.
But more simply, you get the PDF of the My Calendar’s User Guide (almost 90 pages of supporting information for users and developers). In addition to the current guide, you will get free updates to the guide whenever they come available. I will send no other marketing materials to you — the only messages you will ever get from me will be to let you know that a new version of the guide is available to you. If you don’t want that notification, just send me an email through my contact form on this site and I’ll take you off the list for good, immediately.
Your privacy is important to me: I will never sell your contact information or use that information for any other purpose besides providing you with updates to the My Calendar User’s Guide.
User’s Guide last updated 4/17/2013 for My Calendar version 2.2.0.
