We want to use the SfCalendar control so that the user can select a specific date easily and fast. Most of the time the user has to select dates which are a couple of years prior or after the current date. So we need to provide a way to switch fast to, for example, the year 2030.
When clicking on the header in the SfCalender it get´s into year mode. There the user sees all months and can select very fast the appropriate month.
But theres no way the user can select the year in that way.
Is it possible to implement such a feature? Thanks for your answers!

Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support.
Based on the provided information, your requirement of “Navigating to the specific year / month in Calendar” in Xamarin.Forms can be achieved using MoveToDate property of Calendar. As per your requirement, you can move to particular year from month by tapping the month view header and after moving to particular year view you can move to the required year by using MoveToDate property. We have prepared sample for the same, please find the sample by the following link.

I also am needing the functionality to fast switch years in the Xamarin.Forms SfCalendar control.
Can you confirm that this functionality will be in the Vol 2 2019 (June 2019) release? I am developing
with latest builds ( mostly weekly builds ) so was wondering if this would be added quicker than June 2019?
