Overview

JavaScript Scheduler, or event calendar, is a fully featured event calendar component that helps users manage their time efficiently. It facilitates easy resource scheduling and the rescheduling of events or appointments through editor pop-ups, drag and drop, and resizing actions.


Multiple scheduler views

A wide variety of built-in view modes are available: day, week, workweek, month, agenda, month-agenda, year, and timeline. Easily configure each individual view with different, view-specific options.

Day, week, and workweek views

Display events and appointments for a single day or across multiple days.

Month view

Display events and appointments on a single day or multiple days for an entire month.

Agenda view

Load events virtually and display them as a list in a sequential order grouped by day. Specify the number of days to load initially in the agenda view.

Month 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.

Year view

Year view displays all the months of a particular year in a calendar view format. In that calendar view, dates containing appointments are highlighted with dots placed under the date. When you click on the date, the event pop-up will be displayed and the events will be listed.


Timeline views

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.


Unique view configurations

Easily configure each individual view mode with different calendar settings. For example, you can enable the grouping feature for the month view and apply event templates to the week view.


Extensible view intervals

Display multiple days, weeks, and months by extending each view mode based on the provided interval count.


Inline appointment

With this feature enabled, users can create and edit appointments inline through a single click on the scheduler cells or on an existing appointment’s subject. Pressing Enter after the new subject text is typed in the inline text box will update and save the appointment appropriately.


Responsive and touch-friendly

The JavaScript Scheduler 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.

Adaptive UI

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 binding

Data binds seamlessly with various local and remote data sources, such as JSON, RESTful services, OData services, and WCF services.

The JavaScript Scheduler loads data on demand by default to reduce the transfer and load times. Proper field mapping is mandatory while binding Scheduler to data sources with different field names.

Data binding options available in JavaScript Scheduler.


Block time interval

You can block specific time ranges to prevent the creation of appointments in those time slots.


Advanced event handling options

The JavaScript Scheduler provides clear, vibrant, exact representations of events and appointments across the scheduler timeline, based on their assigned time duration.

Add and edit capabilities

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.

Regardless of the system time zone, the JavaScript Scheduler supports setting the required time zone for the control itself, as well as events.


Multiple resources and grouping

Built-in support is available for assigning resources to events as well as scheduling resources. Group events and 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.


Row auto height

Automatically increase the height of the rows in month and timeline views when new concurrent events or appointments are added.


Context menu

The context menu integrated with JavaScript Scheduler opens when a cell or appointment is right-clicked.

We do not sell the JavaScript Scheduler separately. It is only available for purchase as part of the Syncfusion JavaScript suite, which contains over 70 JavaScript components, including the Scheduler. A single developer license for the Syncfusion Essential Studio for JavaScript suite costs $995.00 USD, including one year of support and updates. On top of this, we might be able to offer additional discounts based on currently active promotions. Please contact our sales team to see if you qualify for any additional discounts.

You can find our JavaScript Scheduler demo here.

No, our 70 JavaScript components, including Scheduler, are not sold individually, only as a single package. However, we have competitively priced the product so it only costs a little bit more than what some other vendors charge for their scheduler alone. We have also found that, in our experience, our customers usually start off using one of our products and then expand to several products quickly, so we felt it was best to offer all 70 JavaScript components for a flat fee of $995/developer. On top of this, we might be able to offer additional discounts based on currently active promotions. Please contact our sales team to see if you qualify for any additional discounts.

No, this is a commercial product and requires a paid license. However, a free community license is also available for companies and individuals whose organizations have less than $1 million USD in annual gross revenue and five or fewer developers.
