Hello,
We are building an application where we need to add radscheduler but before we do that we had few questions, the first one is does radscheduler have reminders and 2nd does radscheduler support multi user like (http://www.devcomponents.com/dotnetbar-wpf/WPFScheduleControl.aspx). And the 3rd one is where we need to replace the days on x-axis with people's name and the whole calendar becomes one day (which we are calling group calendar). Please let us know if this is possible.
Thanks

Hi Subodh Gupta,

Thank you for writing.

Unfortunately, RadScheduler does not currently support reminders or multiple calendars.
However these are features that are in our TODO list. We have planned to implement resource grouping functionality for the next release (Q3 2009) of RadControls for WinForms (a preview of this feature may be available earlier). The new resource grouping feature that we will implement will allow you to set a group calendar. You can take a look at the resource grouping example of our ASP.NET scheduler for an example of what resource groping looks like.

Do not hesitate to write if you have more questions or suggestions.

Sincerely yours,

Hi there

Any idea when you will be adding support for reminders in you Scheduler control? I read that it is on your TODO list.

I plan to use your scheduler in an application where email reminders will be used. I can try to write something for it, but if your solution will be released sooner than later, I would prefer to wait for it.  If not, any ideas as to how to go about sending reminders, especially for recurring items in your scheduler?

Thanks

Hi Gerrit du Preez,

Thank you for writing. We are currently working on the resource grouping functionality for RadScheduler, and unfortunately we will not have time to implement reminders for Q3 2009 release. You could relatively easily implement reminders yourself using a timer to check on a given interval (for example every minute or even less) if there is an event starting soon. And to make this work more efficiently you could check just the appointments for the next hour.

You can easily find the appointments for a day by creating a day view for this day and calling the UpdateAppointments method with the appointments collection of your scheduler instance. If you want to find the appointments for a smaller period than a day you can do that by checking the appointments in the scheduler appointments collection, and if an appointment has a recurrence rule, you can use the GetOccurrences method of the Event class.

I hope this helps. Do not hesitate to write again if you have more questions.

Sincerely yours,
Jordan

Hi again

Thanks for the speedy reply and advice.

Looking forward to the reminders being added to the scheduler, but will see what I can do in the meantime, following your guidelines.

Greetings

Gerrit
