- Sub-resources enable users to view appointments based on their subcategory in day and week views.
- In timeline and day views, you can specify the resource count that needs to be displayed per view.
Appointments provide information about events to occur at specified times.
- In addition to default schedule appointments, users can use their own collection and bind a business object to an appointment. This is done by mapping fields such as start time, end time, subject, notes, and recurrence.
- Any type of IEnumerable data binding is supported.
