Looking for a calendar app with these particular functions

by cestlefun17 / August 21, 2015 1:10 PM PDT

I work for a university office that manages many different study abroad programs. I am looking for a calendar app that can handle all of the deadline, application openings, info sessions, auditions, etc. that we have for about a dozen programs throughout the year.

I am looking for an app with:

*the ability to create a hierarchy of multiple calendars. I want a calendar for each program. But I want to group multiple calendars as well: I want to be able to see just the calendar for our London Screenwriting Program, or I might want to see the calendars all three programs we are running in London. Ideally there would be a filter function (e.g. type "London" and it shows me all the London calendars)

*the ability to add an event to multiple calendars: We might have an info session where are discussing two different programs. I want to create one event but add it to both programs' calendars.

*the ability to create "sub-events" e.g. create a 4-hour block reserved for auditions, and as students sign up for 15-minute slots, i can choose to see the event as either 1 4-hour event or select a drop down to view in detail the parts where students have signed up (and who they are)

*the ability for students to reserve blocks of space (see above)

*the ability to view items as a list, preferably with a filter function (e.g. type "application deadline" and it shows me the deadline for each program's application)

*a web-based application that can be accessed anywhere, on PC, Mac, or mobile

I know it's a tall order, but are there any apps you know of that meet most, if not all, of these requirements?

The only one I saw came close was all custom.

It was not off the shelf. It was some corporate calendar system that was part of a million buck ERP system.

Maybe your school has a CompSci department and you could have them develop such a thing?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
