Hi,

We are planning on using the Scheduler timeline view for large amounts of reservations and have run in to some performance problems.

We would like to show a full week in the time-line view and use a slot duration of 30 minutes. Since actually showing the whole grid of 7 days x 30 minutes makes the scheduler pretty much unusable in Internet Explorer we would like to show only a column per day but have multiple appointments per day without stacking the appointments vertically.

I have attached a modified screenshot of the example timeline view, which looks like what we are after. What I did in the example was set the rsWrap class to absolute positioning + a narrow width and setting the rsApt class to relative positioning and a width relative to the appointment duration (with Firebug).

Before we try to implement this behavior, we would like to know if anyone has already done something similar? Or has it been tried and decided that it is not possible without very large amounts of work? Are there possibly some features built in to the scheduler that would help produce this kind of behavior? Are we going to run in to trouble trying to modify the styles of the rsWrap and rsApt classes and elements?

Hello Lasse,

This is not supported out-of-the box, but we plan to implement exact time rendering for appointments in Timeline view for the upcoming Q3 release.

If you can come up with a stable solution in the meantime, we will appreciate if you share it in the forums.


Best wishes,
Peter
