Features and Benefits
Different view modes
The ASP.NET MVC Scheduler offers wide variety of view modes such as day, week, work week, month, agenda, month-agenda, and timeline views. It allows you to easily configure each individual view with different, view-specific options. Options also exist to display multiple days, weeks, and months by extending each view mode based on the interval count.
Data binds seamlessly with various local and remote data sources such as: JSON, RESTful services, OData services, and WCF services.
Event handling options
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. Easily configurable recurring events to repeat on a daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly basis. Change the look and feel of events by customizing their default appearance and style using templates.
Drag and drop events
Reschedule appointments easily by dragging them onto the required time slots. You can also see the live time updates over the dragged appointments.
Easily extend a Scheduler event’s time by resizing either its start or end handlers. You can also see the live time updates over the resized appointments.
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.

Timeline scheduling plays a major role in the ASP.NET MVC Scheduler, as it displays resources in rows in a hierarchical tree-like structure with expand and collapse options.

You can also display the year, month, and week number text labels on each individual header row of timeline views with out-of-the-box templates.
