Read Weekly or daily calendar by Henry P @ 10/31/2016
What I want to know is if I pay for the Calendar Template, will these items I mention be included there: Daily calendar, Weekly calendar, setting appointments and have the code make sure the time slot is already booked, repeating tasks, etc... all the typical features of a calendar.

Reply from Alex Hedley:

There is a free demo download of the calendar so you can, scroll down to the bottom of the page to find the links. You can then try it out.

The Calendar Seminar doesn't cover Daily/Weekly, only Monthly, but it wouldn't be hard to apply the knowledge and previous suggestions to add your own.

The Work Order Seminar covers Scheduling. This covers checking a Table for current appointments and showing when the next available one is.

I've made a tip for Multiple Days, this could be amended to do every x day.

Thanks, how do I create a daily calendar

Reply from Alex Hedley:

Depends how you want to display the data but just create a DailyF and get the Data based on the Date picker from the original Form.
You could just show 1 listbox and still have the forward/back buttons.

You mention that it is quite easy to just convert to a weekly, or daily calendar, I did not find it that easy, can you explain further?
Also, how can I add a more user friendly and realistic control for the calendar, usually you would have arrows to allow user to browse the following or previous period, you usually don't need to input the date in a date picker, also would like to see if I can add alarms, if I can add different calendars erg: calls to make, to dos, appointments set, must do today's. and then create lists of the items in each calendar where I would be able to address all items in sequence until done with the day or period.

Reply from Alex Hedley:

I've added the links to the Addendums in the previous post.
The Template would be a good one to use.

The Advanced Date Seminar covers setting up alerts based on a DateTime you could combine the two.

You could extend the Event to have another Field which is a Type and show a Symbol next to the event or maybe some sort of colour difference.

After completing your calendar seminar, you mentioned that it would be simple to create a weekly, yearly or daily calendar, but did not ever address thr HOW TO,
Can you expand?

Reply from Alex Hedley:

You have the principles for showing a month, just use those calcs for a week or year.
Daily just have it open the date you picked then you could have the plus/minus buttons to move between.

Have you watched the Addendums?
