We are trying to model the following:

Every user exists as a User in our SystemUser database table.
We have a Project table and each project can have appointments which are the appointments visible in ScheduleView.
A project also has many Project Resources which relate to a user and a role on the project.
This means that each User can relate to many Project Resources if they are allocated to many Projects.

We need to group the RadScheduleView by the User view so that if I for example was allocated to three projects my name would only appear on the left hand side once and the my appointments would have a relationship to the different project resources for myself.

I have attached a screenshot showing the issue we are currently getting by using the Project Resource directly as the ResourceGroupDescription

                    <telerik:DateGroupDescription />
                    <telerik:ResourceGroupDescription ResourceType="ProjectResource" />

Should I create the User as a ResourceType with one ResourceType for each username??
The Project Resources for that user would be added to that resource type.

Can I display multiple resource types at the same time?

Hello Steve,

It seems from the provided description that you need hierarchical resources grouping, however, in the current version of RadScheduleView such kind of grouping is not supported. We have it logged in our Feedback Portal, you can vote for it and track its progress at the following link:

In the meantime, you could create custom ViewDefinitions for each user and filter the displayed resources as demonstrated in the ScheduleView Custom Grouping example in the Silverlight Demos.

Hope this helps.
