Hi Telerik team,
I'm working for a quite small company (120 workers) and I was asked by my superior to create an intranet application to plan holidays for workers.
2 months before year end all work can start planning their holidays for upcoming year, they can do this till end of current year, when the plan is accepted then can change it only once a quarter. All this is now done manually, mostly using, paper forms, excel and from about a month with access.

What I need to do is to create a dedicated application for this that will be integrated with other Intranet applications.

In my scenario worker goes to my webpage (login done by Active Directory), he sees all workers from his department  plans and his.
Then he can plan his holidays , system should check if his holidays flans don't overlap with plans of other workers that are accepted by their supervisor. When chief of department goes to my page he sees all his workers plans and can accept them or reject.
I was thinking about using scheduler component or Gantt chart. to show planed holidays.
Searching web I found EXT Scheduler, this is mostly out of the box but done in JavaScript, and I would need 2 licenses, one for this component and second for EXT JS, besides I'm not a JavaScript developer.

What I would like to do is to buy ASP.NET AJAX suit from Telefik, because I prefer solid code, with samples, support and much more than EXT JS offers.

My question is it possible to use Your scheduler or Gantt control to create this kind of functionality.
Something like this:

On left site I would like to have list of workers and on right holiday plans. As You can see in demo from link above You are able to create new events by clicking on empty space and moving your mouse, deleting events using context menu.
What I need is to lock all plans except current logged in user and validate if current user plan don't overlap with already accepted plans.

I would like to be able to do this using Telerik controls, if this is possible then I would convince my boss to buy ASP.NET suit.

Hello Tomasz,

Thank you for your interest in RadScheduler.

You can achieve the desired functionality with RadScheduler. Please, take a look at the Resource Grouping demo and try Grouping Direction - Vertical in Timeline view.

For an entirely client-side user experience, you can use Web Service binding.

To prevent time conflicts, please consider using the approach from the Resource Availability demo.

Feel free to contact us if you have further questions.

Kind regards,
the Telerik team
