The ASP.NET MVC Scheduler, or event calendar, is a fully-featured calendar control that that allows users to manage their time efficiently. It facilitates easy resource scheduling, rescheduling appointments through editor pop-ups, drag and drop, and resizing actions.
A wide variety of built-in view modes are available: day, week, work week, month, agenda, month-agenda, and timeline views. This allows you to easily configure each individual view with different, view-specific options.
Display appointments for a single day or across multiple days.
Display appointments on a single day or multiple days for an entire month.
Load the events virtually and display them as a list in a sequential order grouped by day. An option exists to specify the number of days to load initially in the agenda view.
Display the calendar layout and the events of the currently selected date. A round indicator at the bottom of a date shows the presence of one or more events on that day.
Five built-in timeline views are available: timeline day, timeline week, timeline workweek, timeline month, and timeline year. Each view displays events accurately across a horizontal time axis for a single day or multiple days.
To provide better performance, timeline views load resources and appointments virtually on every scroll action.
Easily configure each individual view mode such as day, week, and month, with different calendar settings. For example, you can enable the grouping feature on month view, and apply event templates on week view.
The ASP.NET MVC Scheduler (event calendar) has a highly responsive layout and a finely optimized design for desktops, touch screens, and smart phones. It works well on all mobile phones that use iOS, Android, or Windows 8 OS.
User-friendly touch gestures and an interactive UI design on schedulers help to produce the best user experience.
The Scheduler user interface adapts automatically on mobile and desktop devices. This helps the application to scale elegantly across all form factors without any additional effort.
Data binds seamlessly with various local and remote data sources such as: JSON, RESTful services, OData services, and WCF services.
The ASP.NET MVC Scheduler loads data on demand by default to reduce the transfer and load times. Proper field mapping is mandatory while binding Scheduler to the data sources with different field names.
You can block specific time ranges on ASP.NET MVC Scheduler to prevent the creation of appointments in those time slots.
The Scheduler provides clear, vibrant, exact representations of appointments across the scheduler timeline, based on their assigned time duration.
There is built-in support for better event handling, such as easier appointment creation and editing using the default event editor or through intuitive drag-and-resize actions. In addition, you can also add custom data fields to both the events and resource data source.
Easily select multiple events at once by pressing and holding the Ctrl key while single-clicking on events. On mobile devices, do the same by tap holding an event, and continuing with single-tapping on the consecutive events.
The customizable tooltip displays event information while the mouse pointer is hovering over the event. Do the same on mobile devices by tapping and holding an event.
Easily configure recurring events to repeat on a daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly basis with integrated recurrence options.
Change the look and feel of Scheduler appointments by customizing their default appearance and style using any HTML or CSS.
Built-in support is available for assigning resources to events as well as scheduling resources. Group appointments based on resources or dates. Grouping resources by date provides a quick overview of each resource’s availability. You can also set different working days for each resource.
A built-in option has been added to the ASP.NET MVC Scheduler to automatically increase the height of the rows in month and timeline views when new concurrent appointments are added.
Context menu integrated with ASP.NET MVC Scheduler opens when the cells or appointment is right-clicked.
Real-time appointment data accurately synchronizes with our ASP.NET MVC Scheduler.
Easily synchronize events between our ASP.NET MVC Scheduler and Google/Outlook Calendar via the Google Calendar API or Microsoft Outlook’s Object library.

The ASP.NET MVC Scheduler offers a built-in method to open the default event editor window programmatically.
The modern and trendy UI design of the ASP.NET MVC Scheduler makes the user interactions simpler and more efficient.
Clicking or tapping on events displays their important details, such as subject and timing, along with edit and delete options.
Click and drag the pointer over the scheduler cells for multiple cell selection. You can do the same with keyboard shortcuts.
Clicking on the text indicator (+n more) in month and timeline views will open an event container listing all the hidden appointment details of a day.
The ASP.NET MVC Scheduler provides an intuitive way to navigate back and forth among the date ranges using an inline calendar, and also to navigate between different view modes.
Integrate different date-time formats and cultures. This allows the ASP.NET MVC Scheduler to function globally, thus meeting the diverse needs of different regions.
The ASP.NET MVC Scheduler displays the current date and time by following the globalized date and time formats.
Display the static text, date content, and time mode of a scheduler following the localized language.
Render the event scheduler following the proper right-to-left conventions, thus displaying the layout from right to left.
The ASP.NET MVC Scheduler is easily accessed by screen readers. Complete keyboard interaction support has also been provided.
The ASP.NET MVC Scheduler has complete WAI-ARIA accessibility support. The Scheduler UI includes high-contrast visual elements, helping visually impaired people to have the best viewing experience. Also, the valid UI descriptions are easily accessible through assistive technologies such as screen readers.

The Scheduler control integrates easily with any web framework:
The ASP.NET MVC Scheduler works well with all modern web browsers such as Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Safari, and IE11. It requires MomentJS poly-fill to make the Scheduler time zone conversions work further with the IE11 browser and iOS mobile versions.
Many real-time applications use schedulers as integral parts, thus they serve different purposes based on the project type. Some of the active applications are: Fare Calendar, Meeting Room Calendar, Doctor’s Appointment planner, Hotel Room reservation.
Four built-in SASS-based themes are available such as: Material, Bootstrap, Fabric, and High Contrast.
Simplify theme customization either by overriding the existing SASS styling or creating custom themes by using the Theme Studio application.
