I know there is a way to do this with RadScheduler, but need some advice on how to do so. Generally the scheduler just looks at one date with a start and end datetime. I have 5 dates I need to track for each of my clients. I need each field displayed as a specific color. I don't think there is a way to bind 5 different sets of dates to the calendar, correct?

If not, then I can write my query to return the results as a single field, but classify each as a specific type or other identifier. These should be able to be bound, then color coded by type, correct?

I simply need to display a listing on a month view for each client, but they'll have more than one listing in the same month, each a different color. The example below uses different names but illustrates what I'm discussing. A single client has a set of due dates for internal processes. I want to show a calendar that has all of the dates color coded. There may be more than one client on a single date, but they could expand the list and see everyone. A single date may have a Sched, two Reviews, and a Closure all due but for different clients. What do you advise?

Example:  
Client Name             Fred,
SchedStart               1/1/09 0:00   SchedEnd   1/1/09 0:00        Type:   Sched
RangeStart               1/3/09 0:00   RangeEnd    1/8/09 0:00      Type:   Range
ReviewStart              1/20/09 0:00  ReviewEnd  1/20/09 0:00     Type:   Review
TargetStart              1/22/09 0:00  TargetEnd  1/22/09 0:00      Type:   Target
ClosureStart              1/29/09 0:00  ClosureEnd  1/29/09 0:00   Type:   Closure

Hi Mike,

Firstly, clients should be represented by defining a resource type and using Resource Grouping.

Then, you can use this kb article to set custom style to the time slots based on your custom condition.
