Sugar Calendar Features

Simple, fast, lightweight on your website. Add-on to it when needed.

Simple admin interface

Sugar Calendar’s interface is beautiful and easy to use.

View event posts on a monthly, weekly, or daily calendar. Or choose the standard post list. Filter by category. Search. All on one screen.

If you have clients or site-admins doing content updates, they’ll love it.

Custom date formatting and translation-ready

No matter where in the world you are, you can tailor Sugar Calendar for your audience. There are full controls for time and date formatting. Easy to customize. For anyone and everyone.

Sugar Calendar is also fully localized and ready to translate.

Time zones

If your audience spans multiple time zones, you’re in luck! You can specify a time zone for each Event or Calendar.

Plus, you can enable Visitor Conversion which instantly updates an Event page to display in each visitors own time zone.

Perfect repeating / recurring events

If you need to create events with very specific timing, Sugar Calendar can help. Set up daily, weekly, monthly or yearly events with custom end dates.

Professional and Ultimate license-holders have access to the Advanced Recurring add-on. This is the best-in-class plugin for the most complex and irregular events you can imagine! Need to set up an event every seventh Tuesday with a few exceptions? Advanced Recurring has you covered.

Easy front-end display options

Displaying a calendar on the front-end is effortless. With Gutenberg blocks or without blocks, simply paste in the shortcode sc_events_calendar on your page or post.

From there, you can customize the shortcode with size and category parameters. There are also advanced options for adding calendars to your theme with template tags. Learn all about it here.
