    Event Calendar in Umbraco Backoffice

    Hello,

    I want to implement calendar functionality in Umbraco backoffice which has features similar to google calendar where admin can schedule task or events. I want the following features in calendar/Scheduler at the time of adding task/Event :

    • Setting TimeZone
    • Setting Resources
    • Setting Recurrence Pattern
    • Setting Start and End Time

    I am looking for some guidance on how i can achieve the same. I have seen "Event Calendar" package in umbraco but as it is for front end users i am not looking anything like that.

    Hi

    Its a backend customization solution youre looking into. Not really a "Getting started" project :).

    More like a "Extending Umbraco and using the API" question

    Hi Priyanka!

    I don't have a solution for you, but I may be able to point you in the right direction. I believe you are looking to create a custom section in Umbraco's Back Office. see: https://our.umbraco.com/Documentation/Extending/Section-Trees/sections

    For the Event Calendar, start with something like FullCalendar, https://fullcalendar.io/, a jquery calendar that works well and can be connected to either your own calendar data or a common one such as google or outlook.

    Good luck!

    Hi Graham,

    Thanks for the reply but i am not looking for implementing custom section, i want to add event calendar/Scheduler as a property editor in Umbraco. Also i have gone through fullcalender.io and i didn't find any options to add event/appointment or recurring events.

    Can you please suggest some other methods or approach to achieve functionality i have mention in my question.

    The documentation for creating a property editor can be found here:

    https://our.umbraco.com/documentation/Tutorials/Creating-a-Property-Editor/

    Regardless of what you use as your calendar, you will still need to do some programming to integrate it with Umbraco and include functionality such as recurring events.
