Hi, I'm Dan Chartrand from VueSoft, creator of VueMinder and PrintableCal. I'm doing a giveaway of PrintableCal Basic on Giveaway of the Day. The promotion date will be March 21 for anyone that is interested.

In addition, VueMinder Pro, VueMinder Ultimate, and PrintableCal Ultimate will be discounted 50% on March 21. I'll post the giveaway and discount links on that date.

PrintableCal is an add-in for Word and Excel. It can import and overlay calendars from many different sources, including VueMinder, Google Calendar, Outlook, Yahoo! Calendar, iCloud, etc. It includes over 40 calendar templates, all of which can be customized by the user. If you've ever been frustrated by the lack of printing options in your calendar of choice, PrintableCal bridges the gap.

Hello, I'm Dan Chartrand from VueSoft. I recently completed a new product named PrintableCal, an add-in for Microsoft Excel and Word. PrintableCal Basic will be available as a free giveaway on September 22 through BitsDuJour. You can access the giveaway here:

PrintableCal can generate calendars using a large variety of templates and data from many different sources, such as VueMinder, Google Calendar,, Yahoo! Calendar, Exchange, and more. There's really nothing else like PrintableCal, and I think it would be a huge help for anyone that routinely prints calendars but keeps their data in a place that isn't primarily geared toward printing. For example, when printing directly from the Google Calendar, events don't word-wrap and if you have too many events to fit in a day, some get chopped off. PrintableCal solves all that.

See the page linked below for more details about what all PrintableCal can do:


Hello, I'm Dan Chartrand from VueSoft, creator of VueMinder - a calendar and reminder program for Windows. On August 24, VueMinder Pro will be discounted 50% on BitsDuJour. If you haven't taken a look at VueMinder yet, now's a great time! Here's the link to the BDJ page:

VueMinder is also being translated into many different languages. The translations are still in work and aren't in the version being sold on BDJ, but will be a free upgrade when finished. A beta version is currently available and more information about the translation effort can be found here. Anyone that helps complete a translation will get a free license!

Hello, I'm Dan Chartrand, developer of VueMinder Calendar, a calendar and reminder program for Windows. If you've been looking for an interactive calendar that can sit on your desktop, sync with Google/Outlook, send email or SMS reminders to yourself and others, and help you better visualize/prioritize/organize your schedule, you'll be hard-pressed to find anything that comes close to the capabilities and flexibility provided by VueMinder Calendar Pro. The current version is the culmination of more than 2 years of carefully listening to the wants and needs of calendar users, and integrating those features into a modern, streamlined, and very easy-to-use package.

VueMinder Calendar Pro is normally $39.95 USD per license. However, until September 28, there's a 75% discount - bringing the price all the way down to $9.95 USD. This is the biggest discount we've ever offered! If you'd like to learn more about VueMinder Calendar Pro, or purchase at this discounted price, please visit us at

If you miss the sale, there's also a Lite version that is completely free for both business and personal use. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles of the Pro version, but it's still a very capable calendar program in its own right, and provides many innovative features you won't find in other calendar programs.

Hello, I'm Dan Chartrand from VueSoft, creators of VueMinder Calendar. 

VueMinder Calendar has just turned 1 year old!  To celebrate, we're offering a 50% discount for the week of August 23 through August 30.  Instead of the regular price of $39.95, you can get VueMinder Calendar Pro for only $19.95!

To receive this discount, download the Pro version trial and click the 'Buy Now' button within the program.  You can also click here to access the order form with the discount applied.

The first version of VueMinder Calendar Pro (originally simply named VueMinder) was released on Aug 27, 2008.  We've dug through the archives and found a screenshot of the original version:

For comparison, here's an example screenshot using the latest version (5.1.1):

As you can see from the two screenshots, we've been very busy in year since VueMinder was originally released, adding a plethora of new features. Here's a quick recap of the major features that have been added since the first version:
- Email and text message reminders
- Calendar and reminder sharing
- Tasks
- Appearance themes and improved default appearance
- Desktop alert reminder type
- Event list
- Date navigation
- Calendar and event defaults
- Configuration Wizard
- Automatic data backup
- Print layouts
- Mark events as completed
- Automatic completion when reminder is dismissed
- Recent reminder list
- Week numbers
- Customizable event appearances
- Configurable Calendar View settings
- Reduced application load times
- Analog and digital clock display
- Window docking and layout
- Excel import and export
- Outlook import/export and auto sync
- Enhanced tooltips
- Desktop Calendar integrated into Windows desktop
- Event and task categories
- Keyboard shortcuts
- Details area of main window
- Full-featured event description editor

To see the full list, check out the complete version history.

For the most part, these features were all based on the excellent suggestions and feedback we've received from our customers. And we're not done yet! We're hard at work on the next version (5.2), which will add a number of new and improved features and should be released within the next couple of weeks. Looking out a few months, we have even more features planned, such as automatic synchronization with Google Calendar, a note/journal editor, contact lists, and much more. We continue to gather feature suggestions from our customers and make improvements as fast as possible. Our ultimate goal is to provide the most powerful, full-featured, and easiest to use calendar program on the market. In our (admittedly biased!) opinion, we think we're succeeding, but we couldn't do it without the support of our customers!

If you feel powerless to affect the features of calendar programs provided by other bigger companies, don't despair! Give VueMinder Calendar a try, or take advantage of the discount this week. If you find it doesn't provide a feature you'd like, shoot us an email. We promise your voice will be heard, and we'll seriously consider any suggestions you may have. As mentioned above, almost all the features added in the last year have been based on customer suggestions, so you can feel confident that we'll take your feedback seriously. Give us a try!

Best regards,
Dan Chartrand

Hello all,

My name is Dan Chartrand and I'm from VueSoft, creators of VueMinder Calendar. We've recently released a freeware version of our calendar software for Windows, titled VueMinder Calendar Lite. You can learn more about it or download it from our site at

The following is a brief description of what VueMinder Calendar Lite is, and what it can do:

VueMinder Calendar Lite is a FREE calendar and reminder program for Windows. It supports multiple calendars displayed simultaneously in layers. These can be viewed and printed by day, week, or month. They can also be visually distinguished using unlimited combinations of fonts, background colors, and gradient styles. It also integrates a semitransparent calendar into your Windows desktop, so you'll always be able to see your upcoming events.

VueMinder Calendar Lite provides a number of reminder options including pop-up reminders and desktop alerts. Desktop alerts fade into view unobtrusively in the lower-right corner of the screen. Recently viewed or dismissed reminders are easily accessible and can be redisplayed with a single click.

VueMinder Calendar Lite supports the iCalendar standard, allowing subscriptions to calendars located on both your local network or over the web. You can also export to iCalendar files, and use those in other calendar programs. A wide variety of print layouts and styles are also provided, along with a dynamically updating print preview window that allows you to instantly see what will be printed as the various printing options are modified.

For an even more full-featured calendar program, consider trying VueMinder Calendar Pro, which allows you to publish calendars over the web or to your local network, import and export to Excel, sync with Outlook, send SMS and email reminders, customize the interface with themes and user-defined layouts, and much more.

Dan Chartrand
