    In our system, you are able to associate multiple staff members to a single Appointment object. 

    How would we accomplish showing this on the scheduler? From the looks of it, the scheduler requires a 1 to 1 relation between the staff and the appointment.

    Here is a rough example of our structure... Link

    Hello Mike Baldini,

    Thank you for writing.

    We already support such functionality in RadScheduler. You can find the available documentation here also you can look at the following example in our demo application Scheduler - Data Binding. In this example is demonstrated how to bind multiple resources to the appointment. In addition we do not provide a way to represent multiple resources in our EditAppointmentDialog and you should replace the control that represents these resources. Please check this help article for more information.

    If you have other questions, feel free to contact me.

    Kind regards,
    Dobry Zranchev

    Am I blind or is it that the examples are not showing how to assign mulitple resources to a single appointment? The combo doesn't let you pick multiple resources.

    Do you have a full sample somewhere in which you have a checklistbox or any other control that let the user pick any number of resources and persist them?

    Hi Eric,

    Thank you for writing.

    Such functionality can be achieved by creating a custom EditAppointmentDialog. The following  KB article demonstrates this approach. I hope it helps.

    Feel free to ask if you have any further questions.
