    I hope I am explaining this correctly.

    I am developing a Scheduling platform for my company.  Everything is going well, except for one thing.  Our users can take half days, or get meeting requests that can split one of their recurring shifts.

    For example:

    User A has a repeating schedule M-F 8 - 5
    A request is submitted so that on Wednesday, he has a meeting from 2-3.

    I am unsure how to handle this type of exception, I would like for his Wednesday schedule to show him working 8-2, then meeting, then 3-5 and not two entries showing a meeting and then his schedule.

    Is this possible using Kendo or even in the RFC 5545 standard?

    Is this going to have to be done programatically in that I search my calendar for the user, find his schedule and parse his recurrence than figure out what day he works and hours and enter multiple events so that there would be 3 exceptions for the scenario listed above?  (one for 8-2, one for 2-3, and one for 3-5)

    Or is there a way to create the new meeting request from 2-3 then have that appointment's ID excepted from the recurrence rule?

    Hello Robert,

    This can be achieved using the scheduler and it's dataSource API. For convenience I created small example which you can use as baseline to achieve the desired behavior:
