Multi day events

Chantale Laberge asked on September 18, 2015 16:19

Any ideas on how to implement multi day events? (weekly, bi-weekly, monthly...)

I think out of the box this is not implemented yet.

Thanks.

Hi Juan,

Multi day events are implemented from Kentico version 6.0. Do you have any problems or do you only wanted know if it is possible out-of-the-box?

Resource : Kentico documentation about using events or Creating events page with calendar control

Or do you mean recurring events (daily, weekly, monthly, etc)? Recurring events are not out-of-the-box, but Our MVP Brende Kehren wrote an article how to create them : How To: Create a Recurring Event in Kentico

And vote on user voice to let Kentico know that we want this in an future version : vote here!!!

If this answer helped you, please vote for my answer :-)

One approach is to create subclasses or subevents. I have done this a couple of times, where the classes are stored in a custom table, that way you could have as many classes(subevents) per event. Pretty easy to implement and also allows for the dates to be very flexible. It also looks like you are looking for recurring events, which may benefit you as well. For that, you would need to hook up a global event handler on the document type and then create x amount every x days,weeks,months,etc. There would need to be some sort of way to control and pick the recurring items and timeframe, but its easily done with a bit of custom code.

Does any of that help at all? If not, Give us some more information about your needs and what you want/prefer and we can go from there.

Thank you both, I think I'll be using Maarten's advice, and going with Brenden's article. It should do it for us.

This "Brende Kehren wrote an article how to create them : How To: Create a Recurring Event in Kentico" link appears to be broken. Really need to get access to a solution idea to implement manageable recurring events.
