    I want to give users an easy way to create new appointments, instead of searching through shceduler weeks.

    Here is what I am thinking about :

    I have a DataSource that accourding to appointment duration, available time slots (like working hours) and existing appointments, can give me free time areas where the new appointment can be placed without overlapping existing ones.

    I want to do is showing them a sort of datetime slider where user can drag the new appointment to the place they want, like a slider.
    Visible date range can be set, and working hours (for each day) too.

    The dragging element can be templated (for custom text and color), with size according to new appointment duration.

    Moving new appointment into a slot with more available time than the appointment duration (like a 20min appointment sliding in a 1h slot) can be snapped to a customizable number of minutes (ex: for 5min, dragging appointment can make it start at +0min, next step is at +5min, +10min etc...)

    Slider rail can be templated (at least to see if areas are available or not) to show different type of available time slots.

    Today, I know that none of your controls can achieve this, if I want a control with this behavior, I have to make it myself.

    Do you think that your team could make a control like this ? Or if you have a idea of how I can create my control...
