    I have a situation where I would like to ensure that related appointments shown in Timeline View of the ScheduleView are displayed in sequence, on the same line in the view.

    I'm using the ScheduleView to render "jobs" (each represented by an appointment instance). Some of these jobs are related to the same customer and occur in sequence - one starts when another one finishes.
    Using the defaults, the Schedule sometimes renders such appointments next to each other, on the same line, but other times these appoinments are split across multiple lines.

    Please see the attached screenshot for an example.
    In the attached example I would like to ensure that the three appointments in red boxes are always rendered on the same line in Timeline view, because they are related to the same customer.

    I have thought about using resources - one for each customer - but this will cause most jobs to be placed on its own line, which in turn will result in too much wasted screen space. The user will have to use vertical scrolling more to see all jobs. So I would like to achieve this without using resource grouping.

    Is this possible to do?

    Hi Thomas,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    In TimelineView by design appointments are rendered to the top of the AppointmentsPanel and it is not possible in the current version of RadScheduleView to render appointments in specific places.

    The Resource feature of the control could be useful in your scenario..

    If you have any other questions feel free to write to us again.

    All the best,
