Why Gravitybox Schedule.NET?
Gravitybox Schedule is a third-party tool written in response the to the vacuum of third-party scheduling components. Few companies have any type of scheduling software available. The selection that is available is incomplete at best and non-functional at worst. Many of the existing applications deal mainly with scheduling in a very narrow context, such as employee scheduling or task scheduling. Many of these applications display the schedules as Gantt graphs. Most people who have created schedules by hand are familiar with the appointment book model or grid display. This appears to be an obvious way to display scheduled information; however the lack of software that displays information in these formats is noticeably missing.
Set the display of the schedule to any factor of 60.
There are numerous "Before..." and "After..." events. These allow you to know when an action is pending and when that action is complete. For example the BeforeAppointmentRemove and AfterAppointmentRemove. (
Colors and Transparency
The colors of the header and grid are configurable as well as those for each appointment. Appointments also may be partially transparent. (
There are numerous build-in dialog screens. The most commonly used is the appointment property dialog. Also there are configuration dialogs for the various collections for rooms, categories, and providers. There allow you to have an easy to use configuration screen if you do not wish to build your own. (
Define areas that do not allow appointments. A NoDropArea will not allow the user to create or edit appointments in their defined area. (
Appointments may be exported to/from XML files or the international standard vCalendar format. This allows you to export your data to MS-Outlook
of other vCalendar applications.
This property allows you to display your appointment data in a multitude of ways. (
This component may be used to allow appointment edits. The default appointment property dialog wraps this component and it fine for most developers. However this component is exposed as public for those who wish to build their own edit screen.
Appointments may be used to create a recurrence pattern. This pattern will create a number of appointments that match the pattern. An example is an appointment that occurs each Monday for 3 months.
You may now create appointments that cross day boundaries. They may start on one day and stretch for any number of days.
Each appointment has a collection of icons. You may add graphics to this collection and each will be displayed on the left margin of the appointment. (
The "Apple" look-and-feel
Each appointment may be configured in many different ways. A stylish look is the one presented by the iCal application. Appointments are round with a header and transparent background.
Each appointment has numerous events. Events are raised some time before an appointment as a reminder. Also one is raised at an appointment's start. Also applications may be executed when an appointment is due. There is also a built-in alarm dialog that looks like the one presented by MS-Outlook
Some UI elements may be owner-drawn. This allows you to draw your own non-standard graphics on the schedule. This allows you to show non-standard graphic displays.
The schedule has built-in functionality for printing and previewing of the schedule graphic. (
Enhanced Graphic Displays
Customize the schedule in numerous ways. (
The schedule provides advanced searching techniques includes defining subsets and merging sets of data. (
