Meta-Schedule Calendar

Hi there,

When it comes to processing enrolments, it would be great to have a version of the calendar that shows instructors' meta-schedules. That way we could see what's really a gap in their schedule rather than just a student with a cancelled lesson that week.

It obviously wouldn't have actual dates, but would need to have a time period selector instead. And clearly it could only show one day at a time.

It would be good if we could choose to display it with instructors along the top, and locations shown in each enrolment, or with locations along the top and instructors shown in each enrolment.

And it would be fantastic if we could choose to restrict it to a certain instrument, as long as the full schedule of any instructor who has that instrument listed is shown, regardless of what instrument their enrolments are actually in.

Thanks for your time,
Paul

You're the best Paul :) We actually did build something exactly like you're describing at one point but because very complicated and I think there were problems with the performance (speed) of the calendar due to all the information it required. However we've gotten better at building complicated features like this so we might think about giving it another shot?

So what you want to see is whether or not an instructor is free every Tuesday at 2pm and not just during the particular Tuesday you happen to be looking at, is that right?

Also you lost me with your last comment:

"And it would be fantastic if we could choose to restrict it to a certain instrument, as long as the full schedule of any instructor who has that instrument listed is shown, regardless of what instrument their enrollments are actually in."

Probably my fault, it's late here :) Could you give me an example?

Thanks Paul :)

Wow, it's official that I'm the best!

Yes you've understood what we want. And to explain where I've lost you...

An example would be a teacher who teaches both piano and guitar. If we're enrolling a new piano student, it would be helpful if we could restrict the calendar to displaying piano teachers, but we want it to still show this teacher's guitar lessons so it doesn't look as though there's a space available for a new piano student.

Thanks,
Paul

Paul (and Greg) - you rock!  This would be a very helpful feature to have!  Related to this would be a function in the calendar view that gave us the option to view ONLY those studios or instructors who actually have students on the calendar for that day - instead of having to scroll multiple times across all of them to view the teachers who are working on a particular day.
