    Event Manager works great after installing in our Magento 1.7.2 webstore. We had 2 custom questions, and within a short time this is inserted by the technicians from FME. Great.

    • Hello There,I am working with a prospect who would like to integrate all their google calendar event to Magento and upon doing a research i found your extension, just wanted to check that is a case that using your extension i can bring all the calendar
      Answer
      By default Events Calendar does is not capable of this and we would have to customize the extension to make this happen or provide you with a custom solution. Please touch base with us through our rfq form with all details.
