Virto Calendar is a handy tool that can be used by anyone that work in an environment where Microsoft Office is a core utility.
That being said, the main function of this tool is to manage multiple Office 365 Calendars in SharePoint, and overlay Exchange Online calendars with other Office 365 calendars as a single SharePoint calendar.
This allows the tool to enhance the productivity of anyone using it by centralizing all of the data that would otherwise be scattered in multiple workspaces.
Vito Calendar’s system requirements
Because Vito Calendar is basically and add-on to SharePoint and Exchange, the tool itself has system requirements that are way below that of the programs that they enhance.
As such, the only true requirements are the following:
- Required software: SharePoint Online / Office 365
- Installed browsers: Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 or higher, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox.
- Enhances productivity via a workflow scheduler
- Efficiently manages multiple Office 365 calendars
- Comes with built-in alerts and reminders features
- Greatly improves task monitoring and the ability to meet deadlines
- The interface may seem convoluted for some
Try before you buy
Everyone knows that Office 365 is strictly subscription-based, and that the price tag itself is not something to be ignored, especially on a large scale, such as within a company.
That is way it is great that software that integrates itself with one of Office 365’s tools can be tested for free, so that you can have better judgement when it comes to subscribing to it or not.
That being said, Virto Calendar can be tried for free in the form of a Demo, and while some of the features are indeed disabled or available in limited form, the core functions made available are more than enough to give you an idea of what subscribing to the software truly involves.
