BASIC CALENDAR "OVERLAY" NEED
Talking about single person calendars.
Yet multi sub-categories, like this:
Input through Windows mostly.
And I just tried out Zoho, I actually was impressed with its sub-calendars that are all on the one screen, in the upper-left, with their own colors. You can check-mark which ones are active for the overlay aspect, which is what this post is mostly about. One limitation, I don't think you can "Save" a view of say 5 of the 10 calendars you set up. Nonetheless it is fine, easier than most I have seen.
Possible +, not fundamental
shows on iPad (ok, Android too)
groups of people, good for BIZ - (Zoho has that)
integration with email, task, notes etc. (not that important for me, since I am Rightnote and Eudora/TheBat! oriented)
A calendar entry is quick enough to enter. the 3-second saving from a Gmail is not important, since you always tweak them anyway.
TYPES OF CALENDARS
Different types of Windows-capable entry calendars, I think they go into 3 basic categories, although some may be hybrid. Free or pay is okay, but not a monthly fee above about $3. Some good calendars are embedded in PIMs (Efficient apparently broke theirs out) and some programs in the RightNote genre might surprise you with a good calendar implementation. I'll make any adjustments to this as we go long. And I don't care much about importing or even exporting, this is meant to be the master that makes the rules. (Well, Facebook Events might be an exception, OneCalendar, not included, too simple, mentions that.)
Many of these are likely just too simple for the overlay requirement.
1) net-web online based
Google, Zoho, Outlook, 30 boxes, Timetree, Fruux, SmartDay, Jorte, Cozi. DakBoard, MineTime
2) windows home-base - Vueminder, Thunderbird, Efficient, Rainlender (literally on the desktop)
-- embedded in PIMS (Essential, Time&Chaos)
3) mobile-centric - Fantastical, Pimlical, Pocket Informant, PocketLife, Any.do, Business Calendar 2
(I am not checking if they are Windows capable yet, however, these are more for Tablet Thinking)
So what works well?
Is Zoho one of the leaders from my requirements?
This is sort of a follow-up on an earlier 2016 thread that was a bit more tablet-centric.

I've decided that for me data entry should be Windows based, either web or Desktop
