CRMs are too bloated, so I am looking for simple appointment setting and follow-up script/program that I can use locally using XAMMP on Windows 7.

There are some packages that let you set dates in calendars but things like log phone calls and record customer is something for a more complete CRM package.
Maybe some developer already has some thing ready to do that.

Thanks for replying.
Yes it is going to be challenge.
Here is a calendar render class.
I have created something that you are wanting, but not in a self contained package. It is more complex than a simple class. You will need a method to: 1. Set and store the appointments. I would say a database is good for that, but there are other methods too. I'd suggest a database with the appropriate tables. 2. A scheduled script to check and see if appointment notifications need to go out. 3. An email delivery system to send those appointments out. Make sure your emails follow best practices.
Hope this helps. Enjoy

Thank you Anthony
Have downloaded your calendar render class. I am sure that it will help.
It's the db design and relationships that I am concentrating on to begin with.
For the coding to make to do what I want it to do is what will present a massive challenge.

Maybe you need to combine with other classes. Take a look at what else you need and post separate recommendation requests to ask for each component that may solve individual problems.
