Calendar view with grouping, time bars and drag&drop
As of now, calendar can only show a list of sorted registers per day and feels it is not intended to really operate as a calendar.

1) In a calendar view users are used to drag and drop events.

2) Have a day view in which they can see what time they have busy or available.

3) Have time bars for events that have a duration of several days.

4) Group events (for birthdays, or by people involved,etc)

My personal need in this moment is to be able to group registers and have time bars, this is needed because we use the application to control preventive maintenance, so we need to see with time bars which of the service engineers is available, or on vacation, or on training in a week or month view. Also to group events by engineer or by type of equipment.

There are a number of conceptual ideas we can borrow from www.toodledo.com which is the best task manager / calendar cloud based software I have found in a decade. Click on "date due" for example in this program. It also has duration estimating and collaboration. Some of the features Gerardo suggests, are even a step further!

I was thinking more of a google calendar feeling.
Agreed that Toodledo rocks, I also like remember the milk.
Being able to group data in a calendar view dont seem that complex.
Time bars, a little.
Drag and drop, maybe more.

If I could promote this 10 times I would... This would change our whole business process and make it alot simpler.
We currently use Google Calendars to schedule our factory and customer appointments - this can text/email newly created appointments and text/email reminders as well. What I'd like TD to to is this style of calendaring (with texting functionality) as well as dependent related calendar entry shifts i.e. If "x" happens (or takes longer/shorter) then "y" shifts accordingly.

I would gladly promote this 10 times Brett.
Something that could maybe be achieved in the short term is the ability to use [Start Date] and [End Date] fields that would list a record on the calendar for all dates within this range?

@Brett

We also use google calendars (google apps) for our company email, calendars, etc. Would be awesome to connect them with teamdesk so when a preventive maintenance is scheduled it would be stored in teamdesk and sync on the respective technitian google calendar as well, which will also sync with their blackberry or android phone.

Just sharing.

For now with calendar grouping and time bars our app would rock.
