Category: Scheduler
Type: Feature Request
Show scheduler events >24h as normal events, not in the all day slot
Currently events >24h are automatically shown in the all day area. This is confusing if the event starts or ends somewhere during the day. E.g. it starts at 5 p.m. on tuesday and ends on 11 a.m. on thursday.

Noone knows when the resource is really available if the event is shown as all day from tuesday to thursday.

There should be an option to turn that behaviour off and show such events as regular events.

Maybe the only thing needing change is this line in _renderEvents:
var isMultiDayEvent = event.isAllDay || event.end.getTime() - event.start.getTime() >= MS_PER_DAY;

Hey everyone!

Wanted to jump in here and provide some additional inks to help out. As this item already shows, we updated the behavior of events that span for 24 hours or longer within the Scheduler. We still give you the ability to mark days as "all day" events in a dedicated section at the top of the Scheduler. However, for events that span 24+ hours we will now display an event that shows an event in the regular event section of the Scheduler.

You can play around with this behavior in any of the Kendo UI for jQuery Scheduler demos.

We want to have this feature as well. This is supported in de RadScheduler for 10 years or more.

Showing those events as an all day event makes it hard to see the start and end time of the event.

Thanks in advance,

Dear support,

Our organisation would also like to request this feature:

"There should be an option to turn that behaviour off and show such events as regular events."

Our implementation needs this. I've checked for alternative solutions but none are viable unfortunately. It cannot be worked around because the start and end time of events and should always be visible to the user. Also it should be visible that a certain time slot is blocked. By moving 24h+ events to a different slot completely this creates problems and makes things unclear for users. 

Thanks in advance for considering to implement this feature. The scheduler is working great otherwise!

Kind regards,

Pim Verbakel

I just started using the schedule, and spent a good hour trying to figure out why my events were showing up as All Day, even though AllDay was false.

I would suggest that anytime someone disable allDaySlot, all those events should be replaced by their equivalent representation in the full time schedule. So, a event taking all day should be shown as FirstTimeOfDay to LastTimeOfDay. And as other said, events spanning over multiple days shall be as they described.

We need it too. We have events that start at 6pm at ends at 3am with all slots disabled and cannot see it to modify or delete.

I agree with Guillaume, to me it would make sense that if the allDaySlot is set to false then the mutli-day events are rendered as normal events

Another issue with this behavior comes when the allDaySlot is set to false. The events just disappears from the view and it looks like a bug in the scheduler until you understand they are just moved to the invisible slot.

I also need that! I tried removing that line, but then I get errors on some rectangle draw function or something.
